Just when we were getting used to the latest iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro's boba-like designs, there are already rumours about an all-new, or should we say, old design for future iPhones.
According to an Apple analyst, Kuo Ming-Chi, who has had a fairly accurate track record of predicting Apple-related products long before the official announcements, the phones we see next year could look like the iPhone 4
Oh, the nostalgia.
reported Kuo's latest note, which stated that in 2020, the newer iPhone's "metal frame surface will be changed to a similar design to the iPhone 4, replacing the current surface design".
In other words, the current rounded frame Apple has stuck to since the iPhone X may take a backward turn to the old squared edges some users preferred.
The metal frame will reportedly be designed to minimise any impact the metal could have on the phone’s high-frequency transmission.
Besides that, Kuo also predicted that the 2020 iPhones could support 5G
, as well as OLED models with feature 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch displays
, as opposed to the existing 5.8-inches and 6.5-inches sizes.
Now, of course, these predictions are not 100 per cent confirmed.
But if they were true, the new look could finally convert more new users to buy the new iPhone again, since some of us have been complaining about how iPhone designs never really change from model to model.
What other new features would you like to see on the next iPhone?
