Rumor Suggests New Apple’s iPhone 8 Will Be All Glass
New iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus might come in all glass bodies. Recent report suggested, the whole casing off the iPhone 8 will apparently be made of glass, this is to support wireless charging on Apple’s new iPhone.
The news comes in a report from Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities who has received information from Apple’s supply chain.
We believe one of the reasons why new iPhones will switch from metal casing to glass casing is to support wireless charging. In order to ensure a superior performance, we believe it is most appropriate for EMS suppliers to develop and make the wireless charger because then a comprehensive test can be conducted. As Hon Hai needs to deploy most resources to develop and produce OLED iPhone, we expect Pegatron will be the exclusive supplier of the wireless charger.
One model of Apple’s new iPhone 8 is expected to come with an OLED display. There will be two versions of the iPhone 8 Plus, one will have an LCD display the other an OLED display and the iPhone 8 is expected to feature an LCD display.
