The Apple iPhone 8 compared with the Galaxy S8 and S8+, whose measurements are148.9 x 68.1 x 8.0mm and 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1mm respectively appears to be smaller than the two. Taken together, the above dimensions suggest Apple's redesigned handset will be slightly thicker than the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 but not as thick as the Galaxy S8.

The iconic iPhone home button is expected to not be visible on the front face of the device but embedded into the bottom area of the display. Other rumours point out that it will be placed at the back of the phone. Apple suppliers TSMC confirmed Apple had successfully integrated Touch ID fingerprint recognition into the OLED display. According to the sources the back will feature a vertical dual camera setup.
