iPhone 8 Leaks Confirm a Bigger Phone
The iPhone 8 leaks suggest the phone have a larger screen. The previous iPhone 7 had dimensions of 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm. The new iPhone 8 leaks suggest the dimensions to be around 143.59 x 70.94 x 7.57 mm. It means we will have an iPhone 8 bigger in all dimensions (Length, Width, & Height).

If Apple is planning to increase the display of iPhone 8, wonder the type of display we will see for the iPhone 9.
iPhone 8 Leaks Suggest Bezel-less Design
The competition between Samsung and Apple smartphone intensifies with each passing day. Earlier we saw a bezel-less design for the Samsung Galaxy S8. The new Apple iPhone 8 leaks suggest a bezel-less design too. It also means that Apple may be looking to launch an iPhone 8 with a wrap-around display. The OLED technology’s ability to support curved screens makes bezel-less designs more of a possibility.
Rear Fingerprint Scanner
There is no certainty in the new iPhone 8 leaks if there will be a rear fingerprint scanner or not. Earlier rumors suggested that the new iPhone 8 will have a rear fingerprint scanner. However, some new leaks indicate that Apple may not add rear fingerprint scanner.
Many smartphone users do not like a rear fingerprint scanner as it clutters with their phone usage experience. Some other leaks suggest that Apple may integrate the fingerprint scanner onto the screen. If that rumor becomes real, it will be interesting to see how that would impact the touch screen.
Vertical Dual Lens Camera

Expected Variants of the iPhone 8
The iPhone 8 leaks also suggest that Apple plans to launch the phone in three different sizes. The new iPhone will reportedly come in sizes of 4.7 inches, 5.5 inches, and 5.8 inches. Apple understands the industry well and the various profitable segments it offers. Apple will try to cash in on all of these segments by providing different variants of the iPhone 8.
Notable Upgrades to the iPhone 8 and Price Range
