Rumours are suggesting that the iPhone 8 will have an edge-to-edge display that removes both the top and bottom bezels. This means features such as the Touch ID sensor and front-facing camera is most likely to be built into the display, rather than a being a bezel.  A similar feature with Samsung's latest releases.

Despite these rumours, the future of the fingerprint sensor isn't 100% secure as many people think that facial recognition technology will be introduced.

Better display performance whilst using less power

The actual display of the phone is rumoured to change from LCD to a flexible OLED. This will allow Apple to build thinner devices that consume less energy and power, therefore producing a better display with higher contrast ratios. Customise an iPhone 8 case here.

Is the iPhone 8 a suitable size?

Although we cannot confirm how big the phone is, the word on the street is that the display size may be 5.8 inch, which 5.15 inches of that being a usable space. The rest of the space is most likely to be dedicated to virtual buttons, replacing the home button that we all know too well. There is likely to be an iPhone 8 Plus too. Shop for your case.
