iPhone 8 rumoured to include stainless Steel Frame in Design | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter



Apple's iPhone 8 is probably one of the most anticipated phones of the year and many can't wait for its release.
Hence any scrap of information is being devoured and what we have now is a situation where we hear that the new iPhone 8 might move away from the aluminum unibody design used by Apple and much of the industry flagship smartphones today and instead spring for Stainless Steel frames.
According to online publication DigiTimes,  Apple plans to sandwich the stainless steel frame with two glass panels, one on either side. That’s very similar to the design we had with the iPhone 4, which also used stainless steel and had glass on the front and back. If you remember, this phone was particularly prone to cracking, no surprise given it had so much glass, so we hope Apple has worked with suppliers to grab even stronger panels.
“Sources from the upstream supply chain pointed out that the cost of the forging process is 30-50% cheaper than the current unibody CNC machine process, while quality control is also more stable,” DigiTimes added, noting that Wistron will join Pegatron and Foxconn in assembling the iPhone 8.
This adds up as an earlier report suggested Apple is moving away from the current design, which has been in use for three years since the introduction of the iPhone 6. 
We won't be able to know for sure until the phone comes out of Apple officially announces that there will be a change of design, so till then-- we wait.
