Apple iPhone 8 concept video shows how the device may look like.

Recently, some images and renders of Apple’s long-rumoured iPhone 8 (also likely to be called ‘iPhone Edition’) leaked online. And now, a concept video uploaded by a YouTube user has given a realistic look at what the final product may look like.

Uploaded by a user going by the name ‘ConceptsiPhone’, the video shows the supposed iPhone 8’s front panel. It appears completely filled by a bezel-less display, something that has been rumoured for quite a while. A dual rear camera setup (with LED flash) is also visible, arranged horizontally as is the case with iPhone 7 Plus.

For what it’s worth, the video hints that the smartphone may have a vertically aligned dual rear camera setup. This means that the smartphone will better recognise foreground and background. Which will be particularly useful when placed horizontally in a VR headset.

As is always the case, the video shows the alleged ‘iPhone Edition’ with a polished Black and White metal body. There is also the standard speaker grille and USB port at the bottom. As for the front-facing camera, it’s under the display. Interestingly, the speaker grilles are visible both on top and bottom sides, something that’s not likely to happen.

No matter how enticing the concept ‘iPhone Edition’ looks in the video, we may have to wait a little extra to get our hands on it. Confirming recent reports that Apple will delay the launch of iPhone 8 (also tipped to be called ‘iPhone Edition’), noted KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple’s upcoming flagship will indeed be hitting the shelves late this year.

As mentioned in a report by 9to5Mac website, Kuo says that the new iPhone (rumoured to have an OLED display) will arrive sometime between October-November, instead of the usual August-September timeframe. The reason for the delay is said to be a shortage of supplies that Apple has custom-ordered for the new smartphone.
