    AppleInsider reports on a new article by Bloomberg that supports many of the recent rumours about the forthcoming high-end iPhone 8, such as that the phone will have cover glass on top of a steel frame, an edge-to-edge, Samsung-made OLED display, and new camera technology.

    Bloomberg says that Apple is still testing various designs for the curved display, and will most likely opt for a gently curved version mainly due to suppliers having problems manufacturing large quantities of anything steeper. Among the prototypes that Apple is still testing there are those with glass backs, as well as one with an iPhone-7-type aluminum back and larger dimensions.

    The detailed report also backs up other recent rumours that Apple is having trouble embedding the Touch ID fingerprint sensor in the edge-to-edge screen, and may even have to abandon plans to do so, and for this reason, the report also says that the iPhone 8 might launch a couple of months after Apple’s normal launch date in September.

    As far as the camera is concerned, Bloomberg’s sources say that Apple is testing prototypes with a vertical dual-lens rear camera and/or a dual-lens front camera, with the latter possibly being integrated into the OLED display.

    Like look of this. Could be due new phone later this year. Going to see if new iPhones are much better than the 6s which I have now. Can't think of much more any phones could be able to do tho now. Sticking with iPhone for ability to save Live Photos.
