Apple iPhone 8 and new Apple Watch 3 could wirelessly charge simultaneously

iPhone leaker Benjamin Geskin reveals all about Apple's OLED iPhone 8

With Apple, Samsung under pressure to amaze, what new smartphone features will we see later this year?

Although Apple may announce three new iPhone models at the event next month, it remains to be seen when they will each become available for sale. With the iPhone 8 expected to feature a wraparound display, an effective rebooting of the iPhone concept, it seems that the developer recognizes this reality. New #iPhone 8 leaks, rumors, render, and concept designs have been surfacing online nearly every week.

The report stated that Apple has not yet confirmed the event. The other two models, which are 7s and 7s Plus, would be similar to the iPhone 7.

The WSJ's report comes a few days after one from the New York Times stating the iPhone 8 will be "priced at around $999".

In a report by Macotakara, the Japanese publication claimed that the iPhone 8 wireless charging feature will use a slower standard charging profile of 7.5 watts, which is half the speed of the Qi 1.2 standard of 15 watts. The 3D sensors can generate a "FaceID" by scanning the user's face.

The wireless charger may be used to charge the Apple Watch as well alongside the iPhone according to the Japanese blog.

He writes, 'For optimized promotional effect, we think Apple may unveil the three models simultaneously in September, though the launch date of the OLED version may trail that of LCD models, and supply tightness may not improve before 1H18'. You want to know what's that secret, about the new iPhone version?

In other news, insider Johny Srouji sold 10,019 shares of Apple stock in a transaction that occurred on Tuesday, May 30th. Along those lines, I also expect the iPhone 7s Plus to start at $769 for the 64GB model, with the 256GB version being priced at $869 - again, coming in at similar price points to the now available 32GB and 128GB iPhone 7 Plus models, respectively. Industry experts say that the phone is also going to boast a facial recognition system that is beyond anything the company's competitors can come up with.

Some analysts think Apple won't even call the new gadget the iPhone 8 and it will be instead called the iPhone Pro.

"Reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has also put the iPhone 8's memory at 3GB of RAM, while the larger iPhone 7s Plus is expected to remain at 3GB RAM and the smaller iPhone 7s will continue to offer 2GB RAM".
