Over the past couple of weeks, we have been seeing a ton of leaks about the upcoming Apple iPhone 8. Yesterday we saw some of the leaked render images of the same where to saw the vertical camera sensor setup at the back. And today, we have some new reports which give us an idea on how big the iPhone 8 will be and what we should expect in terms of the size.
According to the new reports which we have, it looks like the upcoming iPhone 8 will indeed be larger than the iPhone 7 which we have in the market right now. A new leak from the source confirms that the iPhone 8 will measure 143.59 x 70.94 x 7.57 mm in dimensions. This is much higher than the dimensions of the iPhone 7. The iPhone 7 measures 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm which means that it has a smaller chassis overall. The iPhone 8 will not only be taller, it will wider as well as thicker as well. Based on this measurements, we now have a few render images as to what the device could look like when compared to few other competitions in the market right now.
As you can see from the above image, the iPhone 8 is taller than the iPhone 7, however, it is still going to be much smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus, which means that it won’t be that difficult to handle. Also, when you compare this iPhone 8 with the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus, you will see that it smaller than both of them in terms of the height. The Galaxy S8 measures 148.9 x 68.1 x 8.0 mm whereas the Galaxy S8 Plus measures 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1 mm.
This quick comparison should give you a nice idea on what to expect from the iPhone 8 in terms of the size. Do make a note that the source claims to have received these dimensions from factory workers with intimate knowledge of smartphone. While this sounds quite promising, we highly suggest you take this with a pinch of salt and wait for any official confirmation from the company. Having said that, we would like to know your thoughts on this. Are you fine with a larger footprint of the iPhone 8?
