Leaked videos show factory employees working on what could be the iPhone 8

iPhone 8 v 7 Plus - cameras


The iPhone 7 Plus (in red) uses a dual camera setup that's aligned perpendicularly to the phone; the "iPhone 8" (black), on the other hand, seems to have one that sits vertically alongside it.

Two new videos posted on Weibo and tech leak aggregation site Slashleaks show what could be Foxconn workers cleaning up and looking over rear shells of Apple's upcoming tenth anniversary iPhone.

We cannot be sure that the device being built is, in fact, Apple's next iPhone. The devices coming out of Cupertino have long been used as inspiration for virtually identical clones, and what we see in these clips may simply be yet another one of those.

The so-called "iPhone 8" is supposed to be the third device in this year's iPhone lineup, accompanying the "iPhone 7s" and "iPhone 7s Plus" to celebrate the landmark moment.Advertisement

Most of the changes from older iPhone models will reportedly happen on the front of the device, where Apple is set to maximize the use of space to accommodate a large 5.8-inch display inside a shell that's smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus', which currently uses a 5.5" screen.

The most apparent change on the back will purportedly be the positioning of the dual camera setup, which is moving to a vertically aligned position from the horizontal one of the iPhone 7 Plus. If these videos are to be believed, the shells of the devices being built might belong to future iPhone 8 units.

The phone shells pictured here clearly show a design outline that's reminiscent of all the iPhone 8 leaks we have seen so far.
