It’s a year before we get to know the iPhone 8, but the rumors and «leaks» do not wait, and they say that the iPhone 8 will have a radically different design than the iPhone 7 / iPhone 7 currently shows.
In that sense, the latest rumors suggest that the iPhone 8 could have a screen that occupies the entire front surface of the phone, ie without bevels on the sides. Similar to what we can see currently in Xiaomi Mi Mix.
The main difference between the version of Xiaomi and the possible version without bevels of the iPhone 8 is that the latter would be all screen. Unlike the Xiaomi Mi Mix that still retains the lower bezel.
There is also talk of the possibility that the iPhone 8 has an OLED screen, possibly curved, for the first time on an iPhone. It would remove the start button in favor of a built-in sensor, which will make the screen bigger than before, while maintaining the same size dimensions of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Unlike the Xiaomi Mix, on the iPhone 8, the home button would be under the glass pane of the screen, which would allow a user to verify their identity with an invisible fingerprint reader. Sounds like something out of a science fiction movie, but it’s real. A good example is the ClearForce Synaptics technology.
Another very interesting rumor related to the iPhone 8 is the long range wireless charge or real wireless charge. What is now known as wireless charging is no more than a concept fools fools. Because the mobile phone is certainly not connected to the charger via cable, but the phone must remain on top of a charging pad all the time, which causes you to miss out on any possible utility / benefit of this charging method.
In the case of the iPhone 8 Apple wants to integrate long-range wireless charging. That is, you connect the charger or charging module to the power outlet and while you are within a range of 5 meters the iPhone will be charging completely wirelessly.
According to sources within the Apple supply chain, Foxconn is already working on the load modules that will be used in the iPhone 8, and are supposedly manufactured by Energous.
It is still a long time before the first leaks of the next iPhone and its components appear, but we will be attentive to inform you in detail about any new.
