Apple iPhone 8 Prototype Images Show Vertical Dual Camera, Bezel & Sensor Free Display
Over the past couple of weeks, we've started to see leaks related to the iPHone 8 take place regularly. This is despite the fact that the device isn't set to be unveiled until September. And if we're to believe some more rumors, then it won't be launched before the very end of this year either. All of this hasn't stopped speculation around the device, as we've got some more alleged iPhone 8 images for you today. Take a look below to find out more.
Alleged iPhone 8 Prototype In A Protective Case Shows Vertical Dual Camera Once Again
The iPhone 8 is a highly hyped device. Apple's in a tough corner with the smartphone lineup, one that contributes to the majority of Cupertino's sales revenues. The iPhone hasn't changed much over the past couple of years and market interest around the device is fading. Apple's last widely successful iPhone launch was the iPhone 6 Plus, which managed to gain a lot of new users for the company.
Since then, there have been few major changes to the lineup. While Cupertino has introduced upgrades such as 3D Touch and dual cameras, the overall look and feel for the devices remains largely the same. There haven't been any major design upgrades and Apple has also hesitated to make the shift towards OLED, owing to supply chain constraints.
Today's alleged images for the iPhone 8 once again confirm what we've been hearing so far. The device will feature a dual camera and will also feature virtual fingerprint recognition. Apple's rumored to take a strong 3D/VR approach with the iPhone 8, as the tech finally becomes implementable on a scale that's convenient to the everyday user. To facilitate this, Cupertino will arrange the dual camera sensors 'horizontally' for the iPhone 8 when viewed in portrait mode.
For virtual fingerprint recognition, the rumor mill paints a mixed picture. While several sources claim that the feature will make it on the iPhone, we've also seen renders of the device with a rear fingerprint sensor surface. Given that Apple will rather stick with haptic fingerprint recognition on the front rather than an ugly rear fingerprint sensor, you can discount them as fakes at the moment. Pulling this feature off will be a huge win for Cupertino, as it was the first company to introduce fingerprint recognition for flagship smartphones. Thoughts?
