One of the rumored design features of the upcoming iPhone 8 is that it will feature a glass rear panel. This is because if the rumors are true, Apple could be revisiting a familiar design in the iPhone 4/4S for the iPhone 8, in which the front and back will sport glass panels and it will also have an aluminum frame running around the device.

Thanks to a recent post on Slashleaks, a photo of the rear panel has been leaked, showing off the glass panel in the process. Of course it’s hard to say if this is the real deal especially since images and photos can be easily doctored these days, so obviously this needs to be taken with a grain of salt for now.

However the design of the rear panel is consistent with what we’ve been hearing and seeing so far, which is that the camera lenses have been repositioned to be on top of each other instead of side-by-side. Other than that, the Apple logo is the only thing which pretty much indicates that this is an iPhone.

In any case like we said, you should take this information with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys think? Are these really the rear panels of the upcoming iPhone 8?
