New iPhone 8 Rendering May be Our Best Glimpse Yet

iPhone 8 rendering shows cameras and sensors in a front cutout area atop the display

Forbes has posted up a new rendering that might be exactly what the iPhone 8 looks like. The rendering is notable because it takes recent details gleaned from the Apple supply chain and mashes them up to arrive at the image you see here.

Previous rumors claimed that the front cameras and the fingerprint sensor are under the screen. The first leak that contributed to the rendering comes from Weibo and the second came from a dude called Benjamin Geskin in the form of a schematic that was leaked out of the supply chain.

Both show an iPhone 8 with a nearly bezel free design. The front camera, or possibly cameras are placed in a cutout that extended a bit into the screen. That cutout will, according to Forbes, leave an area for permanent info like time, date, and signal strength.

Notifications are expected to be sown in the function area on the bottom of the screen that replaces the old physical home button. There's something about these renderings that make me curious though. That clearly appears to be a fingerprint scanner on the back of the rendering under the Apple logo. Forbes doesn't mention what that might be.

Rumors continue to suggest that Apple has had a very difficult time getting a fingerprint scanner to work under the front glass. We learned this month that rumors are showing that production of the iPhone 8 chips is now running smoothly. As for when the iPhone 8 will launch, one analyst thinks it will be in June. Most expect an announcement this fall and a launch in the last quarter of 2017.
