If you have been wondering how Apple’s next flagship handset may compare to the iPhone 7 Plus, we’ve got some new details for you. Thanks to Israeli blogger Shai Mizrachi, who shared images with 9to5Mac in April and again more recently, we can now do an early iPhone 8 vs. iPhone 7 Plus size comparison. Carry on reading for the details and take a look at the images.
iPhone 8 vs. iPhone 7 Plus
The image above shows an alleged dummy version of the iPhone 8 next to an iPhone 7 Plus. It could be one of the first clear examples of size which includes length, width, and thickness.
As for the validity of these images, we can’t give you any promises that it’s the real iPhone 8. However, what we can tell you is that this dummy has appeared before. The last time was in April, and again, it was thanks to the Israeli blogger. However, at that time, the only image available was of a close-up, so no size comparison could be made.
Earlier this week, 9to5Mac again received exclusive images; however, these images, like the one above, shows it much better. Features of the iPhone 8 can be seen, including a vertically-aligned camera, an edge-to-edge display, and an elongated Home button, but no rear Touch ID.
Additionally, there’s a black glass back with a silver trim around the edges, one other noticeable feature of the camera. It appears to be larger than that which is on the iPhone 7 Plus.
As for how this iPhone 8 vs. iPhone 7 Plus comparison pans out, if this is really the next and tenth anniversary device, it looks much smaller than its predecessor, even though it has been touted as having a 5.8-inch OLED display. Furthermore, the dummy unit has the same two-toned black and silver finish that Benjamin Geskin has predicted, which means that it may not be 100% accurate, but you can almost guarantee it’s close.
With the images secured by 9to5Mac came a video which shows footage of the iPhone 8 from every angle. In fact, this iPhone 8 vs. iPhone 7 Plus comparison video lets us see them side by side. As with the images, again, the next Apple handset looks much smaller. Size-wise, we think it looks much more comparable to the iPhone 7 rather than the larger of the two models. However, it’s obvious that if the bezel-free iPhone doesn’t have to make room for a Home button, its display can take up more room on the face of the handset, meaning it’s bigger than the 7 Plus screen.
When it comes to screen size and just how bezel-free this handset it, unfortunately, it couldn’t be switched on. As such, we couldn’t compare the overall screen size to that of the iPhone 7 Plus. However, what we can say is that there doesn’t appear to be a Home button anywhere on the iPhone 8 dummy, unlike the 7 Plus. If you’ve been following the anniversary handset rumors, this could mean Apple will embed Touch ID into the screen.
As far as an iPhone 8 vs. iPhone 7 Plus comparison is concerned, that’s all we can give you now. However, if you want to know how the iPhone 8 compares to the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, take a look here, as we have one of Benjamin Geskin’s designs in the comparison test, and the results and images are quite astounding.
