iPhone 8 to have design similarities to iPhone4

This is pretty interesting, because one of the features of the Qualper phone is the very Apple-like metal bands around the outside. The reversion is something to note - and probably means that it will be thicker than the immediately previous models.

It's also a report from Ming-Chi Kuo, who has an excellent track-record of accurate predictions.


KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, a highly reliable source for Apple rumors, has released a new report (via 9to5Mac) claiming the iPhone 8 could come with a glass and metal design reminiscent of the iPhone 4 and 4S.

The back of the iPhone 8 will reportedly be made of glass to match the front. Furthermore, Kuo says high-end models could come with stainless steel frames as opposed to aluminum. Again, another throwback to the iPhone 4 and 4S, which had stainless steel frames sandwiched between its glass front and back.

Lower-end models could come with aluminum frames. Apple originally used aluminum on the first iPhone, switched to plastic for the iPhone 3G and 3GS, stainless steel for the iPhone 4 and 4S and then returned to aluminum with unibody designs for the iPhone 5 and everything after.
