Mini iPhone 8 To come Without Wireless charger or 3.5mm Dongle | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter




One of the main talking points for the iPhone 7 and now 8 has been the wireless charging feature it comes/is to come with.

It seems there will be a 5-inch “tweener” iPhone 8 coming in-between 2017’s 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones and from reports it seems it will have a different set of rules for charging and accessories. 

According to Makotakara, a “tweener” iPhone-- first rumored in December-- is in the works for this year. 

The plan according to the report was to find an in-between phone instead of replacing either the existing 4.7- and 5.5-inch sizes currently offered in the shape of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. It was reported to plan to borrow the dual-camera system of the larger iPhone 7 Plus, but flip the twin lenses 90-degrees.

The story is back and reports suggest that the 
5-inch iPhone is still on the roadmap. It will have a glass back panel, rather than the metal of the current iPhone design, and support wireless charging.

What could frustrate most people with plans to buy it will be the absence of the wireless charger in the box. Instead, it’s claimed, a regular USB Type-A charging cable will be bundled; if people want a wireless charger, then they’ll have to buy it separately. Apple is believed to be supporting the most recent version of the Qi standard for that, with up to 15W power transfers.

That would make sense, given Qi’s growing popularity in the market. Already supported by several generations of Samsung Android phone, the technology is also present in a number of cars, which offer wireless charging pads in the dashboard. Paired with wireless CarPlay, the site suggests, that would make it far more likely that people would use the infotainment system as they drive.



It's still not known for sure if we will indeed get this phone as Apple are yet to comment on it, but if we do, it'll join the growing list of things from Apple to be excited about this year.
