Apple’s iPhone 4 had a combination of a metal frame and glass back with a more square design, according to a recent report a similar design will be used for the 2020 iPhones.
The news comes from Apple Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who has revealed that next years iPhone will have a metal frame with a segmented design, similar to the iPhone 4.
We predict that the new 2H20 iPhone design will change significantly […] The metal frame and the front and rear 2/2.5D glass are still used, but the metal frame surface will be changed to a similar design to the iPhone 4, replacing the current surface design.
This would be totally different than this years iPhone 11 which features a rounded design, Apple is expected to make major design changes next year. We are also expecting Apple to remove the notch in the 2020 iPhones.
