Is this the case for the iPhone 8? Images show glass & stainless steel dummy casing

These might be the first images of the casing for the forthcoming iPhone 8. New photos posted to Twitter are describe a casing that’s a “CNC model according to Foxconn,” showing a glass chassis with stainless steel rim.

Also visible is a space for a new vertical camera system, which sits vertically on the back as opposed to the iPhone 7 Plus’ currently horizontal positioning.

It’s hard to tell whether there will be much of a bezel and if the edge-to-edge display rumors come true until we see a device with the internals capable of powering on, but it’s indicated that bezels are minimal.

The case also doesn’t feature a TouchID home button, suggesting this is a case that will utilize fingerprint technology within the screen. But as previously reported, it’s likely this isn’t the only prototype case in circulation considering Apple’s difficulties in putting an iPhone into production with the built-in technology.

The images of the cases were first tweeted by Benjamin Geskin

Geskin goes on to tweet that it “matches all previous information.” He says: “iPhone 8: All-screen front. 4mm bezels. Dual front cameras, vertical rear cameras. Front & back 2.5D curved glass. Metal frame.”
