Well things are getting more interesting I guess with every passing day. This time we have a set of new iPhone 8 render images that allegedly depict the finalized hardware design for the device.
According to the images, the upcoming model is expected to pack a 5,8 inch OLED display with minimal bezels (only 4 mm in size) and no home button obviously. The render of the bottom edge confirms that the 3.5 mm headset jack won’t make a return in this smartphone, and the Lightning port lives on (at least for now).

Rumors insist that it will also support USB Type-C connectivity with fast charging capability and it will have a larger On/Off button on its side that will host the Touch ID fingerprint sensor we have all been trying to find its placement.
We also expect the device to run on iOS 11, with some new design improvements and new placement for the icons on the top of the display but so far we have no idea where the front facing selfie camera will be placed. There’s however some bezel left on the top side of the render, so perhaps they will place it there.
If you are saving money for the upcoming iPhone flagship then you’d better prepare for a hefty 1100-1200$ price for the two variants of the phone: one with 128GB of storage and another one with 256GB.
