Previous rumors had suggested that the new iPhone 8 would feature an all glass casing to support wireless charging.
According to a recent report by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the new 4.7 inch iPhone 8 will support wireless charging.
Positive prospects for 2H17F new iPhone models, with potentially unprecedented replacement demand. Our rationale is as follows: (1) the OLED model may trigger replacement demand among high-end users given its completely all-new-design form factor and notably superior specs in comparison to the TFT-LCD models; and (2) the new 4.7” iPhone, featuring glass casing and wireless charging, looks well positioned to tap replacement demand at the entry level.
We previously heard that some models of the new iPhone 8 would have wireless charging, although now it looks like all models will support the feature.
Apple are expected to launch three versions of the iPhone 8 next year, a 4.7 inch models and two 5.5 inch 8 Plus models, one with an LCD display the other with an OLED display.
