The latest rumor says that iPhone 8 will come with an edge-to-edge 5.8-inch OLED panel but the practical portion of that will be limited to about 5.1 to 5.15 inches. The remaining space should be reserved for a 'function area' dedicated to system functions like virtual buttons. This rare pattern will ditch the home button which was found on every iPhone since the 2007 original.

This new iPhone is said to have 3D Facial recognition and/or iris scanning feature in it. Wireless charging, and Type-C cable charging are also expected to come in this device, regardless of its proprietary Lightning port. With bigger display and higher configuration, this new iPhone will, obviously be an expensive device to buy.
