Leaked iPhone 8 Images Show Fingerprint Scanner Built In Screen

Apple is usually known for keeping a tight lid on leaks regarding their latest products. However, the iPhone 8 has been a victim of way too many leaks. One of the most common leaks was the fingerprint scanner built into the display, and we might just confirm it.

Today a new leak shows a CAD image and shots of the iPhone 8 in a case, revealing that the fingerprint scanner will seemingly be built into the screen. Earlier leaks suggested that the scanner would be on the back of the phone, and while leaked dummy units of the iPhone 8 show an absence of visible scanners, they were made based on diagrams which may not have had every marking in place, so left the possibility of a rear-mounted scanner open.

The CAD image was shared by Benjamin Geskin, who's been leaking a lot of iPhone 8 stuff. The design here shows an all-screen front, albeit with a cut-out at the top for the front-facing camera, while on the back there's that vertically aligned dual-lens camera that we've seen so much of.

There also seems to be a circle, which you would think is the fingerprint scanner, but according to Geskin it's simply the location of the Apple logo. To back that up, Slashleaks has posted images of a dummy iPhone 8 unit in a case -- with no fingerprint scanner cut-out on the back.

These are just rumors for now, so we advice you take this with a pinch of salt. However, are you looking forward to the iPhone 8?
