New renders of Apple’s iPhone 8 have been leaked online, and these renders are believed to have come from a factory that’s working on the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8 killer. The latest leak appears to be confirming what previous rumors were saying about the next iOS-running flagship smartphone. 

On Tuesday, CAD drawings of the iPhone 8 were leaked online through a collaboration between MySmartPrice, a news website that focuses on tech stories, and famous Twitter leaker @OnLeaks. While the latter stated in a tweet that the renders he was sharing were simply based upon factory CAD, the tech site maintained that what they posted online were “accurate renders” of the upcoming handset. The site also indicated that the renders show a next-generation iPhone, but it wasn’t sure if these pertain to the iPhone 8, the rumored iPhone 7s and possibly the larger iPhone 7s Plus. 

Based on the leaked images and the short clip published online, the iOS handset will come with an edge-to-edge OLED display and an all-glass back panel. Both things obviously do not come as a surprise since numerous leaks have already outed the OLED display technology and the glass panel of the device. What’s actually more interesting than the two is the stainless steel frame featured in the leaked renders. The frame goes well with the black color of the phone in the renders.

In addition, the leaked CAD drawings also put the spotlight on the vertically aligned dual-camera module on the back. The dual-lens setup noticeably protrudes on the same location as the previous iPhone cameras were. Early reports on the iPhone 8 have suggested that the new camera technology on the next-generation iPhone would complement the AR games Apple is bringing to its mobile devices.

The new leak claims that the iPhone 8 will measure 143.5 x 70.9 x 7.7mm at launch. If true, this could only mean that the upcoming handset will be slightly thicker than the 7.1mm iPhone 7 or the 7.3mm iPhone 7 Plus. It’s also a bit of a mystery as to where Apple placed the fingerprint scanner on the iPhone 8 because the leaked renders do not show the position of the sensors. Previous reports stated that Apple was having a hard time integrating Touch ID into the OLED display panel. JP Morgan analyst Gokul Hariharan recently revealed that the Cupertino giant still couldn’t decide if it’s going to place the fingerprint reader on the back or below the display.

Equity research firm CLSA has also given its two cents on the issue, saying Apple could be putting the fingerprint sensor on the back panel. It also pointed out that the Touch ID sensor could actually be embedded onto the Apple logo, which is actually not bad considering that the handset would go down in history as the 10th anniversary iPhone. 

Meanwhile, ValueWalk opined that the leaked CAD drawings from a factory could actually just be that of an iPhone 8 prototype. Tim Cook’s company is known for testing multiple prototypes before deciding on which one should move forward to be the final product. Thus, it is quite possible that the new renders belong to one of the prototypes. It remains to be seen whether the physical design showcased in the renders is the final one for the next flagship iPhone.
