A new set of purported leaked schematics photo believed to be for the upcoming iPhone 8 smartphone from Apple gets spotted online.
The new leaked photo was posted online by famed tipster, OnLeaks, and newcomer Benjamin Geskin. It shows a detailed representation on what fans can expect in the next iPhone from Apple - if the picture turns out to be legit that is.
First up, the purported schematic photo for the iPhone 8 shows a different arrangement for its back (main) camera. According to Forbes, the dual camera setup of the next handset is going to be placed vertically instead of the usual horizontal placement.
It was also claimed on the leaked schematic photo that some of the key features of the iPhone, particularly the front camera and Touch ID, are going to be moved. These features are going to be integrated under the front screen - main display - of the iPhone 8.
Another interesting feature pointed out on the latest iPhone 8 leak is the possibility of wireless charging - the circular component inside the handset as noted by Forbes.
The inclusion of wireless charging feature in future iPhone handsets should not come as much of a surprise. Powermat Chief Executive Officer, Elad Dubzinski, has slipped in a recent press release that "wireless charging will become a standard feature in the next iPhone, [so] we are finally at the threshold of mainstream adoption."
Meanwhile, the other leaked image for the iPhone 8, which shows the back casing, seems to strongly back up the claims that the next-generation smartphone will have vertical dual-cameras. As can be seen on Slash Leaks, the case has a vertical slit that goes perfectly well with the camera module of the handset.
However, it should be noted that Apple has yet to release any official statement regarding these leaks. With that being said, it's highly advisable to take these with a tiny pinch of salt and consider them as mere rumors until proven otherwise.
