iPhone 8 is said to come in three colors—Black, Silver and Gold—and The Loop’s Dave Mark today was forwarded interesting images of some dummy units originally received by Ben Miller, who works for a publisher that owns a site that sells iPhone repair kits.

As you can see for yourself, the dummy unit has a copper-like colorway that was previously disclosed by leak aggregator SlashLeaks (Apple may call this finish Champagne Gold).

The image top of post compares an iPhone 7 Plus, at left, to an iPhone 8 dummy, at right.

Most of the rumors point to a single-size iPhone 8 model, which isn’t surprising given its large screen real estate afforded by the removal of the top and bottom “chin” and minimal bezels. This has apparently allowed Apple’s designers to squeeze a 5.8-inch OLED display into a device roughly the size of 4.7-inch iPhones.

Again, this is a design dummy created based on alleged specifications that have been supposedly “confirmed” by purported schematics and CAD models.

Could this be what Apple’s tenth-anniversary handset will look like?

Let us know in the comments!

    In my opinion, it’s about time Apple made a big enough change to make an upgrade worthwhile. Forcetouch and a better camera are nice but a true design upgrade will be sweet.

      dont talk like that here mike they hang people who have valid opinions

      Eeek Mike be careful with opinions bro. Its not tolerated. You might offend somebody. We must be uniform in our thinking to appease to everybody.

      • M_Hawke

        I’m sorry, but what you said just offended me.

  • iBanks

    I likey.

  • Rob Mincey

    If that’s the form factor, count me in. I’ve got small hands for a guy and the 6+ and 7+ have been too big for me to use comfortably. More screen real estate and less physical size? Yes, please.

  • n0ahcruz3

    Apple should just put black front glass on everything to hide that cut out. Definitely gonna get a black one

  • nova12

    this is probably going to be an unpopular opinion, but I think it’s ugly. not to say I won’t get it, but initial impression is not great.

    • Greg

      I agree. I’ll buy it too but Steve J would have thrown the idea out. They are stuck on this push to make the whole phone the screen like Samsung and it looks unfinished like its missing its cover or something…

      • I’d wait until they show the UI changes, the top sensor bar is most likely going to blend into the status bar.

  • nonchalont

    Nice phone. I’d say that’s about right on the design. I’m sure the top portion will be black though to match screen color and make it look like one whole screen.

  • Jay

    With the screen the size of a plus in a form factor of the iPhone 6 then definitely count me in.

  • I can see the practicality in the premise behind the screen (Plus sized screen, Regular sized form factor), but I strongly believe the execution is poor. I’m an Apple fan, always have an always will be, but Samsung nailed the full screen phone. That small white bezel is BEYOND unappealing visually. And I’m assuming they’re releasing 3 models because they’re aware of that. The black will definitely look better and more uniform but the fact that there is a bezel and the competition has none (on the left and right sides), means either Apple is still pocketing innovation or just don’t care enough right now to meet the competition because they’re making enough as a whole (Samsung still holds the #1 spot in the smartphone market share).

      I agree completely. I think as long as Apple keeps making tons of money they won’t really care and continue to come out with mediocre upgrades. It’s sad to think that they only care about the money but that’s business. I just hope many other Apple users will soon realize that Apple continues to disappoint and then maybe just maybe, if the profits drop, Apple will finally care enough to come out with a decent upgrade.

        How So this looks better and bigger aspects ratio than s8 (if I change the edge white to black)

      • FlaggyDiggler

        That cutout at the top is ugly as shît!

  • The Zlatan

    Looks like the design of a 4-year-old..

    • David Dablo

      The iPhone 6 is only like 3 years old.

      • javierE186

        That’s not what he means. He means that a four-year-old designed the phone.

      • David Dablo

        Ik lmao. The design is great. I think what he should’ve said was that the color looks like it was mixed by a four-year-old.

  • Mr_Coldharbour

    I think it looks terrible in my opinion. I confused it for a HTC or some Chinese Android manufacturer phone. If that’s what it looks like, I’ll just grab the 7 Plus if and when it goes on discount and if and when my 6S Plus bites the dust.

  • Patrick Richardson

    If that’s the color it’s could be, it should have a crap pile EMOJI on the back as well.

  • OneBigInFiniteJoinT
  • pnh

    Or is this what iPhone 8 will look like? Generally keeping the same form factor but going for a slightly retro look. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/304c596688ae1bcc2fa6a82629d0bfa3d9d04629a1e883f15fdc388dc7aa09ac.jpg

    Looking at it from right to left.
    The very right is the FaceTime camera
    The next one to FaceTime camera is the ambient sensor
    That leaves me wondering what the other two is. Pearl ID? And for notification infrared that shoots to your eye?

  • Gregory D Foster

    That’s just ugly.

    • Julio Hernandez

      The shit brown “gold” color is ugly. The design has grown on me and I like it but I really hope they don’t give it a white bezel.

      • Gregory D Foster

        That cut out did me in. It’s a horrible design for an “edge to edge” screen for a phone. Hideous

  • Benedict

    Now you really see how ridiculous big those bezels were from the previous iPhone models. Compared to this and other modern phones, an iPhone looks like a 50$ budget phone..

  • Jmmso

    So ugly this brown dummy. If iPhone will look like this, I definitely won’t buy it. I would rather get iPhone 7 Plus.

    • David Dablo

      They’ll be more colors: Silver, Gold, and Copper/Champagne/Trash Gold.
