Highly Detailed ‘iPhone 8’ CAD Renders Leaked, Points to Glass Back and Wireless Charging


Engadget has posted highly detailed CAD renders of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8. The renders confirm the rumours of the new dual camera’s orientation.

The report notes that the back of the device will be covered in glass, which will allow for integration of wireless charging. This is supposedly verified by the images the chassis’ underside, however, Engadget was not at liberty to disclose these images.

One source claims that both screen sizes will be getting bumped up. The 4.7-inch version will be increased to 5 inches, while the 5.5-inch version will be bumped up to 5.8 inches. While these rumours do not confirm an edge-to-edge display, the CAD measurements show a slightly taller, wider, and thicker device when compared to the current iPhone 7.

    I’ll wait for the 8S. It likely will have less bugs or issues compared to the 8.

    Great minds think alike

    A bump to a 5 inch screen would be great, been waiting for this!

    It really bothers me when they use phrases like:
    “the renders confirm the rumours”
    “supposedly verified by the images”
    Uh… No.
    The images doesn’t confirm or verify anything, when they are created FROM rumours.

    It bothers me even more when some people takes it too seriously, as if the images are official.

    Amen for the size bump. I feel like my 6s is getting small and was looking forward the 7plus, but 5inch would be perfect for me at this time.

    These images were not created from rumours. The CAD file was leaked to Engadget by one of their reliable sources.
    Sure, it doesn’t prove the authenticity of the CAD file, and these renders should still be taken with a grain of salt, but Engadget does not consider them fan-made renders fabricated by whatever info was rumoured about the phone.

    Personally I can’t stand the camera bump in this rendering. Hopefully look a little better in the real deal.
