A word of warning: Geskin has been posting a lot of iPhone 8 renders and mockups to his Twitter account, but he's a relatively new source of leaks. As per the report, Apple will roll out the iPhone 9 in two size variants of 5.28-inch and 6.46-inch.

While this remains to be clarified, a fresh speculation has made its way to the WebSphere revealing the camera details of the iPhone 8.

It also contains a number of expected features for the iPhone 8.

Other features of the new iPhone 9 iPhone 9 Plus are not specified yet.

True, this latest video, shared by prominent leaker Benjamin Geskin, is of a "dummy model", meaning it has the looks of the iPhone 8 but is empty inside (just like our souls after almost a year of iPhone rumors). The 10-second clip shows off the handset's glass and metal bezel-less design and seems to confirm rumors that the iPhone 8 will pack a dual camera setup on its rear.

The iPhone 8 is likely to be announced in September 2017, marking 10 years since the firm launched its first smartphone. The device that will mark Apple's tenth iPhone anniversary is supposed to be something entirely new in terms of design and features, and some reports claim Apple will have to delay the phone's launch due to the sophistication of some of its components.

The iPhone 8 rumor machine has been running at a high gear, so much so that Tim Cook thinks it's affecting current iPhone sales. Amid reports that the entry-level iPhone 8 model will start at $1,000, a more recent note from UBS analyst Steven Milunovich relays that Apple's next-gen iPhone will be a tad more wallet-friendly.

Goldman Sachs advised investors to buy Apple shares because it says the more expensive iPhone 8 will drive earnings above expectations.

'Technical issues related to the lamination process of curved OLED panels, and the adoption of a 3D sensing system may cause the delay of the new iPhone devices, ' said the paper. That figure is more than double that of the 80 million panels which Samsung is said to be producing for the iPhone 8.
