We’re still leaking. What good was Tim Cook doing complaining about them and trying to eradicate them by hiring former CIA agents, even though judging by what we see almost every day, it’s backfired. In fact, some rumors are more misleading than confirmed, as could be the case of what we bring you today, a box of the alleged iPhone 8 that of course, comes from China .
It’s true that it’s less than a year away from its launch in the autumn, but it’s still July and it would be surprising if someone could steal a box of the iPhone 8 three months from now, which would mean that the next flagship from the Bitten Apple company is not only completely designed, but also is in a very advanced stage of production and the logistics are already in place for the packaging .
Coming from Weibo, this image shows what appears to be a legitimate iPhone 8 box, and we say legitimate because the vertical dual camera helps us to distinguish the terminal from behind . But the fact that the picture is so bad quality makes us think that it could also be a crappy photoshop job. Why do we think this? For example we can see an antenna band on top of the terminal, something that a priori the iPhone 8 would not have being made of glass and that if they have other models made of metal.
And speaking of glass, that housing doesn’t look like glass either , what’s more, despite the poor quality it looks like aluminium. Finally, the power button is supposed to be a bit longer on the iPhone 8, and the one in the image seems to be like the one on previous models. Obviously there is no jack connection either, but that’s something that is neither in the iPhone 7 nor expected in future models.
But we insist, what makes us go back more is the timing of this filtration , because although September is just around the corner, we feel that it is too early for the production phase to be so advanced that we can already see its packaging, something that for example in the iPhone 7 was filtered at the beginning of September.
Besides, if we’ve been speculating for months about the delay in the iPhone 8 launch given the innovations we’ll see, what’s the point of having it ready three months earlier?
