Leaked iPhone 8 Rear Schematic Likely Fake

A new leak of the iPhone 8 shell is likely fake.

A leaked schematic that is supposed to show the iPhone 8 rear shell is likely fake. The schematic published by Sonny Dickson (see below) got widely published this morning on Apple blogs. Famous smartphone leaker OnLeaks aka Steve Hemmerstoffer just released a markup of the schematic that shows that this is very likely a manipulated iPhone 7 plus part.

My take is that this schematic is a fabrication. Judge for yourself below.

The most obvious inconsistency is the still present flash compartment nowhere near the new dual camera location. The iPhone 8 is rumored to have a vertical aligned dual camera. The iPhone 8 schematic also picked up the rumor that Apple is moving the finger print sensor to the rear. If that happens, I hang on to my iPhone 7 Plus until it dies.

Apple and Samsung struggled before with integrating fingerprint sensing in the screen. CrucialTec has registered a patent for a transparent fingerprint sensor. It is unclear if they can make the sensor in mass quantities in time for the iPhone 8 launch.

The iPhone 8 aka 10th anniversary iPhone is said to be the first iPhone with OLED display. Apple aims to have an edge-to-edge screen on the new flagship iPhone that could break the $1,000 price barrier. More iPhone 7S and iPhone 8 rumors.
