Apple’s next-generation iPhone 8 is still many months away from becoming a reality. Of course, since it’s the most hotly anticipated smartphone of the year by a huge margin, there are already plenty of leaks and rumors for Apple fans to mull over until the company’s hot new iPhone is finally unveiled in September.
The iPhone 8 will be the first iPhone to feature a big redesign since 2014 when Apple launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Since then, the iPhone 6s duo and the iPhone 7 duo have both featured what is essentially the same design. In fact, reports suggest Apple will reuse the iPhone 6 design a third time for the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus that will be unveiled alongside the iPhone 8 later this year.
Graphic designer AlHasan Husni put his skills to work recently on the iPhone 8, and he created a few mockups of a device that fits the various descriptions we’ve read so far. According to several trusted sources, Apple’s tenth-anniversary iPhone will feature a bold new design that ditches the home button and features an AMOLED display that should take up almost all of the handset’s face. The Touch ID fingerprint scanner will reportedly be embedded in the phone’s display, and the edges of the display are expected to be curved.
It’s certainly not exact, but the gorgeous shape the designer has created may indeed align with the real iPhone 8 that Apple unveils this coming summer. Also imagined here is a “dark mode” feature in iOS 11, which Apple fans around the world have been anxiously awaiting for years.
Apple’s new iPhone 8 (or iPhone Edition, or iPhone X) is expected to be unveiled alongside the new iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus this coming September, though a pair of new reports on Wednesday suggest that it might not be released until November.
