The next-generation iPhone 5 will have a completely redesigned casing once it is outed in Fall 2012.
Details of the info include the use of plastic or rubber material for the new iPhone case possibly in the form of bezel surrounding the phone’s front edges similar to iPhone 3GS which also contains a bezel around the edges. This allows the future model to join its brethren with glass face and aluminum back plate, and provides the proper aluminum case for the phone’s redesigned antenna which is expected to surround the device. The foregoing info is based on the report made by BGR which is believed to be reliable despite the changing nature of Apple rumors.
Apple’s four generations of iPhone have so far encountered various issues including signal problems, in addition to their added features. The first generation iPhone had a metal back and weighted heavier. On the other hand, the second and third generation iPhones have a plastic back. Although the new phone’s aluminum back casing may be considered as “going back in time”, other reports suggest that iPhone 5 will also have a larger or 4-inch display.
The iPhone series is a line of multimedia-enabled and internet-ready smartphones produced and marketed by Apple Inc. with the first generation iPhone released on 2007.
