After all, the iPhone design has essentially remained unchanged since Apple released the iPhone 6 back in 2014, which is to say that millions of iPhone owners have been patiently waiting for years for Apple to finally grace the iPhone with a bold new redesign.

As you can see in the image above, the front panel for the iPhone 8 looks to house a bezel-free display possibly measuring 5.8-inches.

A Reddit user named Kamikasky has posted front and back panel images of the iPhone 8, showing design iterations. Apart from the upper lip bezel for the front camera, speaker, and sensors, the bezels on the remaining three sides have been pushed back to give the front panel a almost bezel-less look. The camera cutout on the rear shows a marked departure from Apple's usual horizontal camera placement.

Leaks and speculations regarding the upcoming Apple iPhone 8 have been around for months now.

There is also a shot of the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus back panels, which doesn't really say much. Even this time around it's just the iPhone 7s Plus that will get the dual camera lens setup at the rear. Today, a new iPhone 8 leak shows some of the important parts of the smartphone, which required to make the metal frame of the mobile device.

The iPhone 8 is drawing closer. That, coupled with no spot for the sensor on the front of the handset, suggests Apple is indeed considering a fingerprint sensor baked directly into the display - a feature its competitors, including Samsung's Galaxy S8, don't offer.

The development process of Apple's iPhone 8 is nearing, reports have claimed. The iPhone 7S and 7S Plus are expected to have the same design as the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, except for the glass back.

Various reports, such as from ValueWalk, have claimed that Apple may only have a very few number of iPhone 8 units on hand after the September announcement. Intel is still working on modems with such high speeds.
