So far we reckon that for the iPhone 8, Apple has actually done a pretty good job with preventing too many leaks. We’ve heard quite a few rumors, but in terms of leaked components and photos, we haven’t really seen that many to date. However a recent alleged schematic has surfaced which shows off a possible design for the phone.

It turns out that it is one of two possible designs that Apple is testing, or at least that’s according to a report from iDrop News. According to the report, they have received a tip from a Foxconn employee who claims that there are two prototypes in testing where one model has Touch ID embedded underneath the display, and one where Touch ID has been moved to the back which is what we saw in the schematic.

Designer Benjamin Geskin then cooked up the render which you can see above based on what the Foxconn employee allegedly told them. According to the employee, we’re talking about bezels around the phone measuring 4mm, 2.5D contoured glass on the front and back of the phone, a 5.8-inch OLED display, an “invisible” front-facing camera, and wireless charging.

Color us skeptical since it would be impossible to verify anything this alleged employee has said, so take it with a huge dose of salt for now. However what do you guys make of this render? If the iPhone 8 were to look like this, is it something you might be interested in or impressed by?
