What catches the eye is the huge expansive display of the phone with no bezels in view. The phone has seriously massive screen and looks like Apple has completely done away with the bezels this time. Further, the photo reveals a notch at the top that houses the sensors, camera and the earpiece.The iPhone 8 is a very important phone for Apple considering that it will mark the ten years of the iPhone. The phone is expected to come in late September or early October and have been exposed to several rumours in the past. While the new image leaked by Blass reveals that the phone could come with radical edge-to-edge display, past rumours suggest that the phone could sport 5.8-inch 2.5D curved TrueTone OLED display. The dual rear cameras of the iPhone 8 could be aligned vertically.Another interesting bit about the latest leaked image of the iPhone 8 is absence of the home button and fingerprint sensor.
