If Apple is indeed planning on launching new iPhones later this year, presumably around the September mark, it means that by now Apple should be finalizing things like design and also starting to get ready for production. While full production probably won’t kick off so soon, we’re sure that they are at least getting ready.

So much so that we wouldn’t be surprised if production molds have already been made. In fact thanks to a recent post on Slashleaks (via AppleInsider), alleged iPhone molds have been caught on camera in which they apparently belong to the iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, and the 8. As you can see in the photo above, the iPhone 7s Plus is pictured to the far left, while the 7s is pictured to the right right, with the iPhone 8 pictured in the middle.

For those who are a little surprised at how “small” the iPhone 8 is, the rumors are saying that the handset will allegedly feature a form factor similar to that of the 4.7-inch iPhone, except that it will sport a larger display thanks to the claims that it will feature thinner bezels and an edge-to-edge display.

The camera design/layout appears to be in line with what we’ve seen so far, so no surprises there, although we are curious as to why Apple isn’t applying that same design to the iPhone 7s Plus’ dual cameras? In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but unless something changes, it seems that we pretty much know what to expect in terms of design for the iPhone 8 now.
