Apple's completely packed WWDC product announcements provided a brief moment of distraction, but we're now back to our regularly scheduled programming of iPhone 8 leaks.

The newest iPhone 8 leaks show what appear to be the first images of Apple's next flagship.

First published to Imgur and then shared on Reddit, the images reveal a front-facing glass panel indicating an edge-to-edge display, a glass back panel with a cutout for the vertically-aligned dual cameras, and a part for the rear cameras with integrated LED flash and microphone.

The second image in the album shows the purported iPhone 8 panel (the two parts farthest to the right) next to what could be the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus rear panels on the left.

"I have a friend in the industry who just sent me these. He said the Chinese manufacturers got these last week," says the caption.

"Big surprise for the iPhone 7s/7s Plus-supposedly it's getting wireless charging as well!"

While both panels match up with a handful of previous rumours, there's still a strong possibility that it's an elaborate fake or prototype part that was scrapped.

One thing that's throwing us off is the claim the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus will get wireless charging.

While noted KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed it'd be the case earlier this year, newer reports have walked the rumour back.

Fake or not, the iPhone 8's edge-to-edge display could still look very similar.

Prominent mobile leaker and concept artist Benjamin Geskin, who has released a swath of iPhone 8 leaks in recent months, claims the iPhone 8's display will stretch from corner to corner with a cutout for the earpiece, FaceTime camera, and other sensors.

You can see his concept below.
