The head of the Catcher confirmed the rumors about the all glass body of the new iPhone, which will be released in 2017
The head of the company Catcher Technology, a key Apple supplier, has confirmed the future of a radical redesign of the iPhone. We are talking about a fully glass body, which earlier reported KGI analyst Ming Chi Kuo, often publishes reliable information.
“As far as I know, only one model [the iPhone] will move to the glass case next year, – told reporters the head of the Catcher Allen horn during the discussion of the quarterly results. – I don’t think it will affect the profit Catcher, as the glass casing still need a robust metal base, which needs to be created using advanced technologies and be cheaper than the current model.”
Thus, Catcher confirmed the upcoming Apple’s rejection of the use of the aluminum body in favor of an all-glass housing. However, to ensure the necessary strength verge iPhone 7 will probably remain metal, but the front and back panel are made of glass. This decision will help to get rid of the plastic inserts on top and bottom, annoying fans, the perfect design, and improve the reception quality of the received signal. Glass is heavier than aluminium, but the weight of the smartphone will not grow much – Apple is rumored to use the device more lightweight and energy-efficient AMOLED-display.
Recall that Apple has used glass as a material for the back cover of the smartphone in 2010, the iPhone 4 in 2011 in the iPhone 4s. It is believed that next year the metal body will not be something unique. Many budget models from the different manufacturers today produce shells made of aluminum alloy, so Apple is working on such a radical innovation. At the moment nobody knows how cupertinos plan to create a glass case, so you have to be limited only by their imagination and the imagination of designers.
Earlier, informed sources said that the display in iPhone 7 will occupy the entire surface of the front panel. The fingerprint sensor, speaker, and other elements will be built into the display. Coupled with the glass housing such innovation allows to speak of a “radical new design” of the smartphone.
