At the moment it is anyone’s guess as to what the upcoming iPhone 8 (or iPhone Edition) will look like. However thanks to the folks at GearIndia and @OnLeaks, concept renders of the upcoming phone have been published. Note that these renders aren’t 100% official so take it with a grain of salt for now.

That being said, on the surface it seems that Apple has kept to the design of the previous iPhones. There are obviously some changes, such as how the back of the phone has a glossy glass covering it. However this seems to go against earlier rumors which suggested that the phone could end up looking more like the iPhone 4/4S, and in these renders it looks like they look more like the iPhone 6/6s/7.

However according to GearIndia, it seems that even @OnLeaks isn’t totally convinced that this is what the final iPhone will look like. Apple is said to be going through quite a few prototypes and it is unclear if these renders are that of the final design, or if they are just renders of one of the many prototypes that are being tested.

While they’re not exactly terrible to look at, the fact that they look too similar to the previous iPhones is probably not what Apple is going for. Either way take it with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys make of it?
