This year Apple is planning to release three new models of the iPhone. The first will have a screen diagonal of 4.7 inches, the second — 5.5 inches, and the third is 5.8 inches. The DigiTimes managed to find out some new details about the next generation iPhone.
It is argued that the largest version will receive a housing made of toughened glass and edged frame made of stainless steel. The 4.7-inch device will retain the aluminum alloy used in the iPhone 7. These data were received from representatives of the supply chain. As for modifications with 5.5-inch screen, its design has not yet been approved by the manufacturer.
Suppliers of cases for the largest version of the iPhone 8 selected the Taiwanese company Foxconn and American Jabil Circuit, while Catcher Technology will be traditionally put housing out of aluminium alloy.
It is reported that the place of the supplier of metal casings for Apple devices trying to take Casetek, a subsidiary of Pegatron Technology. It is actively provided to the Corporation engineering samples of the hulls and created a new production base to carry out the orders of the “Apple” giant. Still Apple is not purchased from Casetek products in large quantity.
It is expected that 5.8-inch iPhone 8 will use OLED display, which will increase the cost of the smartphone to more than $ 1,000.
