First Hands On With the iPhone 8 Model

Could this be the first hands on with a model of the iPhone 8 before it is launched? Watch the video and let us know.

It is no secret that Chinese accessory makers tend to get a first look at phones and tablets way ahead of their launch. Back when before the iPad Mini launched we managed to get our hands on a dummy version of the tablet which turned out to be a genuine model of the little tablet, and we had a similar story with the iPhone 6.

So we know that models of smartphones are available in China, but is that enough to confirm that this video shows the iPhone 8?

Apparently, the video below shows a dummy model of the iPhone 8 with a new camera layout on the rear, but featuring no Apple or iPhone branding.

On one hand the dummy does look like earlier leaks of an alloy chassis purported to be from the iPhone 8, but on the other hand, this could be any upcoming smartphone.

There’s also the case that for years now Apple has released slight upgrades between new models. For example, we had the iPhone 4 then the 4S and most recently it was the iPhone 6S after the iPhone 6. If Apple is to continue this trend then the iPhone 7S should be the next phone, not an all new iPhone 8.

    haha, ugly black brick, must be fake (I hope)!
    Cant they just copy xiaomi or come up with some bullshit apple coldplay like name – infinity display (mi max) then put an always on eink watch display with ultrasonic at the bottom. and 2 cameras is so old hat, whats wrong with 4 zoom, colour, bnw, ir or at least 960fps or something, 5X zoom oppo style. AR is going to be big as well.
    Maybe if aapl could get LTE charge times usable at least QI, seriously work makes me use this poc. Dont get me started at how useless/dated/ugly a macbook pro is for anything other than atom/dev and linux shell ))
    Or at least create an alexa app to dock to a blutooth speakers 🙂 or license osx for x86. how can a rich company have nfi.

    Weird vertical placement of the cameras, but it’s alright. Hard to make any bold statements without seeing the screen turned on.
