With just several weeks to go before Apple executives take the stage at San Jose’s McEnery Convention Center for this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, a purported “leaked” schematic which claims to show the potential design elements of the company’s next iPhone … has surfaced on the web.
According to MacRumors it is not yet clear if the image –said to have been found on Chinese social network Weibo and tweeted by OnLeaks (as well as a number of other industry leakers)– ”is legitimate,” but it does appear to match “many previously-leaked design schematics and rumors,” it says.

If it is accurate, though, the technical drawing could corroborate recent speculation that Apple’s next-generation iPhone will feature a dual-lens, vertical-positioned camera module – that could be capable of producing 3D imagery and/or enabling the creation of VR-style experiences.
In addition, the leaked image would also appear to depict the exact region in which the company may be planning to include its long-talked about wireless charging tech, with this week’s anonymously-leaked schematic -which surfaced Wednesday- showing a round-rect that could one day become the home of a charging base (similar to the one found on the back of the Apple Watch, today).
Apple is currently expected to unveil what many are expecting to be its 10th anniversary iPhone, at one of its special events reportedly set to take place at its multi-billion dollar campus – Apple Park, this fall.
