Just weeks away from at least two, likely three, new iPhones being announced by Apple, we are very much in a position of taking every leak with a pinch of salt.

While there has been a plethora of supposed iPhone 8 dummy handsets leaked over the past 10 days, we are still in a period of time where anything and everything could be both real and fake, and until Apple finally announces its new devices, we’re left scrambling to try and work out which each new leak is.

Today we have been treated to two short, blurry and shaky videos which could possibly give us a glimpse of the iPhone 8 production line. Or they might not. The two videos were originally shared to Chinese social networking site Weibo and have since been uploaded to YouTube in case the Wiebo posts were deleted.

The first of those videos appears to show what could be a number of iPhone 8 rear panels being polished by workers, although again the length and quality of the video does make it difficult to tell.

The second video is even shorter than the first – just eight seconds long – and may be showing us a number of iPhones held on some sort of rack. Again though, it is impossible to really tell what we are looking at here due to the absurdly poor quality.

While the videos do appear to show a device with a vertical camera arrangement as has been rumored for the iPhone 8, we are still dubious about what we see here. The likes of Foxconn and other Apple contractors all have strict security controls in place, specifically designed to stop things like this happening.

While that may explain the length and quality of what has been leaked, we are not at all convinced anything we see here can be trusted as yet. That is, assuming you can work out exactly what you are seeing in either video!
