These days, Australian leakster Sonny Dickson tweeted out a picture of what seems to be a technical drawing for an aluminum iPhone 8 prototype (may just it as an alternative be an iPhone 7s prototype?) that presentations vertically aligned twin cameras and a fingerprint sensor on the bottom.
Bloomberg’s other folks acquainted with the topic detailed no less than 3 other iPhone prototypes that Apple is assumed to have examined with production companions in Asia:
- Prototype #1: Flat OLED display and the duvet glass that curves right into a metal body. Design conceptually equivalent to iPhone 4 with symmetrical, somewhat curved glass on the entrance/again and the curves equivalent in form to the ones on the entrance of iPhone 7. “An previous prototype design had a thinner metal band, leaving extra noticeable curved glass on the facets,“ reads the article.
- Prototype #2: The similar relatively curved entrance and metal body like Prototype #1 with a tumbler again having “extra dramatic curves” on the most sensible and backside akin to the unique iPhone design from 2007.
- Prototype #3: Principally a tweaked Prototype #2, most effective quite greater, with a more effective design with an aluminum again fairly than a tumbler one. That is Apple’s fallback tool as a result of providers have thus far “struggled to reliably produce closely curved glass in mass amounts.”
