One of the more practical concerns about the iPhone 8, beyond its costs is how it’ll look. After all, it needs to fit in a pocket, right? Well, it looks like the iPhone 8, if new leaks are to be believed, will be a bit beefier than previous versions.
MacRumors found some molds posted to Twitter. They warn that the actual iPhones may be a bit smaller, as these may well be molds created to make cases. Still, using the 7 and the 7 Plus as size comparisons, this is roughly what you find:
While it’s not as gigantic as the iPhone 7S Plus, the iPhone 8 looks to be beefier. Particularly unusual is that a side view of the models seems to indicate that it’s also thicker than the iPhone 7S, almost as thick as the 7S Plus, which tends to lead to people griping since apparently there’s a part of the smartphone-buying public that won’t be happy until their phones are two-dimensional. That said, that thickness comes with more screen real estate, as the iPhone 8 will have an edge-to-edge OLED screen. So people will enjoy their phones a lot more. Still, if you were hoping for a super svelte new iPhone this September, for now, you might want to stick with some of the other models.
