According to the WSJ, the new phone is expected to feature an edge-to-edge OLED display like the Samsung Galaxy S8 that went on sale in April.

Despite all the troubles that Apple is reportedly going through for the iPhone 8, there is no assurance that the smartphone will be able to live up to the massive hype that it has generated. While 2-dimensional renders are nice, it's now time to check on Apple's upcoming new iPhone 8 in 3D. Or have they? Some rumors were suggesting that Apple was struggling to get the Touch ID sensor to work quickly and reliably after being moved to its new location.
