A number of photos were tweeted on May 22, allegedly showing molds of the highly anticipated 2017 iPhone lineup. These photos show the sizes of the iPhone 8 (aka “X”/”Edition”) compared to the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus.
Expectations are for Apple to announce 3 new iPhones in 2017: 2 LCD-display “S” cycle upgrades to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, alongside a dramatic redesign, known as the iPhone 8, iPhone X, and iPhone Edition (10th anniversary iPhone model), with an edge-to-edge OLED display.
The photos line up with unconfirmed details circulating the web recently, especially the alleged dimensions of the new iPhone.

Despite the similarity, reports suggest the redesigned phone could pack a 5.8-inch display that’s closer in size to the screen on the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus. A lack of bezels at the top and bottom of the device are said to enable the larger OLED area.[/perfectpullquote]
