The 10th anniversary iPhone will be released this year and it’s shaping up to be a big update. Predictions so far include a glass and stainless steel redesign with a bezel-less OLED display, a new in-display Touch ID paired with facial recognition, updates to 3D Touch, improved waterproofing, wireless charging, and more.

Several iPhone 8 related leaks surfaced over the weekend, backing up a radical new chassis design first seen in April. The new schematics include the various characteristics we’ve seen reported for the OLED iPhone in the past including the elongated power button, vertical dual camera  and lack of a physical home button.

Most notably, an orange outline traces the purported screen area of the iPhone 8. Based on this schematic, the screen will be effectively bezel-less on left, right and bottom sides whilst the top edge will cut inwards to accommodate the front camera, earpiece and sensors.

A new report from Economic Daily News, via Digitimes, indicates that the iPhone 8 will use a new optical fingerprint sensor technology to enable users to place their fingers directly on the OLED display and have the phone scan the print, as an elegant replacement for the existing Touch ID home button.

The screen ratio will change from 16:9 on iPhone 7 to 18.5:9 (corroborating many other sources) and ‘invisible’ Infrared sensors will unlock enhanced camera and augmented reality features. Apparently, TSMC discussed these upcoming flagship iPhone features at a Taipei symposium.

Last month we saw what may be the closest thing so far to the iPhone 8 design expected to be introduced later this year, and today what appears to be the same dummy unit has surfaced again in a hands-on video. The dummy unit shows off the edge-to-edge 5.8-inch display and taller body rumored for the iPhone 8, although this particular unit appears to have a little heft to it too.
