Just last week, Apple revealed its highly-anticipated iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Boasting a full screen, new-age camera quality and even better battery than its last model, it is hard to believe that smartphones could get any better. But in an odd turn of events, Apple is rumoured to transgress its design back to the iPhone 4 design, however with an even better camera.
According to reports from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the next iPhone model could reintroduce the box design from the 2010 unit. This could be due to the 10-year anniversary of the classic iPhone 4, paying homage to the nostalgic design. However, other tech-heads speculate that the new design will be more reminiscent to the product offering of iPads, with a slightly more curved finish.
First reported by MacRumours, Kuo believes that Apple will release 5.4 and 6.7-inch high-end iPhones with OLED displays, along with a 6.1-inch model with an OLED display. Two of the phones will also feature a rear-facing time-of-flight 3D camera that will support augmented reality and improve the camera experience.
The significant change in design is hoped to be a major selling point and combined with forthcoming 5G support, will increase shipments from 75 million, to 85 million in 2020.
Stay tuned for further developments.
