iPhone 8 renders highlight vertical dual-lens camera, rear-facing Touch ID

Following a series of supposed iPhone 8 schematic leaks, multiple renders based on the rumors have popped up. The series of pictures teases the potential design changes headed to Apple’s tenth anniversary device, which is expected to feature a 5.8-inch OLED curved display.

Made by Instagram user bro.king, the images show an iPhone 8 chassis with flat edges, a vertical dual camera setup, and a rear-facing Touch ID. The shell looks like the modified chassis of an iPhone 5, rather than the “water drop design” of the original iPhone.

The iPhone 8 is expected feature a size of 149.5mm tall by 72.5mm wide, according to recently leaked schematics. That’s roughly the same size as the iPhone 7.

Apple is reportedly moving to a vertical camera layout because the arrangement produces improved image quality; the camera is also said to take advantage of extensive AR features, which Apple has previously expressed great interest in.

As for the rear-facing Touch ID sensor, the jury is still out on whether or not Apple will move the sensor to the back. There have been reports claiming Apple is struggling to place the sensor under the display, and other reports claiming Apple may not include Touch ID at all.

The iPhone 8 is expected to feature an all-glass design, and not one that’s all aluminum as the renders suggest. However, Apple is reportedly testing multiple prototypes, so this could very will be one of them.
