According to Min-Chi Kuo, Apple will breathe life into the design of iPhone 4. In 2020, it will release the iPhone in a new case made of glass and metal, some elements of which will be borrowed from the iPhone 4, released almost 10 years ago. The case of the next iPhone will consist of a metal frames and glass panels, but instead of streamlined frames in the style of the iPhone X they will have sharp edges, like the iPhone 4.
The analyst notes that the new design will increase the cost of the iPhone case by 50-60%, which will increase the income of Apple suppliers. But whether the transition to a new design will affect the cost of the iPhone, the analyst did not specify. He only added that iPhone 2020 model year shipments will be approximately 10 million more compared to the iPhone 11 trio.
