The report also revealed that Apple will also fit an iris scanner in iPhone 8, the feature which debuted in the Galaxy Note 7 and never seen after.
Separately, a Japanese report once again tips that a 5-inch iPhone model may be unveiled this year alongside the regular iPhone models.
It's another week and there are some new rumours to ponder over, as a blog now points out, citing supply chain sources, that this year's iPhone models will not include a USB-C cable nor a headphone jack adapter in the box.
As for the name, it'll probably be called the iPhone 8, but some say Apple might break tradition and call it "iPhone X".
However, this advanced charging technology does come with a catch as it could cause the phone to heat up a little more than usual. Apparently, Apple plans to start production earlier than in previous years and has requested its chip and component suppliers to begin trial production, inspection and prepare inventories.

That's because it's been suggested the iPhone 8 will need an additional accessory in order for its wireless charging abilities to be utilised, something that's sure to put an extra dent in your already weeping wallet. According to the tipster, the wireless charging device inside the iPhone gets incredibly hot.
Media reports have also said that the iPhone 8 might have "OLED panel bonding" which Samsung has been using for its display in certain models. There is no stopping to these rumors and leaks until September when the new iPhone will go official.
The iPhone 8 is expected to have a much bigger battery than the current iPhone 7 line, and may also feature 3D-sensing technology, which could be used for facial recognition or some form of augmented reality application. But it's not assured that if the display will grow up or the iPhone will shrink down for a display setting of the mobile phone.
As rumored, the iPhone 8 will not have a home button. The report comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who has a track record of being correct with iPhone predictions. These models are not only limited to their OLED Display but will also be having a 3D Touch Sensor, which obviously makes them more expensive than other models.
