We’re just a few weeks away from Apple’s keynote in September where the tech giant will unveil the much-anticipated anniversary edition iPhone 8. A lot has been leaked about the handset over the past few weeks. Now, a new set of leaked photos are doing rounds on the web revealing key details about the next-gen iPhone.
These photos were posted on Chinese forum Weibo which apparently reveal slides of an internal Apple presentation of the upcoming iPhone 8 for its employees in China. To begin with, the latest leaked photos confirm some of the features we already know that might feature in the upcoming iPhone 8, which include wireless charging, facial recognition, as well as support for AR.
It’s also worth noting that the handset shown in these slides looks rather similar to what’ve seen in past leaks. For instance, the back of the device does not reveal a fingerprint sensor, implying that Apple has either integrated the fingerprint sensor within the display itself, or the company may have decided to ditch the feature entirely.
Elsewhere, the leaked slides also indicate the start of sales of the upcoming iPhone 8. Going by the slides, the handset could go on sale sometime around September 17. That being said, it’s still unclear if this is date when pre-orders go live or when the device actually arrives in stores. You can check out these leaked slides by clicking the source link below.
However, it goes without saying that readers should take this information with a huge grain of salt, as nothing is official at the moment.
Though what we do know is the fact that the iPhone 8 will be quite different from past iPhones, both in terms of features and design. The handset is expected to come with a glass body and edge-to-edge OLED display, ditching away the Home button and perhaps replacing the Touch ID with a new facial recognition system.
Apple is expected to announce three iPhone models this year. The special edition iPhone 8 will be announced at the company’s keynote in September alongside the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. However, the iPhone 8 is expected to go on sale sometime later compared to the other two models as Apple is reportedly facing supply issues for OLED screens.
