The iPhone 8 concept below, created by designer Moe Slah and published to Behance, might be the most realistic iPhone 8 concept yet. It takes a lot of the rumors we’ve heard out of Apple’s supply chain and puts them together into a beautiful concept that actually makes a lot of sense. No, these weren’t made by Apple.
There are a couple changes here that are noteworthy. For one, the entire front of the iPhone 8 concept’s display is usable screen, which aligns with rumors that Apple’s going to get rid of all of bezels on its device. We don’t see a curved screen, however, which made an appearance in a similarly convincing concept that we ran last week.

We also get a look at how the new fingerprint reader might work if it’s embedded below the display. That, too, is on a par with rumors that suggest Apple may get rid of the home button entirely and will instead build a fingerprint reader right below the display. Companies such as Synaptics are already selling this sort of functionality for next-generation smartphones. It’s unclear if Apple will use that tech specifically, but competitors such as Samsung are allegedly planning to build similar functions into next-gen devices.
The concept is gorgeous and it seems just conservative enough to look like something Apple might actually build. Can’t say I’m wild about the off-center home button/fingerprint reader, but it’s plausible, at least given the location on the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.
