Just last week, a series of leaks concerning the specifications of the upcoming iPhone 8, along with a supposed design shocked everyone. The design was the biggest problem for many because it looked problematic and overall uninspired. There have been rumors that Apple is having trouble with its fingerprint sensor placed inside the display of the phone. Apart from this, one of the biggest concerns was the placement of the fingerprint on the bag of the device, as an emergency measure from the company. It would be very weird that after the complaints Samsung received about this issue, Apple would choose to repeat it.
Leaks that disappointed many
The leaks disappointed almost everyone who saw them. Fortunately, more recent leaks suggest that the design Apple choose for the upcoming iPhone 8 will not resemble that form the initial leaks. More importantly, the company will not move the fingerprint sensor to the back of the device. According to a Monday leak, the phone will not look like the first series of leaks suggested. Still, experts might be glad, but nobody can now precisely if the new information will indeed turn out to be true and final. An unknown source from China made public the schematics for the phone and they show the internal parts of the upcoming iPhone 8.
It is worth noting that the schematics show a Touch ID hardware near the bottom of the device. So, it seems like Apple finally managed to solve the issue and will not move the fingerprint sensor to the back of the phone. Graphic designer Benjamin Geskin made an effort and created some renders from the information we already have, combined with the new schematics. Rumor has it that the iPhone 8 will have a glass back and front, stainless steel sides and even a dual camera system. Geskin posted a Twitter message to which he added his renders.

The upcoming iPhone 8
All in all, everybody is eagerly waiting for the new iPhone from Apple. Especially after Samsung came back in full force with its Galaxy S8 phone. It is really one of the best on the market right now. We will see whether or not the real phone will look close to the renders Benjamin Geskin has created.
