I’m still enjoying the new car smell from my iPhone 7 and now they’ve started talking about the iPhone 8. Debby Wu:
The three new iPhone models to be launched next year are likely to sport glass backs supplied by China’s Biel Crystal Manufactory and Lens Technology, an industry source told the Nikkei Asian Review. Apple is preparing to unveil a made-over iPhone at the device’s 10th anniversary in 2017. The source said however, that the U.S. tech titan could change its plans for the new backs, given that it ceased production of the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 model bearing a single lens less than six months before launch.
My sources say to ignore such drivel, but hidden among fluff was this from the source.
Apple has tentatively decided that all the 5.5-inch, 5-inch and 4.7-inch models will have glass backs, departing from metal casings adopted by current iPhones…
Because aluminum doesn’t shatter but glass does. Oh, and there’s a 5-inch iPhone coming. Uh huh. Sure.
