iPhone 8 to feature Glass Design with Stainless Steel Frame [Rumor]


According to the report from DigiTimes, iPhone 8 to have the glass design with stainless steel frame like iPhone 4 design rather than aluminum back cover design. That is Apple's next-generation iPhone 8 is expected to adopt a stainless steel forging process for its new chassis frame instead of traditional CNC machining. Component orders are expected to be shared between Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) and US-based Jabil.

As earlier KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has already predicted that iPhone 8 Apple will switch to a glass casing for the next generation iPhone 8 in order to support wirelesscharging.
Next generation 2017 iPhone is said to include many new feature like wireless charging, OLED display, glass casing, 3D camera, bezel less and more. So iPhone 8 might be the great phone ever.


The next-generation iPhone is expected to abandon its conventional aluminum back cover design and will adopt a new design using two reinforced glass panes and a metal frame in the middle. The metal bezel will be made of stainless steel using a forging process to enhance its sturdiness and reduce costs and manufacturing time.

Apple's iPhone 4 used a stainless steel frame also supplied by Foxconn and Jabil.Sources from the upstream supply chain pointed out that the cost of the forging process is 30-50% cheaper than the current unibody CNC machine process, while quality control is also more stable.

So for the manufacturing of the next-generation iPhone, Apple recently added Wistron as a new assembler, joining Foxconn and Pegatron Technology.
