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.
