Two new videos posted on Weibo and tech leak aggregation site Slashleaks show what seem to be Foxconn workers cleaning up and looking over rear shells of Apple’s upcoming tenth anniversary iPhone.
We cannot be sure that the device being built is, in fact, Apple’s next iPhone. The devices coming out of Cupertino have long been used as inspiration for virtually identical clones, and what we see in these clips may simply be yet another one of those.
Most of the changes from older iPhone models will reportedly happen on the front of the device, where Apple is set to maximise the use of space to accommodate a large 5.8-inch display inside a shell that’s smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus’, which currently uses a 5.5″ screen.
The most apparent change on the back will purportedly be the positioning of the dual camera setup, which is moving to a vertically aligned position from the horizontal one of the iPhone 7 Plus. If these videos are to be believed, the shells of the devices being built might belong to future iPhone 8 units.
