The iPhone 8 has been spotted again ahead of its official debut this fall. This time, it’s in a super-sharp case render that provides a high-res look at its gorgeous edge-to-edge display.

Thanks to an ever-growing list of leaks, we already have a good idea of what the iPhone 8 will look like. Apple itself provided us with an inadvertent glimpse at its new design with graphics hidden in its HomePod firmware. Now we can take a clearer, closer look.

This render, posted on Twitter by ever-reliable leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks), shows the iPhone 8 inside a rugged case. As expected, the device has a larger display with incredible slim bezels, which extends beyond the front-facing camera to meet the top edge of the phone.

There’s a notch that houses that camera and new sensors for facial recognition, as well as the front-facing speaker. There is no Home button in sight, with recent leaks again suggesting that Touch ID will be relocated to the back of the device.

There’s nothing new here, but it is one of the best images of iPhone 8 so far — and it comes from an incredibly reliable source. This will almost certainly be the device Apple unveils this September alongside the more affordable iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.
