'Leaked' iPhone 8 schematic reveals mysterious circle on back


28 April, 2017

The problem? Apple has never mentioned the integration of such a system in its iPhone 8, or even in another device.

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. The new schematic claims to show Apple's next generation smartphone, a device that features a dual-lens vertical rear camera and possible wireless charging area with no rear Touch ID sensor.

This might represent a cooling of interest in iPhones among curious Android users, but I'd speculate it instead represents an intensification of interest in Apple's next iPhone, given the hype surrounding the tenth-anniversary release.

More leaked details about the iPhone 8 are making the rounds online. With new models of the iPhone 8 set to drop some time this year, tech sites are swirling with reports that Apple's latest version may be a top-to-bottom revamp, updating everything from screen aesthetics to colors, battery life to charging. Apple's iPhone feature and design plans are still in flux and can change, they added.

Apple is apparently testing an all-new iPhone design with an all-screen on the front panel, curved glass and a stainless unibody steel frame.

The technology is expected to replace OLED displays in the Apple Watch and may allow in-display fingerprint scanning when combined with infrared diodes, according to a recent patent filing.

Apple's new system would use electromagnetic frequencies at the higher range, which are usually reserved for data transmission.

Apple's invention deviates from contemporary technology in that incorporated wireless circuitry and supporting components handle both communications and power delivery. The company has always been rumored to implement a new wireless charging technology into the next flagship iPhone - a wireless charging technology that does away with charging mats. No rear Touch ID button is included in the schematic. "With only 10 percent of 7 and 7 Plus buyers switching from an Android phone, now 3-6 months after the launch of those models in September 2016, we see how the premiere iPhone models sell mostly to the installed base of iPhone owners". Our guess: Apple is trying to keep its unreleased phone more discreet-looking, as it seems unlikely that the company would forgo its own branding. Further, as per Brian White (analyst), the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 will be available for pre-orders along with the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone devices, however, the availability of the 5.8-inch variant is likely to happen sometime in October-November. Powermat CEO Elad Dubzinski called wireless charging "a standard feature in the next iPhone".
