We are still several months away from the release of the iPhone 8, but that hasn’t stopped the rumours and leaks from flooding the internet.
Just hours after a CAD drawing was shared by Benjamin Geskin, the same source has provided iDrop News with insider information about the iPhone 8’s design.
According to this new report, the iPhone 8 will be substantially larger than the iPhone 7. Factory workers “with intimate knowledge of Apple’s latest device” claim that the iPhone 8’s dimensions come in at 143.59 x 70.94 x 7.57 mm compared to the iPhone 7’s 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm. If the leak is accurate, the iPhone 8 will be taller, wider and thicker than the iPhone 7.
Geskin mocked up the following image for iDrop News to demonstrate the size of the iPhone 8 in comparison to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus:
Geskin also mocked up an image with the supposed iPhone 8 design sitting in between the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+:
Although we can’t confirm or deny this data ourselves, a slightly larger iPhone 8 would certainly fit in with the other leaked images and reports we’ve seen in past few weeks.
