Apple is reportedly working on a completely revamped iPhone to mark the 10th anniversary for the revolutionary smartphone. The device is expected to feature major upgrades over the current generation and the latest leak seems to confirm this.

Reputable Apple leaker Sonny Dickson just tweeted a picture of what look to be design schematics for the upcoming iPhone.

Leak confirms biggest upgrade for iPhone 8

The leaked image shows a device that features a rear-mounted finger print scanner which suggests Apple may be doing something different with the smartphone’s display this time round. The dual-camera setup has also been changed from a horizontal to vertical layout.

The schematics also reveal the device will be approximately 15cm (or 5.9 inches) high and about 7.2cm wide (or 2.8 inches) wide so we can expect a 5.8 inch screen.

The image also confirms earlier rumours which suggest the new iPhone may come with a bezel less curved display with no home button, similar to what we saw on the Samsung Galaxy S8.

However, the source of the image has not yet been confirmed which means nothing is confirmed for now.

Tech giant Apple is expected to unveil its new iPhone during its signature hardware event in September this year. Reports, however, suggest that shipping of the final product might be slightly delayed.
