Last week, an alleged iPhone 8 schematic found its way on the Internet. This leaked image shows what appears to be the back casing of the said phone. In the image, it can be seen that there is an extra hole directly below the Apple logo. Many believed that this hole will be used for the Touch ID sensor of the iPhone 8.
The leak, at some point, squashed earlier rumours of in-display fingerprint sensor for Apple’s tenth anniversary iPhone. However, new information just came out contradicting the leaks from the previous week.
Leak aggregator Slashleaks clearly shows the alleged drawings and 3D renderings of the iPhone 8. In the said drawings, one can see that there not an extra hole that may hold the Touch ID sensor at the back.
Most of the comments thus far claim that the circular hole at the back will hold the Apple logo instead of the said sensor.
Another thing worth mentioning about the images is the vertical arrangement of the camera sensors at the back. It seems like the extra hole between the camera sensors will hold the LED flash of the iPhone 8.
Finally, the images also show the outline of the front sensors at the top of the phone. These drawings further corroborate earlier reports of dual front cameras and some extra hole that might be used for depth sensing.
It is quite difficult to verify the veracity of the said leaks. However, most people who have seen the images seem to think that they are quite legitimate. Nevertheless, these images should be taken with a grain of salt.
The iPhone 8 is expected to be released later this year. Although there are numerous reports saying Apple is currently having issues with component assembly.
On the other hand, a handful of market watchers and analysts still believe that Apple will be able to pull through with the iPhone 8 production. They are still quite optimistic that consumers will get a glimpse of the phone before the year ends. For more updates on the iPhone 8, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
