We can't even blink.
When new rumors arise about the next iPhone, I like to imagine Tim Cook getting the news. My head wanders about possible reactions and my curiosity creates several scenarios for heated discussions between Apple CEO Jony Ive and Phil Schiller. On the one hand, free marketing; on the other hand, it is difficult to manage expectations and suspense.
Yesterday, the Fast Company released a report which states that the “iPhone X” (or “iPhone 8”) costs more than $ 1,000. If that weren't enough, today the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (famous for getting it very, very often) from KGI Securities, stated that all models of iPhones I will count on wireless charging (wireless charging).
Until then, it was speculated that only the top-of-the-line iPhone would have this feature. The other two models, now called “iPhone 7s” and “iPhone 7s Plus”, would still need cables to perform the recharge.
Also according to Kuo, wireless charging generates an increase in the internal temperature of the device and it is therefore expected that the 3D Touch module of the new iPhone will have an extra graphite lamination, to avoid malfunctions. This new component could be up to $ 5 more expensive, confirming the rumors of an above average price.
It is still unclear what type of wireless charging will be used. There are two possibilities: the first is a system similar to what already exists on the market, in which it is necessary to touch the cell phone on some base or surface (which comes in the device's own box). The second, much more innovative, is the possibility of recharging the iPhone without touching anything (the device would come internally with an electromagnetic wave receiving device).
It seems not, but there are still seven months to go. At this rate, the keynote will not be free
