iPhone 8 renders reveal what the handset may look like

Designer Benjamin Geskin has published a series of high quality renders revealing what the iPhone 8 may look like, assuming many of the biggest leaks and rumors thus far are true. Geskin tasks himself with making realistic-looking renders based on such leaks, and his work is great to say the least. This time around, we see a sleek iPhone with an edge-to-edge design, no physical Touch ID, and more.

The biggest bits from rumors and reports are in place — we see a large 5.8-inch OLED display on the renders, something mentioned in many leaks, as well as Touch ID that is, in this case, embedded underneath the display rather than presented with a physical sensor. The elimination of that sensor means the display stretches to the bottom of the phone, a first for Apple (if it proves true).

Whether we'll actually see such an arrangement on the so-called 'iPhone 8' is unknown. Reports have surfaced claiming that Apple is struggling to find an adequate solution for such an implementation, and more recently a supposed render of the phone has surfaced showing a Touch ID sensor moved to the back of the handset. The difficulties in figuring this issue out could result in Apple delaying mass production of the handset, at least if these reports are correct.

Geskin claims his renders are 'based on real blueprints,' and they include things like 4mm bezels and a metal frame. Though you can't exactly see it in the photos, the iPhone 8 (or iPhone Pro or iPhone X, if you prefer) will supposedly include wireless charging, as well as a dual-camera setup on the back with a protruding, vertical arrangement. Such a camera design has been seen on many, many iPhone 8 leaks.

Overall, we still don't actually know what the handset looks like, nor whether it'll end up delayed as rumors suggest. All signs point toward it coming with a 5.8-inch OLED display, though, as well as dual cameras and a hidden Touch ID sensor. Be sure to check out the timeline below for other recent iPhone 8 news!
