Apple IPhone 8 Dummy Hands-on Video Shows Vertical Dual-camera Setup, Bezel-less Design

Originally Published On News |

The purported iPhone 8 in the video also seems to be thicker than existing iPhones, but the most interesting bit here is the lack of Touch ID. It is not clear whether Apple is ditching the Touch ID altogether, but most rumours suggest that the company will instead offer an iris scanner similar to the one found on Samsung's Galaxy S8 duo. Apple could also ship the next iPhone with an under display fingerprint sensor. 

The video also shows the vertically mounted dual rear camera setup separated by a LED flash. The new camera setup is expected to offer new augmented reality features based on ARKit that was announced at WWDC. The dummy unit in the video seems docked on a standard iPhone stand, suggesting that Apple's 2017 iPhone lineup will continue to use the lightning port, and won't adopt the new USB-C standard. 

Most rumours suggest that Apple's OLED iPhone will feature stainless steel casing with glass back, and support wireless charging. The smartphone is expected to be powered by the A11 chipset, and offer a slightly larger battery compared to its predecessors. A recent report suggested that Apple will have only 3-4 million units of the iPhone 8 at the time of launch due to supply constraints. The handset could be priced around $1,000 making it the most expensive iPhone yet.
