analyst at KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo (Ming-Chi Kuo) recently stated the iPhone smartphone 8, which will be released next year, will support different wireless charging technology.

According to the analyst, to improve the efficiency of this technology Apple had to abandon the use of the aluminum case in favor of the all-glass shell. In the latest statement, Ming-Chi Kuo added that support wireless charging and the glass enclosure will not be the exclusive features of the older models of iPhone 8.

“The new smartphone with a display diagonal of 4.7 inches would be characterized by the presence of the glass body and support wireless charging technology, – the analyst said. – This model looks well balanced and able to spur the demand for iPhone »

Ming-Chi Kuo believes that next year Apple could set a new record for the iPhone smartphone sales. This will contribute to a completely new design and substantially improved performance.

“to predict demand for the second half of next year is difficult, since circumstances can change at any time. However, vendors are guided by iPhone shipments in the region of 120-150 million units in the second half of 2017. If we talk about the years when she iPhone 6, 6s and 7, the projections were 110-120, 100-110 and 90-100 million smartphones respectively . That is a record number of iPhone can be sold in 2017, more than 2014, when the iPhone was released 6. “
