Time to upgrade? A few predictions about the iPhone 8’s new look

Although we are still months away from being able to get our hands on the iPhone 8, leaks continue to come in thick and fast, much to Apple’s chagrin.

The latest leaks include pics and video of an alleged iPhone 8 dummy unit from Israeli tech journalist Shai Mizrachi.

Mizrachi shared his find with 9 to 5 Mac, which in turn posted the video to YouTube. In the video, Mizrachi turns the dummy unit over in this hands and then compares it with an iPhone 7.

The video confirms the persistent rumour that the 8 will have a bezel-less 5.8-inch screen.

Other leaks have suggested that the new phone will have stronger waterproofing, an upgraded camera with AR features and wireless charging.

Another leak has come by way of UK retailer MobileFun. 9 to 5 Mac reports that case manufacturer Olixar has already made an entire line of iPhone 8 cases for MobileFun which also confirm the newly shaped camera and bezel-less look.

It is also predicted that the iPhone 8 will be pricey (between $1100 and $1500 AUD), so if you want one you’d better start saving now. Remember the wise words of Tim Gurner. No more smashed avo for brekky until the September release, OK?
