The new iPhone 11 have just arrived on the market, but we are already thinking of the next generation of iPhone by starting from very interesting forecasts: according to the analyst Kuo, iPhone 12 will have a very different design than the last models, it will be more like iPhone 4.
iPhone 12 as iPhone 4?
Everything could come from the need to increase network reception of iPhone 12. In fact, according to the analyst, the next generation of iPhone by will have a frame made of metal, but with a different construction process, able to shield the antennas much less. Of course, to protect the rear and the front there will still be reinforced glasses, but the overall aesthetics of the smartphone will still be different, much more similar to that of the iPhone 4, precisely because of a redesigned design:
"We expect the new iPhone 2020 design to change significantly. The metal frame and the front and rear 2 / 2.5D glass are still used, but the surface of the metal frame will be changed to a design more similar to the iPhone 4. "
This novelty could however be reflected on costs of the melafonini. In fact, the introduction of the new metal frame could increase the cost of the components of the iPhone 12 structure, therefore the price of the devices could increase. According to Kuo, however, there would be no need to worry: the change of design of the new iPhone by, together with the presence of 5G, should represent for Apple a new impetus in terms of smartphone sales (although, to be honest, iPhone 11 Pro already seems to have started well).
