Appleâ€™s upcoming iPhone 8 has become the most anticipated release in recent memory, far surpassing the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 7. This secretive device has garnered much attention, causing the demand for iPhone 8 leaks and insider information to reach an all-time high. At this point in time, there are a few bits of insider information that are all-but-confirmed: the iPhone 8 will feature Appleâ€™s beastly A11 processor, wireless charging, a nearly edge-to-edge 5.8â€ OLED display, a vertical dual-lens camera system, and front facing cameras with 3D facial recognition capabilities.
Another piece of important information is the iPhone 8â€™s physical size, which has been rumored to be similarÂ to Appleâ€™s iPhone 7Â sinceÂ Ming-Chi Kuoâ€™s original prediction in 2016.Â New reports have provided us with dummy models and cases to compare the iPhone 8â€™s size to the iPhone 7; both of which corroborated earlier reports that the iPhone 8 will be slightly larger than its predecessor. And now, freshly leaked insider information seems to confirm that the iPhone 8 will in-fact be larger than the iPhone 7 in every way.
