IPhone 8 compared to the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus
On the expanses of Weibo and Twitter, we found a selection of photos, which allows you to compare the sizes and main differences in the design of all three models of Apple smartphones in 2017 release.
Presumably, the photo shows the production forms of iPhone 8, iPhone 7s and 7s Plus.
Most likely we are talking about forms for the manufacture of covers by third-party manufacturers. Nevertheless, they clearly show differences in the size, location of the controls and cameras.
If you believe this leak, the iPhone 8 is noticeably larger than the 5.5-inch iPhone 7s Plus. While previously it was said that the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 would be comparable in size to the iPhone 7s Plus due to the reduction of the frames around the display.
