Barely a dozen shoppers queue for launch of Apple's iPhone 8

Barely a dozen shoppers queue for launch of Apple's iPhone 8

The iPhone 8 is the first Apple handset to support wireless charging and needs that coil (and the Broadcom chip that handles it) to operate.

HCL Infosystems today announced that it will offer the new generation iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

However, Hold noted, "The Apple intender base is fairly evenly split between which device they plan to purchase, with the X and the 8 commanding equal interest at 25 percent of those planning to purchase a device, and the iPhone 7 showing slightly more interest at 29 percent".


Along with the A11 Bionic processor, iFixit found 2 GB RAM, Qualcomm's Snapdragon X16 LTE modem and Gigabit LTE RF transceiver, Skyworks quad-band GSM power amplifier module, NXP secure NFC module, a Broadcom wireless charging chip, and more. The iPhone 8's battery connector has common fasteners, but up to four different driver types will be needed for many repairs. Matching last year's battery life is nice, but there will still be people who wish Apple used the same battery and extended usability time instead. Summary - 6 of 10, which is also good, if you remember "unit" Essential Phone and the Quartet have a Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Flash memory, which Toshiba released iPhone 8, is on the reverse side of the Board (pictured below circled in yellow frame). Customers will be able to pre-order iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus beginning 22nd September 2017 at their partner stores, and both will be available in stores starting on Friday, 29th September, 2017.

You can check out the rest of the iPhone 8 tear down at the iFixit website. Or will you wait until November 3 for the far more daring, big-screened, bezel-free iPhone X?
