Ever since the news of Apple iPhone 8 design revamp was suggested, rumours about it have started making rounds on the internet. Even leaks have also started circulating.
According to the latest rumour, Apple will be releasing the iPhone in 2017 entirely made of glass. It also suggests that the company will drop the aluminium casing which is currently used for iPhone. The new is coming from the Apple’s metal supplier.
Several rumours are also pointing towards the release of iPhone later this year and the design will resemble the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, notes Mirror.co.uk.
However, reports claim that Apple is planning to completely revamp the design element of iPhone. It intends to include new screen technologies and bring an entirely new look.
It was also speculated that the Taiwanese company that supplies metal casing for Apple, would lose business.
CEO of Catcher Technology Allen Horng said that the company would continue to supply products. He also said that apparently Apple will be bringing in the glass design, notes News.com.
“As far as I know, only one [iPhone] model will adopt glass casing next year,” said Horng.
“I don’t think this move will have an impact on Catcher’s revenue as glass casing still needs a durable metal frame which requires advanced processing technology,” he added.
According to leaked images of iPhone 7 will be 138.30×67.12×7.1mm while iPhone 7 Plus will measure 158.22×77.94×7.33mm. Reports note that iPhone 7 will sport 3,100mAh battery and it is 12.5 percent bigger than the iPhone 6S Plus. This means the phone would stay powered longer, and it could also mean that the casing would be thicker.
A Chinese site has posted images of a gold handset earlier this month and it is expected to be released in September. A little growth in sales was reported in January however, a downturn is expected in the current quarter.
