The images show that the device came in the box with an iPhone 7 screen protector applied to its display. What’s more interesting than that is a blue “passport” we can clearly see in the box.
It does have minimal bezels, at least, which would stay right in line with all those previous rumors and expectations. It doesn’t look like a copy of the Galaxy S8 from Samsung, either, which is another positive going for it. This design actually just looks a lot like an iPhone, with the standard bezels reduced a great deal. So instead of having the display on either side of the front-facing camera and other sensors, it stops just short of them.
According to Australian leakster Sonny Dickson:
Each component or product that is tested they document in the page. The person writes their initials next to it and any notes about it passing or failing or any other comments. It makes its way through each test and person. It then is finally sent with its ‘passport’ from China to Apple.Is this a real iPhone 8 prototype? And if so, does it represent the device we’re going to see this fall or one of the designs that Apple has ultimately abandoned?
