iPhone 8 images match previous Touch ID schematics

Earlier this week we saw an iPhone 8 leak which suggested that the Touch ID sensor would migrate to the back of Apple's next phone. Today we're looking at a set of renders which make the exact same case for the smartphone. The possibility of one source rendering images based on the other is real - but the possibility that they're independently sourced is also quite likely.

Plastc burns backers for $9m as smart credit card is declined

Three years ago the folks at Plastc came together to make a smart credit card - now that dream is over. A note sent to potential users, investors, and everyone in-between, was sent out this week.

Apple AR glasses possibly confirmed by a leaked report

Did Apple's augmented reality prototype accidentally injure one employee's eyes? That's one potential explanation being juggled for a mysterious incident report at the iPhone company, after a cache of such filings were inadvertently leaked.

Galaxy Note 8 specs tipped to match OLED iPhone 8

Estimates for shipping numbers for the Galaxy S8 have risen in KGI's books as analyst Ming-Chi Kuo taps into Galaxy Note 8 predictions. This week the analyst suggested that preliminary shipments of the Galaxy S8 have surprised him, coming in far stronger than previously expected. The Galaxy Note 8, said Kuo, will have features that not only differ from those of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus significantly, they'll likely match those of the iPhone 8 (and/or OLED iPhone) in several key areas.

The Galaxy S8’s ergonomic compromise is giving me iPhone 8 worries

The Galaxy S8’s ergonomic compromise is giving me iPhone 8 worries

If all goes according to plan (or, at least, the rumor machine's version of the plan) Apple's anniversary iPhone 8 will be a huge departure in design. After three years of iterative iPhones, the new model - one of three expected to launch later in 2017, alongside updated versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus - will usher in a huge number of changes. Curved glass and OLED displays; reworked dual cameras; and tiny bezels. I'm excited, certainly, but I'm also worried, and I'm not alone.
