A new leak has just come out that Apple has codenamed the iPhone 8 “Ferrari”, according to a Weibo user who has revealed leaks in the past.

The 10th anniversary iPhone will also be accompanied by two refreshes of the iPhone 7, which may be released as iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.

All three models are expected to be launched at an Apple event September, 2017.

According to the source, cited in cnBeta (in Chinese), the documentation that mentioned this talks about three models: D20, D21 and D22. The first two are supposedly the iPhone 7 refreshes, while the third is the highly anticipated iPhone 8 that will release during the anniversary year of the very first iPhone.

The website also mentions a possible price drop, in order to help Apple gain more market share.

The Ferrari, as the D22 is being called, is obviously the most exciting of all. A bezel-less AMOLED screen is one of the features mentioned, which gives some credence to a larger-screen iPhone next year without much of an increase to the phone’s actual dimensions. This is something we reported on November 24 – a 5.8-inch option.

No mention was made of any of the other features we’ve reported thus far, better 3D photography, all glass design, wireless charging, etc. But it does say that Apple will use a different logic board this time around. It will be divided into two parts, one housing the A11 chip and NAND flash storage, the other housing the WiFi, cellular and other chips; both parts will be connected by a flex cable. It looks something like this:

The SIM card tray may also see a migration towards the bottom of the phone, to make space for more components at the top. That could indicate some changes to the camera and other modifications that will allow for an all-glass design.
