    The widely rumored 5.8-inch iPhone with an edge-to-edge OLED display will match the iPhone 7 Plus with 3GB of RAM and come in two storage options, 64GB and 256GB, according to Chinese research firm TrendForce.

    The report, which outlines several already-rumored features, added that the so-called "iPhone 8" will not have a fully curved display due to production and drop test issues with 3D glass. Instead, the high-end device will adopt the same slightly curved 2.5D cover glass used since the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in 2014.

    TrendForce said Apple will remove the Home button on the iPhone, as widely rumored, and integrate the related functions into the display. If that fact is accurate, it suggests rumored 3D facial recognition capabilities could supplement rather than fully replace Touch ID, which could be embedded into the display.

    TrendForce itself expects the "iPhone 8" to incorporate 3D sensing technology that can be used for facial recognition and augmented reality features.

    The research note said the 5.8-inch iPhone will be accompanied by updated 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models with LCD displays. The 5.5-inch model will allegedly have the same 3GB of RAM as the iPhone 7 Plus, while the 4.7-inch model is said to have 2GB of RAM. Both models are expected to include up to 256GB of storage.

    Rumors are generally shaping up to suggest the 5.8-inch iPhone with an OLED display will be a significant upgrade, but the model could cost upwards of $1,000 in the United States. Meanwhile, the new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models are expected to be iterative but less expensive upgrades to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

    Last year, TrendForce accurately predicted the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus would be available in 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage capacities.

    If it's 256 at the 128 price hooray. If it's Apple trying to put the squeeze on customers it's really shameful.

    if Apple cannot make oled for all 3 options storage, than 64 and 256 are the perfect duo. Or if Apple wants to make only 1 storage than Apple should go with 128

    Classic Apple! Force people to buy 256gb and get as much money back right away from people! $949+ for this device.

    I am wondering how cases will sufficiently attach if the display is edge-to-edge. Even more broken screens incoming.

    There's so much smoke when it comes to the rumours for this iPhone '8' that I'm really starting to wonder what the fire will look like. Should be quite interesting.

    Still not seeing any reason to purchase the upcoming device. There's very little change, unless the form factor itself is brand new. I would much rather see support for current tech that has completely fallen off Apple's radar.. like 3D touch...of course I really want a brand new IOS. The current version seems unfinished and slow.

    I'm starting to wonder if the highest end model will be upwards of $1500. And I'm also starting to wonder if I'll just give Apple the finger, keep my money, and move on if it is.

    I always get the max storage. Saves any regrets.

    I'm still using my 6+ 128GB, but will get the 8 in September.

    I have a 7 plus and 3gb of ram is nice, but I often find myself switching to a laptop because my phone can't handle certain websites. I think 4gb of ram would've been better, most phones have it.

    Face recognition cannot replace the Touchid at the moment. How can the camera see you in the dark? If it 'not just works', Apple will not implement it without Touchid yet.

    I just had my first "so what will happen with iPads after the iPhone 8?" thought. A giant slab that's one giant screen will be pretty neat. Very excited for all of this.

    Most phones runs Android. iOS is more efficiënt with RAM. What adult websites are you trying to load?

    Early release this year? Rumors seem to be coming early and often compared to years past.

    Nice try. Pretty much everyone I know thinks 64 is sufficient.

    That's sortof what we're getting before the iPhone 8, no? If the 10.5" rumors are true. And maybe the 12.9 will follow.
