We've previously reported on hushed rumors surrounding the iPhone 8: the fact it may feature wireless charging, how much it may cost, and what the handset may look like.

Now a new leak has put some meat on the rumour bones, as it were, with a list of features (rumored) to feature on the forthcoming iteration of the screen you stare at for 50% of your day.

Yesterday Forbes reported, "Three alleged Foxconn employees have set Reddit into a frenzy with a thread that gave away extensive information about Apple's upcoming 2017 iPhone and other products. Adding further spice, subreddit's moderators confirmed they verified the identities of the posters with proper documentation and evidence."

In layman's terms, it's pretty bloody likely these features are the real deal.

These are the 15 details:

1. The new iPhone is called the "iPhone X" (though that may still be a code name).

2. It will look like the middle phone in the above image.

3. There is a new dual rear camera with vertical alignment.

4. The front bezel will be thinner on the Y-axis.

5. Test units have Touch ID under the glass "but performance and yield rates were not good."

6. No version is planned with a rear fingerprint scanner.

7. AuthenTech's long standing Touch ID capacitive touch module has been replaced.

8. There will be Facial Detection and a Retina Scanner.

9. And plural: "front facing camera modules."

10. RAM remains at 3GB like the iPhone 7 Plus.

11. The aluminum unibody is replaced by "composite glass."

12. There's wireless charging via a rear panel.

13. It will again be "water resistant"

14. There is no USB-C, Apple is sticking with Lightning.

15. Production is, sadly, delayed.

Despite Apple's WWDC 2017 conference starting today, the company will be previewing their new MacBooks and iPads so don't hold your breath for any iPhone announcements. With that delayed release date looks like we'll be waiting a while.
