The iPhone 8 back panel also contains regulatory information.

Apple iPhone 8 has been previously leaked on several occasions as well. iDrop News recently put out live images of iPhone 8 running iOS 11, which is slated to release this fall. Consequently, many analysts believe that the iPhone 8 will help anchor the most significant iPhone refresh in history. Apple will reportedly be sourcing at least 70 million OLED screens from Samsung Display this year, which means roughly 10 million units per month.

The images were first shared on a Reddit thread.

Where's The Touch ID Sensor?

Apple iPhone 8 will have a glass back, and there's no cut out for fingerprint sensor either on front or back cover, suggesting it will be embedded in to the display. Check out all of the new images by clicking on the slideshow below. The Reddit user says the Chinese manufacturers received the panels the week commencing 5 June.

In an earlier post, we reported that the metal frame allegedly belonging to that of the iPhone 8 had leaked, and now thanks to another post on Reddit, more images have surfaced that allegedly show off the front and back panels belonging to the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 8, and it also seems that there was a surprise feature revealed.

Surprisingly, these iPhone 8 design images lack any sign of a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Additionally, the front display includes two flaps on the top that flank the earpiece. And the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, of course. The Redditor claimed that, just like iPhone 8, the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus back panels are made out of glass to support wireless charging. Both the panels confirm the rumors the surrounding the highly anticipated iPhone 8 (aka iPhone X).

The design of the iPhones has remained nearly the same since the time iPhone 6 was launched in 2014. In fact, suppliers are now working on components that will fit into the best 2017 Apple iPhone.
