The display is rumored to be made out of flexible plastic OLED rather than an LCD. This OLED plastic allows iPhone to introduce a thin device that consumes less power and offers better display along with high contrast ratio and true to life colors.
It is rumored to feature edges like Samsung Galaxy S7, but we are not sure at this point whether the display will have curved edges or will the edges response to touch gestures. The rumors suggest that the new Apple iPhone 8 is going to have a glass body similar to iPhone 4, instead of the aluminum body. And the glass will be built around aluminum or stainless steel frame.

Rumors suggest that certification for the 10-nanometer process is expected to be achieved in late 2016, with the first 10-nanometer chip for validation during the first quarter of 2017. An A11 chip is a faster and more energy efficient, along with small size.
Rumors have suggested that Apple is working on long-range wireless charging technology that could be implemented in iPhones, making it an ideal addition to the iPhone 8. Apple will have to face some obstacles to overcome before such technology can be applied, such as the loss of power transfer efficiency. This will result in batteries far away from a charging source to charge more slowly.
Apple will soon be hiring expert engineers in the field of wireless charging in coming months; it is also rumored that wireless charging feature could be in process. Apple having eliminated the headphone jack in the 2016 iPhone 7, leaving the Lightning port to serve multiple functions, and wireless charging is the next step for the 2017 iPhone.
