We're certainly not lacking for rumors about the iPhone 8, and designer Vladimir Obshansky seems to have drawn on many of those purported features when he put together this concept video. You'll see the vertically stacked cameras and on-screen Touch ID sensor that have both been the subject of popular rumors. Obshansky's vision for the phone also includes an expansive 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen. There are even shout-outs to the augmented reality features Apple's likely to add to its next phone. The biggest flight of fancy? We wouldn't expect the 8GB of RAM that Obshansky's video predicts.
A lot of iPhone 8 videos deal in the realm of speculation, but this video from EverythingApplePro may be showing off the real thing — or at least, something made up to look like the iPhone 8. The device in this video is a mockup created by an accessories maker, reportedly based on the iPhone 8's actual schematics. This model, which will be used to create cases for the next iPhone, one-ups other mockups by incorporating the glass-and-metal design reportedly slated for the iPhone 8.
No, this isn't an official iPhone 8 video, but this new offering from ConceptsiPhone could double as an introduction to Apple's newest phone, as it reflects many of the current rumors about the device. (One exception: This concept video envisions dynamic volume buttons, which are unlikely to appear in the final version of the iPhone 8.) Stick around after the trailer for a more fanciful "hands-on" video that spotlights some features likely to be on the iPhone 8 such as wireless charging and others — a transparent body design and dual-screen rear logo — that won't be.
Some iPhone renderings posted on Chinese site iFanr seize on some of the popular rumors surrounding the iPhone 8 to create not just a compelling looking design, but one that just might come pretty close to showcasing the iPhone 8's final look. Reportedly based on schematics, the drawings feature a phone with a 5.8-inch screen in a 5.4 x 2.7-inch frame, roughly the same height as the iPhone 7 though a little bit wider. The bezel is just 4 mm thin, leaving ample room for screen space. And on the back, you see vertically aligned dual rear cameras, which would make it easier to support the augmented reality features Apple reportedly plans to add to its future phones.
With a nod to Apple's previous ads, this rendering attempts to showcase what the handset might look like in its many different forms. There's a liquid black version, as well as one with a white gloss finish. You'll also notice that the designer has envisioned several different colors for the iPhone 8's edges, including gold and rose gold.

Benjamin Geskin has a knack for mocking up smartphones that we want in our hands right now, and his function area concept is one of the best we've seen yet. This render shows off the awesome potential of the iPhone's bottom bezel being turned into a fully interactive touch screen, with contextually relevant controls for things like making calls, controlling music playback and browsing the web.

Of all the borderless iPhone 8 concepts we've seen, this one from Gabor Balogh just might be the most jaw-dropping. Aside from looking pretty, Balogh's "iPhone X" concept shows off a bunch of awesome conceptual features, including an augmented reality Siri that can tell you about whatever real-world object you point the phone's camera at.
