Alleged ‘iPhone 8’ Dummy Units Widely Seen at IFA in Berlin [PICS]


IFA Berlin is a large consumer electronics show in Germany, which takes place from September 1-6 this year. Earlier today we heard about how Apple’s next ‘iPhone 8’ could actually be called ‘iPhone Edition’, and now according to French site Mac Generation, numerous booths at the trade show have ‘iPhone 8’ dummy units on display, ahead of Apple’s big iPhone reveal.

While the dummy unit is nothing new (we’ve seen black, white and ‘copper’ already), what makes the following image interesting is the colour, which doesn’t resemble the previous ‘copper gold’ (or whatever you want to call it) seen in previous alleged leaks.

Again, I’m with you in saying a white-faced front bezel looks odd, as it emphasizes the display ‘notch’ and the left and right ‘ears’. Black on black hides this much better.

Apple is expected to launch three new iPhone models, a cellular Apple Watch and 4K Apple TV at its September 12th special event. iPhone 8 is said to start at nearly $1000 USD, which translates into one billion (*Dr. Evil voice*) Canadian dollars.

    The camera lens really sticks out on that photo (if real).

    I never understood the hate the protruding lens gets. Majority of people use a case so the fact that it protrudes is moot. Plus it’s not like Apple is the only company that does this.

    I don’t think they’ll do a white notch for three reasons.

    1. Obviously it’s not that appealing to look at.

    2. All the MacBooks have a black bezel despite different colour cases.

    3. It will cost less to make one colour for all.

    But I could be wrong.
