Images said to be of new iPhone show off large display, and rear Touch ID sensor

Every week, there seem to be new images or renders of Apple's upcoming iPhone. One problem with the barrage of information is that there doesn't seem to be a consensus on where the Touch ID fingerprint reader will make an appearance. Although there has been a lot of information about how Apple will embed its fingerprint sensor under the front glass, it seems more and more likely that the firm will relocate the sensor on the rear of the device, much like how Samsung did for its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

New images purporting to reveal the new iPhone have surfaced online that show off the handset in all its glory. As you can see from the first image, the handset doesn't quite offer the thinnest bezels but does look very different from its predecessors, with a good amount of the front being allocated to the display.

In this rendition, the fingerprint reader is located on the rear of the device, with a prominent vertical camera hump housing the dual lens system. Below the camera, a tiny flash module and microphone can also be seen.

The device shown in these images could be legitimate, or it could simply be a 'clone' or cheap knock-off. Regardless, since Apple generally releases its new iPhones towards the end of the year, we still have quite a bit of time left before we will gain confirmation.

But, there is always the chance that more solid information will arrive prior to the event that will solidify the design of the phone, along with where the fingerprint sensor will land.
