KGI analysts claim all 2017 devices iPhone will receive wireless charging support. The sensor '3D Touch' for iPhone 8 will cost more.
KGI Securities Lead Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, in his reports to clients that fell into the hands of the web portal 'MacRumors', claims that all new models iPhone this year will receive support for wireless charging. At the same time, the report warns that the production cost of the improved module '3D Touch' for iPhone 8 is likely to increase by 30 to 50 percent.
A report released yesterday from FastCo claims the company Apple will shift the increased cost of manufacturing display panels AMOLED and other device hardware components iPhone 8 to consumers. and concludes that the final sales price iPhone 8 will be able to break the $ 1,000 bar in the US.
According to Kuo, the module '3D Touch' for device iPhone 8 will use lamination in the form of an additional graphite layer to improve temperature control and prevent overheating of the device.
Why should the device iPhone 8 overheat?
Because the use of wireless charging technology will inevitably lead to an increase in the temperature of the internal components of the smartphone.
And since the device iPhone will have an all-glass body, given that the thermal conductivity of glass is worse than that of metal (unlike aluminum, which removes heat better), it will be necessary to find an engineering solution to remove excess heat, because we don't want to be left with a brand new device iPhone 8 that is not working because of overheating problems with the module '3D Touch'.
Here are excerpts from Kuo's talk:
'It is unlikely that an ordinary user will notice the difference, but there is a need for lamination in the form of an additional graphite layer to provide better thermal insulation and, accordingly, more stable operation of the device; all this is due to the replacement in the use of FPCB technology in favor of using a film that is more sensitive to temperature effects in the '3D touch' module in iPhone with OLED display. '
The production of an improved module '3D Touch' for device iPhone 8 will cost the company Apple $ 5 more.
This report confirms claims made yesterday that using a OLED screen and other hardware enhancements could make iPhone 8 the most expensive iPhone device in history. .
Kuo's report adds that device iPhone 8 will offer users a wider range of gestures' 3D Touch ', but the analyst did not provide any details on what exactly users should expect from using the new module' 3D Touch '.
In addition to device iPhone 8 based on OLED screen, company Apple is expected to update its existing line of devices iPhone 7 with a pair of devices this year. LCD screens measuring 4.7-inches 'iPhone 7s' and 5.5-inches 'iPhone 7s Plus'. Both LCD devices are said to have dual cameras on the back.

A report from FastCo claims the device iPhone 8 may have a 'high capacity battery'.
Another innovation of the device iPhone 8 may be the use of some kind of '3D sensor' technology, which may be used to recognize users' faces during authentication and to use augmented reality technology.
FastCo sources claim the device iPhone 8 will look like a 'sleek black monolith' because Johnny Ive is understood to be pushing his concept of seamless design iPhone with a full screen front panel and on-screen 'Home / Touch ID' buttons and all 'FaceTime' sensors and camera built into the display.
