Many are still “digesting” the design and features of iPhones 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. But as we all know, the world of technology is nonstop and the focus of rumors is now Ma's next generation of smartphones.
More than a bunch of new features, such as the possible implementation of 5G technology and Touch ID under the screen, the analyst at TF International Securities, Ming Chi-Kuo, pointed out today that Apple could "significantly change" the design of the next models, as released by MacRumors.
More precisely, Kuo has suggested that future appliances will have a new metal frame with a “more complex design” which combines the front and rear glass in a way similar to iPhone 4, released in 2010.
We expect the new iPhone design of 2020 to change significantly (). The metal frame and the front and rear 2 / 2.5D glass will continue to be used, but the metal frame will change to a similar design to the iPhone 4, replacing the current surface design.
Such a change would not be totally unexpected, as the new iPads Pro already have this more “square” design; But surely it will be interesting to see if Apple really lives up to the iPhone 4 if these rumors prove to be true in the future.
To the anxious people who are already freaking out about what an iPhone would look like, the designer Ben geskin published a little while ago surrender from Kuo's assumptions. Check out:
As a result of the possible design change in upcoming iPhones, Kuo believes that the costs of the metal frame and the glass chassis will increase significantly, and may rise to 60% (frame) and up to 50% (glass). Nevertheless, the analyst predicts that the new design combined with the likely new features and technologies we have commented will be an “important selling feature” for Apple, which may sell 85 million units next year, according to his estimates.
As we reported, the analyst also expects future handsets to offer new sizes: 5.4 ″, 6.1 ″ and 6.7 ″ all with OLED displays. If all this really comes up next year, we will really see a dramatic change in the look of iPhones.
