This isn't the real, but I wouldn't be disappointed if it were.
Instead, the images here are part of a set of iPhone 8 renders that recently appeared from OnLeaks, a prolific mobile tipster, in conjunction with GearIndia. They're supposedly based off of Apple's computer-aided design (CAD) images. Even though this doesn't guarantee that they will resemble the actual phone later this year, they give us an idea of what we could maybe expect based off of rumors.

On the back we see the that were mentioned in previous rumors, but no rear Touch ID sensor for your fingerprints (thank goodness).
GearIndia notes that the rendered image is based on measurements of 143.5 by 70.9 by 7.7 mm. But if Apple is testing out a bunch of different iPhone 8 prototypes, the dimensions could come out a little different in the end.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
