Cupertino-based Apple Inc. is mulling to bring back metal casing for its next flagship device. Citing a report privy to the plans of Apple, the rumored 6.1-inch smartphone will have a metal chassis.
The rumored smartphone is set to launch by 2018 with an elegant and classy casing similar to iPhone 7 series released back in 2016. What is exciting about the company’s rumored smartphone is that it will sport a black metal casing in various colors.
Furthermore, the same source claims that Casetek, an Apple supplier, will provide the LCD for the iPhones. Casetek is a subsidiary company of Pegatron.
Apple’s LCD provider was the same company that produces the aluminium cases of iPad. Apple users claim that the new iPhone will sport a shallow metal frame. Aside from this, there’s also a report that claims that Casetek is doing an experiment for the iPhone’s new casing designs for 2018.
What we know so far is that Apple is mulling to launch three iPhones. Of the three iPhones, two will sport OLED displays, taking a cue from the recently launched iPhone X. The third rumored iPhone will have the same specs with iPhone X which is a 5.8-inch screen, and the other iPhone will have a 6.3-inch display.
Nomora, a Japan-based financial company, has suggested that iPhone models would share the same specs with that of iPhone X. One of the rumored features was the Face ID. However, the new phone would feature a dual SIM support. There’s also a possibility that a new model will have a single camera but without Apple’s Force Touch.
Also, Apple’s rumored phone is expected to be sold between $650 and $900. While the specs keep the Apple users exciting, the iPhone’s color was also part of the leaked details on the internet.
