Two photos of an alleged iPhone 8 metal case shows fingerprint scanner position

- Adrian Ungureanu

After some renders of the phone made by fans of by some protective cases makers, two new photos of an alleged real iPhone metal case puts our imagination to test.

Now, my personal feeling tells me that this metal blank looks very similar to some schematics that surfaced back in April, but nobody liked them.

There are many similarities: The cutouts for the cameras and flash, for the logo or the fingerprint scanner and even some positions for where the bolt holes.

Also, at the bottom you’ll see the cut out for the Lightning connector and the same perforations for the speakers. Check the gallery to see for yourselves.

Anyway, this new leak only fuels the rumors that suggest that Apple decided not to go for the in-display fingerprint scanner on iPhone 8 anymore.
