A new leaked accessory may be further proof that the iPhone 8 is going bezel-less (AAPL)

A new iPhone 8 leak is making the rounds, and it shows an alleged screen protector that would suggest that the next iPhone will ditch bezels almost entirely.

A video shared on SlashLeaks (which we saw via 9to5Mac) shows what the iPhone 8’s front will purportedly look like: An edge-to-edge screen that stretches across the entire surface, save for a small cutout at the top to make room for the front-facing camera, a speaker grill and the proximity sensor.

Leakster Benjamin Geskin also went the extra mile and aligned the screen panel with previous iPhone 8 leaked pictures, showing that the protector is a perfect match for the iPhone 8 renders we have seen so far.

MobileFun has contributed to the speculation as well, with its recent posting of an “Olixar” iPhone 8 case, which is virtually identical to the one seen in SlashLeaks’ video.

This design would not be a first for smartphones — think Xiaomi’s Mi Mix or, more recently, Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone. But it would make for an overdue refresh for the iPhone, whose design has remained largely unchanged since 2014’s iPhone 6.
