iPhone 8 to Get Glass Black Panel and Support Wireless Charging

According to the latest report shared by a reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the next-generation iPhone will feature a glass back panel to support wireless charging. The expert believes that all 2017 iPhones will get glass back panels and that Pegatron will supply Apple with wireless chargers for these new handsets. Another reason for Apple to completely change the look of the iPhone 8 is Jonathan Ive’s desire to create a phone that looks like a sheet of glass.

We believe one of the reasons why new iPhones will switch from metal casing to glass casing is to support wireless charging.


As Hon Hai needs to deploy most resources to develop and produce OLED iPhone, we expect Pegatron will be the exclusive supplier of the wireless charger.

Apple is expected to make the iPhone 8 completely different from its predecessors to mark the 10th anniversary of the lineup.
