The Closest Look yet at the iPhone 8

Leaks of Apple’s upcoming iPhone have hit critical levels: aside from renders and third-party cases and screen protectors, there is even a prototype now that has been CNC manufactured, giving a clear idea of what the device will both look and feel like. I think the black strip containing the earpiece and cameras at the top of the phone looks funny.

...Steve Hemmerstoffer - @OnLeaks on Twitter - reportedly obtained detailed schematics for Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone. According to Hemmerstoffer, the information was "sourced directly from the factory in charge of building the new iPhone," and then CNC manufactured to create a prototype. The results are basically what we’d been hearing: thinner bezels, a 5.8-inch display, and the same damn camera bump in the rear we all just wish would go away. The new 5.8-inch screen size, notably, is slightly larger than the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus. But it’s footprint, due to the smaller bezels, is smaller.
