Latest iPhone 8 leak reaffirms all-screen front


Apple has a major iPhone redesign planned for 2017, with its glass body and edge-to-edge OLED display that does away with the Home button and replaces Touch ID with a new facial recognition system. The new iPhone may be sold alongside upgraded (but standard) 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhones.
A new image, posted by Evan Blass, provides us a view of what the screen-dominated front of the expected iPhone 8 will look like. There’s the now-familiar wedge at the top to accommodate the earpiece, front-facing camera and sensors, and then just a big old expanse of display.
The device is framed inside a big case from Urban Armor Gear, a company that has the same case for the iPhone 7 devices. The March date on the screen might suggest that it’s an old render and not strictly representative of Apple’s latest or final design, however Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who is famous for his insider sources at Apple, has also twitted in to describe this as “a good look at the notch” of the upcoming iPhone.
