Today DigiTimes released a report in which they claimed that Apple will use a similar design to what they used with the iPhone 4 for the iPhone 8.

In the report, they claimed that Apple will switch from the current aluminium design in favour of a similar design to what we saw before that, with a glass back and front along with a stainless steel frame along the outside.

They said the following about it:

The next-generation iPhone is expected to abandon its conventional aluminum back cover design and will adopt a new design using two reinforced glass panes and a metal frame in the middle. The metal bezel will be made of stainless steel using a forging process to enhance its sturdiness and reduce costs and manufacturing time.

We have previously seen similar reports from other sources, with reports from Foxconn employees, glass suppliers, and other claiming similar things about the iPhone 8.

A lot of reports are also claiming that Apple is looking to embed the Home/ Touch ID combo button right into the display to achieve a near bezel-free design.

The aim is to create a design that looks like a single slab of glass.

However, some have also said that the iPhone 8 will feature a curved design, however, we are unsure how likely that is to happen.

As soon as we hear more we will let you know.
