We know almost everything about Apple’s substantially redesigned iPhone 8: the massive, elongated display, wireless charging, vertically aligned dual camera and price increase. And now new sources are rubber stamping these details one by one…
The latest to spoil Apple’s iPhone surprises are luxury iPhone case maker Nodus and popular YouTuber EverythingApplePro.
The former contacted me directly through Nodus co-founder Jack Spencer. Much like prolific case maker and smartphone leaker Olixar, Spencer said Nodus received CAD models from its supply chain which it believes “accurately depicts” the iPhone 8.
In fact Nodus is so confident in the information received, it (like Olixar) is already manufacturing its range of iPhone 8 cases. The image below shows the Nodus ‘Shell Case and Micro Dock’ (a magnetic case and dock combo) which ties in perfectly with the major leaks we have seen.
Like the unit shown off by famed leaker OnLeaks on Thursday (though from a different source), it sports the same 5.8-inch display, “missing” home button (Touch ID will be integrated into the display, unlike some) and those now-familiar AR optimised vertical dual rear cameras.
In fact all we can’t verify at this stage are the exact iPhone 8 build materials, widely tipped OLED display (with its much increased resolution) and a working version of iOS 11 showing off the all new bottom based Function Area.
In fact I was so confident in the sources I spoke to that last week I called it saying: This is the iPhone 8 – and I’m doubly sure now.
Furthermore with iPhone owners desperate for such innovation following three generations of visually identical handsets, I doubt there’s anything Samsung’s redesigned Galaxy Note 8 and Google’s enlarged Pixel 2 can do to stop it.
Yes, the iPhone 8 is going to break sales records. Even with that new eye watering price tag…
