New video shows a mock up of the iPhone 8 in all its glory
You know we’ve reached peak iPhone rumors when actual videos of the device start circulating on the internet.
True, this latest video, shared by prominent leaker Benjamin Geskin, is of a “dummy model,” meaning it has the looks of the iPhone 8 but is empty inside (just like our souls after nearly a year of iPhone rumors). Still, if the device in the video is genuine, it gives us a really good idea of what the upcoming iPhone will look like.
Keep in mind that what we see in the video is the most interesting of the three upcoming new iPhones, likely to be called iPhone 8 or iPhone X. It’s encased in glass on both sides, and its 5.8-inch screen takes up basically the entire front side of the device. It also has a vertical dual camera on the back, unlike the upcoming iPhone 7S Plus, which will be more of a continuation of the current model (see here).

The stainless steel frame of the device in the video is silver, but Geskin previously said that the finalized version of the device will have a black frame, matching the black glass on the front and back. Below you can see some new photos of the device, shared by Geskin late on Tuesday.
The same leaker recently posted a set of photos that allegedly show the moulds used to make all three new iPhone models the iPhone 7S, the iPhone 7S Plus and the iPhone 8.
While we’re still deep in rumor territory, and none of this information is even close to official, the reports about Apple’s upcoming iPhone do seem quite aligned at this point. The best news is that the iPhone 8’s final design appears to have an under-the-glass fingerprint sensor, a standout feature compared to other flagship phones.
