Rumored iPhone 8 Packing Insert Teases Design With Minimal Bezels

Leak aggregator SlashLeaks today published a claimed photograph of the purported iPhone 8 user manual that seemingly “confirms” the device’s rumored bezel-less design with a physical slit at the top of its 5.8-inch OLED display for the earpiece, the camera and sensors.

The photograph was originally posted on China’s popular social network Weibo by a source with a sketchy track record so best thing you take this report with a grain of salt.

As noted by 9to5Mac, the packaging insert not only shows the minimal bezels, but it also appears to corroborate the expectation that the Power button on the side of the phone will be a bit more elongated than in previous iPhone generations. Rumor has it that Apple may be considering integrating Touch ID into that button — or maybe not. The display itself does look like it will have an 18:9 aspect ratio, too, putting it in a similar space to Samsung’s Galaxy S8.

What do you think? The packaging insert looks the same as we’ve seen in previous iPhone boxes, but of course there’s no telling if it’s real or not just yet. Are you starting to like this design for the iPhone 8, or do you wish Apple would go with something else?
