Apple Might Bring Back the iPhone 4's Design to Its 2020 Model
Could this be the end of the tech giant’s iconic three-year design cycle?
Following the latest release of Apple‘s new iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, it has been rumored that the tech giant is currently working on redesigning the next model. According to MacRumors, the 2020 iPhone might feature a metal frame design similar to the iPhone 4 which first debuted back in 2010.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has included in his report that “Apple will change its flagship iPhone design significantly next year” where the new models will feature “a more complex segmentation design, new trenching and injection molding procedures, and sapphire or glass cover assembly to protect the trench injection molding structure.”
Kuo also states that the sizes of the 2020 iPhones will range from 5.4 inches to 6.1 inches along with OLED displays. He also believes that the devices will include a rear-facing time-of-flight 3D camera “that will support augmented reality and improve the camera experience.”
