Latest rumours surrounding iPhone 8 suggest a special "mirror-like" finish is in the works for Apple’s next flagship device.

This tip-off is, of course, courtesy Apple’s seasoned leaker Benjamin Geskin on Twitter, who often gets most iPhone information correct.

Geskin claims that the 10th anniversary edition iPhone would come in four colours, including mirror-like finish, with the others presumably white, black, and rose gold.

Leak confirms iPhone 8 bezel-less design

Previously the iPhone 8 was expected to feature in six colours, with red, gold and grey amongst them.

Although the tweet showcases an older version of the iPhone, it gives us an idea of what to expect.

The mirror-like finish would certainly make the tenth anniversary iPhone stand out from the crowd, including the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus expected to launch alongside it.

The rumours come on the heels of the news that the wireless charging tech Apple wants to put in its next handsets might not be ready by the September release date.

We're just glad that we finally got to hear a rumour that isn’t based on whether the Touch ID sensor will be on the front or the back of the phone.

The iPhone 8 is reportedly set to feature a bezel-free display, a vertically aligned dual-lens camera with some extra AR smarts and possibly even a curved screen.
