Wireless charging is not exactly a new technology: a handful of flagship smartphones released in recent times support the feature, after all. This year, it appears Apple is finally implementing wireless charging in the upcoming iPhones, which will reportedly come in as many as three variants.
This information came from none other than Ming-Chi Kuo, a KGI Securities analyst who is known to be a reliable source. According to Kuo, all three models of the iPhone will come with wireless charging, although it still remains to be seen if Apple’s implementation of the technology will be any different from other smartphones in the market.
It’s no secret that 2017 will be a big year for the iPhone: it’s the 10th anniversary of the device. According to rumours, Apple will unveil successors to the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, and in addition to these two models, there will be an even higher-end model with a 5.8-inch curved OLED display.
Other than that, the next iPhones will reportedly sport a new design as well, which is really a given – the iPhone’s design language hasn’t seen an update since the days of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which were launched back in 2014. Rumours are suggesting that Apple will return to a glass front and back construction for the upcoming iPhones too.
The next iPhones are showing a lot of promise, and these early information are certainly interesting, to say the least. Hopefully, these three iPhone models – if proven to be that many – will live up to expectations.
