Evan Blass is a leakster with a solid – so far – reputation and earlier today he released an impressive image of the purported iPhone 8, encased in an Urban Armor case, taken presumably by the manufacturer after having received the official (final) design of the iPhone 8 from Apple.
If we take a good look at the image we can see that it correlates with all the previous leaked images and rumors about the design of the most awaited model. According to it, there’s a 5.8 inch display positioned in front, with minimal bezels and a small cut out on the top side, where the speaker and camera/iris scanner is positioned. The image also confirms the placement of the iPhone’s side keys, like the volume rocker and the Mute switch positioned on top of it.

Apple is expected the iPhone 8 as a “premium” alternative equipped with an OLED display, along with two more models: an “iPhone 7S” and an “7S Plus”, which are thought to retain standard LCD displays. The Cupertino based company plans to unveil the device next month (September) and have it ready for launch by October. Apart from this features, the new iPhone will be equipped with wireless charging capability, a front-facing dual-lens camera with 3D sensing capabilities, and longer battery life.
As always all of the above are rumors, so we have to be careful for the time being.
