If rumours are to be believed, Apple is and doing away with aluminium and working on a stainless steel body for the upcoming iPhone 8. The rumoured iPhone 8 is expected to come in an all-glass rear and front and have a steel frame centre.
It is pertinent to mention that Apple will use steel (if at all) for the iPhone 8 for the first time since Apple iPhone 4S.
Apple's manufacturing partner Jabil is believed to be working on the phone's body with two reinforced glass panels, said a report in Digitimes. A stainless steel frame holds the two glass panels together.
Apple's next generation iPhone 8 is rumoured to sport a bold new design and would feature an OLED display without a bezel.
"Despite the fact that Apple's flagship iPhone lineup continues to be the best-selling smartphone series in the world, fans are anxious for something new -- and in 2017, they will get the completely overhauled iPhone design they have been waiting for," news website inquisitr.com had reported.
According to earlier media reports, alongside its usual 4.7- and 5.5-inch smartphone offerings, the company would also unveil a third model that would be priced at a higher side than iPhone 7 and would come with invisible home button, all-glass housing, and wireless charging.
