This isn't the iPhone 8, but it still looks pretty cool.

The rumor mill for the next iPhone has been running full speed lately. On Monday, a graphic designer shared renderings he created of what Apple 's next iPhone might look like.

Benjamin Geskin posted a series of renderings he made for an iPhone to his Twitter account. He based the renderings off a series of rumors about the next iPhone's specs and an alleged leaked schematic of Apple's next device. The pictures were accompanied simply with the words: "THIS IS IT. 2017 OLED iPhone."

Apple's biggest rival, Samsung, has made a splash with preorders for its Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus exceeding those for last year's Galaxy S7. Could Apple's answer look something like this?

Geskin said he believes strongly this is next premium iPhone. He cites Monday's news about potential manufacturing delays as proof Apple "decided to go with 'hard to make' iPhone."

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
