New Apple iPhone 8 renders reveal a large power button that could host the fingerprint sensor

A new series of renders obtained by Forbessheds some light on how the next generation of Apple's iPhone is going to look on it's 10-year anniversary. There have been numerous different renders, leaks and speculation surrounding the iPhone and everyone of them has come up with something more-or-less the same, including this latest renders from Forbes.

Working with case designer Nodus, Forbes was able to get their hands, through the supply chain, on CAD files for the iPhone 8. The render is in line with the speculations surrounding a giant 5.8 inch bezel-less display, with a cutout at the top for the front shooter and sensors. This might mean that the notifications jump to a new 'function' area' in the iOS11.

The backside of the renders revealed that Apple will be aligning the dual-camera setup vertically so that they may progress on pushing forward augmented reality, which is more easier to use in portrait mode rather than landscape.

Forbes also confirms that there will be no switch to Type-C cables and the lightening port will be remaining where it is and neither will the 3.5 mm headphone jack return.

There is considerable doubt on where exactly Apple will be placing the fingerprint sensor. The CAD designs do not indicate a sensor on the back, and it is unclear if Apple will be using an under display fingerprint sensor. Apple can also go the Sony route and integrate the unusually large power button with the fingerprint sensor. Other details such as the hardware of the phone, battery, camera specifications etc remain unknown, but one thing has been confirmed and that is that the iPhone 8 will be the most expensive iPhone till date.
