There have been a lot of talks regarding the iPhone 8 of late. From the rumored delayed release to the display supply from Samsung. Now, it seems that some more details are shared with the new leaked image of what appears to be a drawing of the phone.
According to a post from ifanr.com, the iPhone 8’s 5.8-inch OLED display is actually a 2.5G panel that houses the fingerprint scanner beneath. Furthermore, the display will also have a 4mm bezel on all sides of the device. At the top-most part of the iPhone 8, a collection of sensors are also mounted behind the screen itself.
In the same report, one can also see the overall size of the iPhone. Based on the image posted, it is no bigger than an iPhone 7 Plus. The iPhone 8 measures 67.54mm wide and 137.54mm tall. The display panel is actually 5.768 inches diagonally and as mentioned earlier, there is a 4mm gap around the display.
At the top of the display, there appears to be a 3D camera on the left side of the earpiece. The other sensors to the right of the earpiece still remain unknown but one can assume that it has something to do with imaging.
Apart from the detailed drawing, the report also mentioned that the iPhone 8 will indeed have the fingerprint sensor behind the display. This is quite a surprise since just last week, it was reported that Apple was having issues with the fingerprint sensor and the display. In earlier reports, Apple was said to be having problems merging the two together with the current display bonding technology.
As per usual, this is nothing but a mere rumor and Apple has not given any official statement to either deny or confirm it. Readers are urged to take this piece of information with a grain of salt. For more updates on the iPhone 8, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
