One of the biggest features of iPhone 8 is confirmed by JP Morgan
If you are Apple iPhone fan and waiting for iPhone 8 then this news will give a great relief. One of the biggest features of iPhone has been confirmed by JPMorgan.

JPMorgan's note focused on Broadcom but said the company's new wireless charging chip will be included in the next iPhone. Wireless charging is one of the features which is being used by Samsung in their flagship phones, but it is still awaited from the Apple side. All though the technology was expected in the last year’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus but unfortunately it didn’t go through.

In some recent reports published online on the basis of the patent filed by Apple, dual-frequency patch antennas may be used for wireless power transfer at microwave frequencies. A transmitter with wireless power transfer circuitry and a patch antenna will be required to wirelessly transfer power to a receiver, built-in iPhone.
Apple’s technology requires a suitable wireless communications link at frequencies of 700 MHz to 2700 MHz, local area network link operating at 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz or anything else that may involve millimeter wave communications. Millimeter wave IEEE 802.11 ad spectrum at 60 GHz, which is used by WiGig communications can be used as well.

“Electronic devices often include wireless circuitry. For example, cellular telephones, computers, and other devices often contain antennas and wireless transceivers for supporting wireless communications. Some devices include circuitry to support wireless charging operations,” Apple’s patent reads.

Other than wireless charging iPhone 8 is expected to get some of the best features, and two of them are below:

Display of iPhone 8

Speaking if the iPhone 8’s display, 2017 will mark the first year Apple will shift from an LCD panel to an OLED panel in the iPhone.

Like Samsung’s class-leading Galaxy phones, Apple’s iPhone 8 will feature an OLED panel. Also like Samsung’s recent Galaxy phones, the iPhone 8 display is expected to be a flexible panel that curves on either side at the edges. As we noted above, however, we expect the curve to be much more subtle — just a slight downward bend for styling.

Biometrics of iPhone 8

In addition to a revolutionary new Touch ID scanner that is invisible to the user, a fresh new report from Ming-Chi Kuo states that Apple’s new iPhone 8 will include a facial recognition feature. Here’s a note from his report:

Judging by the bio-recognition patents that Apple has applied for, we believe it is leaning toward facial recognition technology rather than iris recognition. However, we note that the technical challenges of facial recognition include: (1) algorithms; (2) hardware design; and (3) the build-out of a database for verification and authentication, which could be time-consuming. As such, before Apple can fully replace the fingerprint system with facial recognition, a combination of the two steps of bio-recognition could be a valid solution for enhancing transactions security.

While it’s unlikely that Touch ID will go anywhere anytime soon, the addition of facial recognition would add yet another layer of security to the iPhone.
