Apple may launch a new 4-inch iPhone SE next year

Apple iPhone 8 Weibo Touch ID leak

With all the big players ready to compete against each other, the world is just waiting for the last titan to appear. While Apple has been said to ditch the plans for an in-screen fingerprint scanner, and separately ditch a fingerprint scanner completely, it has reportedly not finalised the design for the rear end of the iPhone 8 till now.

A video uploaded on Thursday, August 10 offers a close-up with an alleged "iPhone 8" design dummy in "copper gold", potentially one of just three color options for Apple's upcoming flagship, AppleInsider says.

The HomePod also revealed some features of the Apple Watch 3 and Apple TV.

Winget released a similar video earlier this week, offering a glimpse at other "iPhone 8" mockups as well as the LCD-based "iPhone 7s" and "7s Plus". Steve Troughton-Smith is the Irish programmer who uncovered the product information on the HomePod firmware.

We're getting closer and closer to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7S Plus launch - expected in September.


Another developer Guilherme Rambo has discovered the reference to Pearl ID, which is the company's codename for the facial recognition system, in the code that suggests users will be able to store multiple faces and the feature will support Apple Pay, as pointed out in a report by The Verge.

Being that these were both prototype devices, this iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7S Plus video didn't give us a chance to see either device powered on in order to compare appearance.

The iconic physical home button is also removed.

Sticking with the back side of the device; you can see the different alignment for the dual camera sensors.

The black iPhone 8 replica that was shown has the same size as the Samsung Galaxy S8. Apple might have replaced it with a virtual home button called the "Home Indicator". It is not as tall as the S8, but the aspect ratio of the two should be the same. That's way bigger than the 4.7-inch screen on the iPhone 7, and even the 5.5-inch panel used on the iPhone 7 Plus.
