Just as reports claim Apple has officially started mass production of the iPhone 8, new models shared by blogger Ben Miller offer a clearer look at the devices new ‘Copper Gold’ finish and larger display.
Apple’s new ‘Copper Gold’ finish is an amalgamation of Gold and Rose Gold, with KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo, dubbed the “best Apple analyst on the planet” by some, claiming Apple will launch the iPhone 8 in fewer colors than usual in an effort to maintain a “boutique” style of branding.
According to leaked dimensions coming from sources within Apple’s supply chain, it appears that the iPhone 8 will be smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus, yet larger than the iPhone 7, closely matching Samsung with the Galaxy S8. It’s believed this year’s iPhone release will see Apple introduce an all new device featuring a 5.8-inch display which will feature a “Function Area” that will be home to Apple’s virtual Home button that will support Touch ID through a fingerprint scanner embedded directly into the display.
