The best Apple analyst on the planet KGI’s securities is at it again and this time he seems to have dug up more controversial news about the company’s plans for iPhones. The Apple analyst claims that the iPhone will be seeing a major redesign in 2017, suggests a report in 9to5Mac.
It is not clear how the tech giant will construct the phone completely with glass – a material considered ideal for wireless charging and better antenna reception. The new Apple’s iPhone 8 will also feature the much-speculated AMOLED display.
The new smartphone will be thinner and lighter so as to blend well with the slight weight glass composition will bring to the device. Kuo does not believe that drop test issues will be a roadblock in Apple’s decision making, given the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s already relied heavily on glass front and back.
It is not first time that Apple designs a mobile of glass material. But also this iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s featured an all glass design. Earlier leak suggest that iPhone 7 might feature dual lens camera set-up, 3 GB RAM, and no headphone jack. According to some reports, Apple is working on a wireless Beats headphone for the next iPhone device.
