IPhone 8, iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus Moulds Leaked in Images

Lack of 3.5mm audio jack

The Apple iPhone 8 is rumored to feature a sleek new redesign with an edge-to-edge screen display.

That's because the upcoming iPhone 8 could be the most expensive iPhone model yet and, as earlier rumors suggest, might cost over $1,000! The iPhone 8 has easily been the most anticipated smartphone of the year.

With all the speculation slowly gathering pace, we have found another piece of the 2017 iPhone puzzle in the form of an image showing moulds for three iPhone models. A new leak shows alleged molds of the upcoming iPhone 8, iPhone 7s, and the iPhone 7s Plus. In addition, only 5.15-inches of the iPhone 8 display is believed to be active; the rest is supposed to be used for a virtual Touch ID button that will be embedded in the display.

But what price are you willing to pay for all the groundbreaking features the iPhone 8 is promising? In the photos, the new iPhone seems smaller than iPhone 7S Plus but bigger than the 7S. One of the biggest reasons behind this hike being Apple's long-time supplier TPK Holdings is now charging them nearly 2x to 2.5x the price for the integration of 3D touch on the iPhone 8 display.




The latest leak, however, is a set of images claiming to be the first look at an iPhone 8 prototype.

Of course, we can pretty much expect to see the iPhone 8 be supply-constrained at launch, a September release date notwithstanding. Although not yet confirmed, this feature could be revolutionary for Apple, but it will also be costly.

After months of will-they-won't-they over whether Apple will embed the Touch ID fingerprint sensor into the display, or opt for the simpler route of fitting it to the back, like the Samsung Galaxy S8, we are now hearing it will indeed be on the screen. So, the current iPhone 7 Plus device sells for $969. After all, OLED panels are far more power efficient - and offer improvements to colour gamut and dynamic range - over conventional LCD displays.

While these by themselves add 100 dollars to the cost of an iPhone, the new wireless charging technology, the integration of TouchID into the display and the new design are all expected to add a substantial amount to the price of the iPhone 8. While this will undoubtedly be frustrating to many, it simply par for the course anytime Apple releases a new iPhone, and especially when Apple introduces a brand new iPhone design with incredibly advanced components.
