Wireless battery charging
Though it has yet to really take off, some modern phones have launched with wireless charging as its main gimmick. The likelihood of its implementation is slim, but the trend it would set could propel the technology into the mainstream in the smartphone sector.
A double-digit megapixel camera
The Nokia 1020 packs an impressive 41-megapixels snap from its high-resolution camera. And considering Apple prides its iPhone as being one of the most popular de facto point-and-click cameras on the market — albeit with a high markup — surely the company would want to capitalize on this even more? Expect more megapixels, but not mega-megapixels.
Stronger glass display
Later iterations of the iPhone came with a glass front and back panel. The trouble is this more often than not led to shattered devices where it had been dropped on the floor. The glass used, dubbed Gorilla Glass, developed by Corning, gets stronger in each device iteration. But still, accidents happen and above all else, Apple knows it.
