iPhone 8 Concept Video Showcases New Features; Purported GeekBench Score Tips Outstanding Performance
Highlights
  • The concept video shows fingerprint sensor underneath display
  • GeekBench multi-core score is at a whopping 8,975
  • iPhone 8 is tipped to arrive in late October or November

iPhone 8 leaks are in full force, even though we are still months away from launch. Today's rumours bring a lot of interesting information. A new iPhone 8 concept video shows just what all is about to change on the device, while an alleged GeekBench scores really amp up the anticipation. There's also a fresh report that claims that the device won't go on sale till October, and another sketchy report claims that there might be two variants of the iPhone 8.

Diving in, first up is the concept video by designers Thiago M Duarte and Ran Avni, and it imagines all the changes expected on the iPhone 8. The video shows the edge-to edge display, the OLED panel colours, the 'almost' hidden front camera behind the display, the function bar at the bottom, the fingerprint scanner embedded underneath the display, and the dual speakers at the bottom edge. There's also a white variant shown in the video, and the back of the device is ceramic, and not all glass as leaked in previous photos. Check out the full video below.

The iPhone 8 was also supposedly spotted on GeekBench by a Weibo user with a single core score of 4,537 and a multi-core score of 8,975, leaving far behind all the competition in the market. To recap, the Galaxy S8 scored 1916 and 6011 in single-core and multi-core results respectively, and the Galaxy S8+ scored 1929 and 6084 in single-core and multi-core results respectively. These are the best scores currently in the smartphone market, and if this GeekBench test has any validation, then the iPhone 8 looks set to be a powerhouse. The scores are unverified however, and we'd urge readers to take the results with a pinch of salt.

The benchmark listing also suggests that the iPhone 8 will come with a 1242x2800 screen resolution, resulting into a weird 20.2:9 or 2.25:1 aspect ratio. The iPhone 8 GeekBench listing also hints that the smartphone runs on iOS 11, and is powered by a 2.74GHz A11 quad-core CPU.

Apple iPhone 8 Specifications, Release Date, and More - Leaks and Rumours So Far

Separately, Nikkei reports that the iPhone 8 won't launch before late October or November due to various technical difficulties. The report cites OLED panel production, new miniature circuit boards, and wireless charging components as the reason for delay. The report claims that Samsung is facing issues in supplying OLED panels that Apple wants, but doesn't elaborate on exactly what is causing the delay.

Furthermore, the report states that Apple wanted a much smaller circuit board alongside a bigger battery, and this is causing quality issues that still need to be tackled with. Also, wireless charging components are facing technical glitches and overheating issues still need to be dealt with. All of this may cause a delay in release, something that has been tipped in the past as well.

Lastly, a sketchy report from MicGadget suggests that there may be two variants of the iPhone 8 - iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. There will be no iPhone 7s launch at all. "Rumours say that Apple will be released two iPhone 7s and one iPhone 8 (or iPhone Edition) models. Today we can tell you , that it's not true. In this fall we can see only two models with new technology. Very interesting that rumours leaked new iPhone 8 and big iPhone 8 Plus will have similar dual cameras. If it will be true, we can make via small iPhone 8 cool photos like on iPhone 8 Plus," the report says. This information is based on unspecified Foxconn sources, and we'd recommend you to take this one very lightly.
