View Full Version : New iPhone to sport Unibody design

Scheduled for October release


New reports suggests that the new iPhone will have a redesigned style with unibody design and October as the release date.

Another iPhone rumor round-up thanks to another Foxconn's employee. This time about the release date (October) and the new design of the phone that could be an Unibody one similar to newer Android smartphones and off course the Apple's MacBook lineup.

According to Redmonpie:

That release schedule, at least according to the source, pegs the new iPhone for a release during October of this year. Since Apple launched the iPhone 4S last October, hence our money rests on the fact that Apple will stick with their release cycle and launch the next iPhone this October. Foxconn’s new order simply adds a little meat to the bones of all our assumptions.

Real hard facts about the new iPhone release are hard to come by, but with Foxconn employees seemingly more eager to speak up than usual, we wouldn’t be surprised if that changed over the coming months.

The new iPhone itself is also the subject of rumors surrounding its impending design features. Again, as was the case with the iPhone 4S, rumors are abound that the new handset will feature a new, sleek body. With the iPhone 4S sporting the same shell as the iPhone 4, it is a safe bet to assume that the new handset will see a redesigned body.

Unibody designs are becoming the norm for Android handset makers, with HTC recently producing the impressive One X handset. Apple is expected to offer a similar unibody design, too, and that could prove to be the basis for another Jonny Ive classic, according to reports.
