Alleged Videos Straight Off Of The Production Line In Foxconn Show iPhone 8’s Back Panel

We’ve covered iPhone 8 leaks from nearly every source over the past couple of months. These paint a holistic picture for the device, devoid of little details. Of course, expect Apple to have kept a couple of surprises under their hat, just like the iPhone 7/iPhone 7 Plus’ custom ISP didn’t make it to the rumor mill last year. But the majority of features for the iPhone 8 are out, leaving us to wonder what surprises has Apple got for us this year.

Speaking of leaks, Apple and its Eastern manufacturing partners go to great lengths in order to ensure that information does not leak out to the press. Foxconn takes strict security measures to ensure that its workers don’t sneak details out of manufacturing facilities. And Apple’s got an entire team full of retired FBI and Intelligence agents dedicated to tracing down those who do share information with unauthorized sources.

Today, we’ve got a video which appears to be captured straight off the manufacturing line at Foxconn. Or at least that’s what its source would like us to believe. As mentioned above, Foxconn takes serious security measures especially for Apple’s products. No electronic gadgets of any sort are allowed inside facilities. So if this video really is authentic, we’re curious to know how exactly did the source manage to capture running Apple production lines in China.

Little new details can be discerned from the video, and we can see what appears to be a vertical dual camera sensor. Apple’s expected to make a lot of upgrades to the iPhone this year, of which the most important will be the vertical dual camera. It’ll facilitate 3D and VR for the iPhone 8, bringing the feature for the first time to a flagship smartphone. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. We’ll keep you updated on the latest.
