    Looks like several leakers have been busy sharing a rumored schematic of the iPhone 8. I've pasted it below for your reference:

    What do you think? Real, or real fake? Are we looking at OLED here???

    As long as Touch ID isn't on the back, I'm fine.

    @Quis89 - yeah, it's got to be somewhere easy to use. The one thing I'm not a huge fan of on the S8 is that fingerprint sensor. Maybe Apple can come up with something better...

    Same. I'm hoping they do. With the way I use my phone at my desk, a rear finger print sensor would be hugely inconvenient. (In a "first world problems" sort of way, of course lol)

    Hoping they figure out how to put the sensor under the display but I'm starting to think Apple isn't quite ready for it yet.

    Another problem with a rear facing touchID sensor would be the millions people who use cases. I'm not one of them but I empathize with those who are!

    Case manufacturers probably will design their ware with that in mind.

    That would be ideal... but we'll see how it goes in a few months!

    I hope it's not OLED. I'm using iPhone because of the LCD display.

    OLED = burn-in.

    Is burn-in really a problem anymore? From what I've heard from people in the industry it's not really something they're concerned with.

    Screen burn-in is really a problem and even Samsung is helping with preventing it on the S8/S8+: http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreak...screen-burn-in

    If they put the FPS on the back let's hope it's placed in a similar location as LG. I love my Samsung S8+ but the sensor is dumb.

    FPS on the back wouldn't be a good look!

    Personally I think it's defi Italy going to be an OLED for the premium iPhone I model. I've also seen consistent reports that Apple can't supply enough OLED panels for both the 8 and the us/7s+ models. They'll likely make one final year of an LCD iPhone and then next cycle switch completely.

    As for wireless charging, if Apple doesn't include it in all models going forward it will continue to lag further and further behind. The technology is well established and was the norm for flagship in 2015.

    Hearing now the next phone will be the 7s with limited updates, and next year gets the "8" model. Also another rumor saying they'll release both, so the 7s in September, and then when it's ready, the 8.
    Maybe I should get that 7 Plus now!

    I have the 7+ now, so I'm going to hold off until the 8 is released.

    Hopefully they do opt for an industry standard wireless charger, but when I had other phones with wireless charging I never bought the chargers, why should I spend $50 (or in Apple's case more) for a wireless charger when a cable will do the trick. Its a nice benefit, but not a must have and if that is factor for a larger price point then forget it.

    Exactly the way I feel. I've had 3 phones that had wireless charging, but the convenience isn't worth it to me. Especially with USB-C and lightning being reversible. Long Range wireless would be worth it though.
