While many people who pre-ordered the iPhone 7 are still waiting for their phone to be shipped, the focus turns to next year’s iPhone. 2017 will be the tenth anniversary of iPhone and Apple is expected to do something big. According to KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, the new Phone will have a complete redesign and new name.
Citing supply chain sources, Kuo wrote a new note to investors about the 2017 iPhone and its redesign. The phone is likely to be called the ‘iPhone 8’ due to its new design that is unlike the previous iPhone 6 series. It will have an all-glass casing that is more durable and scratch resistant with high gloss. It will be similar to the jet black iPhone 7 except it will not be vulnerable to micro-scratches.
