iPhone 5 to Drop Rear Glass Surface, to go on Sale in Summer – Report

by Jeffry on March 7, 2011

According to a Chinese source, Apple is changing the rear part of iPhone 5 to aluminum which was used for first iPhone’s instead of glass or might adopt the design similar to iPod touch 4G, after facing lots of issues with white paint and scratches on rear glass surface, reported Taiwan’s Economic Daily News.

Conceptual iPhone 5

Decision to design iPhone 5 similar to iPod touch instead of using glass was arrived after receiving number of complaints. Apple seems to stop damages from scratching, issues after painting it white (for white iPhone 5), weight of glass and want to make it more durable instead.

Antenna will be designed just behind Apple Logo so that cellular and Wi-Fi signal can penetrate easily. Side exposed steel antennas seem to be abandoned, as designed in iPhone 4. The report also confirms that the next generation iPhone5 will be galloping on multi-processor A5, as in iPad2.

iPhone 5 seems to be released July or June at WWDC 2011 same as past years. We will update you more tidbits on iPhone 5. Just follow us on twitter or join our facebook fanpage.

    I love the mock up. However, I don’t know how signals would get through the aluminum back? They needed a black plastic strip on the original iPhone as well, and on the iPad 3G. I know they have overcome black strips with Wi-Fi somehow, with the new iPod Touch and the Wi-Fi only iPad, but it seems that 3G needs more transparency…
