Confused Powermat CEO Says Apple Announced iPhone 8 Wireless Charging

Of course, we won't know anything for sure until Apple actually releases the phone; the company famously doesn't confirm or deny anything related to gadget leaks. Regardless, the internet is flipping out today thinking the still unannounced iPhone 8's wireless charging rumor has been confirmed. Cook suggests that Apple is very much committed to augmented reality, and it seems unlikely that the CEO of the company would have let this cat out of the bag if it was not to be imminently reflected in the Apple product range. At a more basic level, the printed circuit boards are also said to be problematic for Apple. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has consistently failed to address with its iPhone lineup.

Ridding the iPhone 8 of the Home button will enable the display to extend to the outer limits of the body of the device.

Just like Samsung and LG, Apple is expected to fill the front of its phone with a screen, removing the physical home button and extending the screen to the edges of the device. However, they did not mention a true wireless-charging feature.

Like other wireless charging techniques, including more conventional "inductive" charging, the design would require both a transmitter and receiver to work. The curves are similar in shape to those on the front of the iPhone 7.

Micro-LED displays should be smaller as an alternative to OLED screens.

Nonetheless, the release of the upcoming flagship is still months away, and it's fun to look at possible designs that people over the concept department cooks up.

It's also only available in top end memory capacities - 128 and 256GB - so you have no choice but to pay more than you would for other versions of the 7 or 7 Plus.

Samsung Display and LG Display, now supply panels for Apple's phones. As per previous reports, Apple is planning to implement a bezel-less curved OLED display on the next iPhone but some unsuspected delays in the development recently pointed out that Apple might, in fact, shift to normal OLED displays. It's now unclear if that feature will make it into the final product.

Elsewhere, the dual camera set-up debuted with the iPhone 7 Plus looks set to make a return, albeit rotated 90-degrees so that it is stacked vertically. Additionally, we can spot dual rear cameras on the back.
