Apple leak confirms ‘all glass’ new iPhone
Last month the world’s most accurate Apple tipster revealed the company is working on a radical ‘all glass’ new iPhone. The news was met with cynicism and excitement in equal measure, and now a major Apple supplier has confirmed it…
Speaking at its annual shareholder meeting Allen Horng, chairman and chief executive of a long time iPhone chassis maker Catcher Technology, said Apple will make its 2017 iPhone using a glass casing.
Breaking down the radical shift, Horng said using a glass chassis would prove expensive and that Catcher requires “advanced processing technology” to pull it off. He also explained that the chassis would need to be reinforced by a metal frame. The move is expected to go far beyond Apple’s previous glass backed iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S and rival Samsung’s recent Galaxy S and Note lines by using a single piece of glass for the whole exterior. Pull that off and Apple would certainly have a smartphone that looked like no other.
But it isn’t all good news- I know, only one model will adopt glass casing next year and giving the range pricing that would suggest the iPhone 8Plus and iPhone Pro.
