This is how a metal and glass iPhone 8 dummy unit compares to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus (AAPL)

iPhone 8 v 7 Plus — hero

The owner of YouTube channel EverythingApplePro got ahold of an incredibly detailed dummy unit of what is believed to be Apple’s special tenth anniversary iPhone, simply called “iPhone 8.”

In a recent video he showed what the device should look like and compared it against Apple’s current top-of-the-line devices, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

If the dummy is legitimate — as the youtuber claims — the iPhone 8 should pack a 5.8″ display (bigger than the iPhone 7 Plus’ 5.5″ screen) in a shell that’s roughly the size of the iPhone 7, with just a few added millimeters in width and thickness.

EverythingApplePro’s Filip measures the iPhone 8 dummy — which this time is actually made of steel and glass, as the rumours suggest — at 7.24mm, as opposed to the iPhone 7’s 7.09mm and 7 Plus’ 7.14.

The iPhone 8 dummy also features a protruding camera, similar to the iPhone 7 Plus, but this time its layout is vertical — another thing the rumours have pointed towards.

The protrusion itself is less pronounced than that of the iPhone 7 Plus: the current flagship is 8.84mm thick when the camera bulge is included, while the iPhone 8 dummy tops at 8.72mm.

EverythingApplePro also shows a screen protector that wraps the phone’s front all around the edge, leaving just a small cutout at the top (the one KGI analysts have called the “notch”), which would corroborate previous leaks too.
