Leaked iPhone 8 Schematic With Vertical Dual-Lens Camera, Wireless Charging? [Image]

An alleged iPhone 8 schematic leaked today features a dual-lens vertically aligned rear camera and hints at wireless charging. With that in mind, we have to suggest a dose of cynicism here, but this new leak of supposed iPhone 8 schematics does jive well with information appearing elsewhere.

Spotted via Twitter account @OnLeaks amongst others, this new leak comes in the form of a schematic that clearly depicts an iPhone with the vertical twin-camera configuration we have seen pop up of late as well as a large area that could potentially be space for a wireless charging component to live.

Showing the interior of the device, the drawing appears to match many recently leaked design schematics while hinting at the following rumored features of iPhone 8:

  • Vertically stacked rear cameras—Redesigned lenses could better support iPhone 8’s rumored augmented reality features while possibly improve depth-of-field photography (and other shooting modes) in landscape orientation. An LED flash, positioned between the two vertically stacked lenses, appears to be built right into the camera bulge itself. Yesterday’s iPhone 8 dummy showed noise-cancelling microphone in the camera bulge.
  • No rear Touch ID—Contrary to earlier reports, this design drawing does not indicate that a fingerprint sensor will be relocated to the backside like some Android phones. Assuming the schematic is legitimate, Apple may have managed to integrate Touch ID into the display assembly after all. And if that’s the case, then we’re potentially looking at a future iPhone with a nearly full-screen face.
  • Wireless charging—You may be asking yourself, “Well, if that large circular area on the back isn’t for Touch ID, what’s it for then?” As I’ve personally commented on other claimed iPhone 8 technical drawings, it’s probably a wireless charging coil or conductor (the leakster claims iPhone 8 supports wireless charging within five meters).
Aside from these and other rumored features, iPhone 8 is said to use a 5.8-inch curved OLED screen packed into a casing roughly the size of a 4.7-inch iPhone.

The device is widely expected to introduce an overhauled industrial design with all-glass front and back and a stainless steel frame holding the two sheets of glass together.
We just hope that there are at least some surprises left when Tim Cook takes to his stage to announce the new iPhones in September.
