Leaks relating to the iPhone 8 have become almost commonplace over the past few weeks, and the latest comes apparently via a Foxconn leak.

This new leak is not one which actually shows us the iPhone 8 itself in its full glory though, or even a part that will be used inside it. What we do see here though is a sheet which is said to be part of the documentation that will ship in the iPhone 8’s box, showing users how to insert their SIM card into their new phone.

If you own an iPhone, or indeed any other phone then you will know that most come with a slip of paper showing new owners where they should insert their SIM card. The piece of paper, that has apparently been leaked on a Chinese social networking site, does look very similar, if not identical to the same slip which iPhone 7 owners receive although, obviously, the image on the paper shows what we have come to know as the iPhone 8.

Importantly, that image shows the almost bezel-free display on iPhone 8 with an area at the top dubbed “notch” reserved for the FaceTime camera and various sensors.

We of course have no way of knowing whether this leak is legitimate or not, and it is likely that we will only know for sure once people start receiving the new phone and begin to go unbox them after Apple’s official unveil. It is important to note here that this is one leak that would be exceptionally easy to fake if someone really did want to, so right now we are going to hold off on our judgement here. Is it real? Quite possibly, but as far as leaks go this is definitely one of those we will feel much more confident about once launch time rolls around.

Having said all that, this leak does match all of the previous rumors and leaks regarding final iPhone 8 design so there’s little to doubt that this isn’t the real deal here.

The iPhone 8 is expected to be announced by Apple during a September event, with new iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus devices also believed to be on the roster.
