Last night, prolific smartphone leakster Benjamin Geskin published an image on his Twitter, reportedly obtained from a Foxconn source, which he claims represents a screen frame holding the iPhone 8’s OLED display and rumored glass sandwich design together.

The leaked screen bracket lacks any Home button placement because iPhone 8 is widely expected to adopt a virtual Home button in a so-called function area at the screen bottom.

The presumed iPhone 8 part has a large circular cutout at the top.

The cutout could house additional ambient light sensors to make the OLED display of iPhone 8 True Tone-capable or it could be for a rumored 3D sensor for advanced facial recognition, improved selfie quality, 3D mapping and other features.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, iPhone 8 will feature “the highest screen-to-body ratio of any smartphone currently available worldwide” and no in-screen Touch ID.

Corners just don’t look right to me—they’re too rounded and radius is too small, looking more like Samsung than Apple design. I think this is a Note 8 bracket, but that’s just me.

    I agree Christian, doesn’t look right to me either.

      I think it does. The bottom has the two screws that would hold to display assembly to the rear housing. The bezel is thin and the single hole is far enough over the fit another sensor next to and on the oppsosing side.. they are probably using another type of plastic for the other cameras/sensors like they have on just about all previous models(clear plastic)…

    Yep Apple ordered 80 million 2k OLED Screens from Samsung.
    Funny Apple finally finally ditches the antiquated LCD and follows Samsung Technology

    It would be interesting to know the dimensions of this, as you maybe able to work out if there is still space for a home button. I know there is all talk of in screen but dimensions would help add clarity to rumours.
