Well-known analyst KGI Ming-Chi Kuo (Ming-Chi Kuo) believe that next year Apple will not only refuse to LCD-displays in the iPhone in favor of more modern AMOLED-display, but also a complete redesign of smartphones, which will acquire the fully glass housing instead familiar to many users of the metal.
The analyst believes that Apple decided to take this step due to the fact that aluminum began to be used by many manufacturers of smart phones, and the company is no longer possible to efficiently allocate their products from the competition. However, we do not fully understand how the Apple iPhone is fully implemented in the glass case. After all, the iPhone 4 / 4s are also used glass front and back panels, but they are united by a metal frame which increases the strength and rigidity of the body. Although analysts believe that a complete transition to the glass does not affect the strength of the new smartphone.
In addition, Ming-Chi Kuo has once again confirmed the rumors about Apple’s transition to the use of the AMOLED panels-in iPhone, low weight which should compensate for the heavy glass enclosure smartphone. Their thickness is less likely a positive impact on the dimensions of the gadget.
At the end of last week, informants reported the agreement between Apple and Samsung, in which the Korean manufacturer will supply 100 million kupertinovtsy AMOLED-panel. The agreement is at least three years and is estimated at $ 2.59 billion.
