    “Other features appear to include some form of facial gesture recognition supported by a new laser sensor and an infrared sensor mounted near the front-facing camera and, as expected, should also finally include wireless charging,” Cowen and Company's analyst Timothy Arcuri noted.

    Arcuri also suggests that the upcoming iPhone 8 will feature a 5.8-inch OLED wraparound display. Moreover, he predicts that the yet-to-be-announced iPhone 8 will result in record-breaking sales despite the recent decline in iPhone sales.
