Apple is widely suspected of working on a major overhaul of the iPhone, on the 10nth anniversary of its introduction into the marketplace. New photos purportedly showing the upcoming iPhone 8 appear to support this speculation.

Serial leaker Benjamin Geskin released photos on Twitter of an all-screen device with a vertical dual camera, claiming it is a dummy model provided by a source with connections at Apple supplier Foxconn.

If legitimate, the photos support several features that analysts predict will appear on the iPhone 8, including a hidden home button and a curved glass front and back.

Reports last month suggested the form of Apple’s next iPhone will favor "gentler" curves than the rival Galaxy S-series devices produced by Samsung.

A patent filed by Apple in February prompted speculation that the iPhone 8 will feature an edge-to-edge screen that allows front-facing speakers, cameras and other hardware to be placed below a glass cover in an inactive part of the display.

The all-screen smartphone would also ditch the home button that features on previous devices, instead incorporating it into the screen.

Separate reports suggest Apple’s iPhone 8 could be delayed by up to two months due to manufacturing complications with the edge-to-edge screen.

Apple will be hoping its next iPhone, expected to be unveiled in September, will stem declining device sales. The Cupertino-based company reported its first-ever decline in iPhone sales in 2016, with CEO Tim Cook citing the slowing pace of smartphone upgrades as a reason for the slump.
