This is how a metal and glass iPhone 8 dummy unit compares to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus

IPhone 8 v 7 Plus -- heroEverythingApplePro/YouTubeThe alleged iPhone 8 dummy compared to an iPhone 7 Plus.

The owner of YouTube channel EverythingApplePro got ahold of an incredibly detailed dummy unit of what is believed to be Apple’s special tenth anniversary iPhone, simply called “iPhone 8.”

In a recent video he showed what the device should look like and compared it against Apple’s current top-of-the-line devices, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

If the dummy is legitimate — as the youtuber claims — the iPhone 8 should pack a 5.8″ display (bigger than the iPhone 7 Plus’ 5.5″ screen) in a shell that’s roughly the size of the iPhone 7, with just a few added millimetres in width and thickness.

EverythingApplePro’s Filip measures the iPhone 8 dummy — which this time is actually made of steel and glass, as the rumours suggest — at 7.24mm, as opposed to the iPhone 7’s 7.09mm and 7 Plus’ 7.14.

The iPhone 8 dummy also features a protruding camera, similar to the iPhone 7 Plus, but this time its layout is vertical — another thing the rumours have pointed towards.

IPhone 8 v 7 Plus -- camerasEverythingApplePro/YouTubeAll the rumours and leaks have so far pointed towards a new vertical layout for the iPhone 8’s dual camera.

The protrusion itself is less pronounced than that of the iPhone 7 Plus: the current flagship is 8.84mm thick when the camera bulge is included, while the iPhone 8 dummy tops at 8.72mm.

EverythingApplePro also shows a screen protector that wraps the phone’s front all around the edge, leaving just a small cutout at the top (the one KGI analysts have called the “notch”), which would corroborate previous leaks too.
