Apple Plans to Release New Curved Glass iPhone Design

Apple authority Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities is expecting the company to release an iPhone with a curved glass casing and a curved 5.8-inch AMOLED display in 2017. Moving away from metal casing designs, Apple will reportedly take the glass-backed design of iPhone 4/4s and improve it in building the 2017 iPhone.

“We expect the 2017 new iPhone model to adopt a structural design similar to that of iPhone 4/ 4s, meaning it will be equipped with glass on both the front and back sides, and a metal frame surrounded the edges,” Kuo told. “The difference is that the new model will likely come with a curved screen and curved glass casing, with other important features including a 5.8-inch AMOLED display, wireless charging, and more biometric recognitions (facial or iris). Given the curved design, the new model may look smaller than an existing 5.5-inch iPhone.”

Depending on AMOLED availability, Kuo believes Apple may also launch 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch LCD-based iPhones alongside the new 5.8-inch AMOLED iPhone — making the AMOLED iPhone a high-end option.
