Images claim to show iPhone 8 prototype with glass back, vertical camera

A man best known for creating phone renderings based on rumors and leaks has posted a series of photos on Twitter that he says show one prototype of the new iPhone 8. Benjamin Geskin said the device—photographed by someone behind the wheel of a BMW—are of a CNC model from Foxconn. When questioned in the Twitter thread, Geskin claimed a friend sent him the images of the device, which lacks a home button and features an edge-to-edge screen, a vertical dual camera, a lengthened power button and a glass front and back with a metal band around the edge. Wihile the phone doesn’t include the fingerprint scanner on the back that some other rumors and leaked renderings have shown, the device’s appearance is in keeping with some of the most prominent rumors presently circulating—even though it lacks any identifying marks that would peg it as coming from Apple. But given that Apple is said to still be undecided on its final model, it’s possible that even if the device is genuine, it still may not be the final model that the company is expected to mass produce later this year.
