    the iphone 8 has the same design again except wrapped in glass. We want to know if the iphone 9 will have a borderless and oled screen like the X? So is the 8 the last generation with the old design and LCD screen?

    No because it won't exist. iPhone 11 or iPhone XT (T for TouchID) is probably next.

    The iPhone X does not have a borderless screen.

    It doesn't even make sense seeing it as how they just replaced it with face id. No way they'll bring it back after a year, if it all.

    The screen isn't borderless , there is a notch at the top of the phone

    I hope iPhone 8S Plus receives the FaceID technology.

    i'm pretty sure they will release a iphone 8s or 9 next year, but i think it will still be the same design, but with updated internals.

    The notch isn't there just for Face ID. It'll be there until Apple work out a way embed sensors/cameras into the screen.

    I think it will be interesting to see if Apple introduces the edge to edge screen and faceid on an LCD screened phone for lower priced models.

    It will come back when they'll figure out how to implement it under the screen. Till then enjoy the new FaceID. ;)

    There's so many different ways Apple could take the line from here, we could get a 7s and 8s next year to refresh the 7 and 8 at the same price point, a 9 or 8s to push the 8 and 7 down one price tier, and the 9 or 8s could be the same design as the 8, same but with a rectangular 16:9 oled panel, or full faced oled in two sizes to succeed both the 8 and the X.

    Does anyone know if it is going to rain on 9/25/2018 ? Instead of making threads like this, how about focusing on life in the present.

    Even if TouchID does come back, they'd be really stupid to name the phone after it!

    I talked about iPhone X sensors techniques in the hardware design of the iPhone 8 Plus.
