A Taiwanese company contracted to assemble Apple phones has spilled the beans on a brand-new feature for the upcoming iPhone 8.
According, to Nikkei, manufacturer Winstron has revealed the iPhone 8 will feature wireless, waterproof charging.
“Assembly process for the previous generations of [iPhones] have not changed much, though new features like waterproof and wireless charging now require some different testing, and waterproof function will alter the assembly process a bit,” CEO Robert Hwang told reporters on Wednesday.
Apple itself has yet to reveal this functionality, and hasn’t responded with comment - Winstron has jumped the gun, giving Apple fans something to be excited about.
Nikkei adds that Winstron will be producing the 5,5” device, splitting production with Foxconn Technology Group.
Meanwhile, the company is already producing iPhones in India, delivering on Apple’s promise to take production to the subcontinent.
The iPhone 8 is slated to come in two sizes: 5,5” and 5,8”, the latter of which will feature an AMOLED display.
It is also expected to come in just two capacities, with 32GB and 128GB giving way for 64GB and 256GB.
