A report claims that an iphone 5 prototype was spotted at foxconn, it is believed it would have a 4 inch screen and an aluminum back but it would conserve the current iphone 4 design. it isn't a surprise that apple is abandoning the breakable and fragile glass back.
“A source from Foxconn who we believe to be reliable has provided us with some information about Apple’s fifth-generation iPhone. Most of the information lines up with past reports but we have also learned a few new details. Most notably is that the iPhone 5 has already been seen at Foxconn and is soon going into the normal mass production stages. In terms of design, the iPhone 5 is said to look fairly similar to the iPhone 4 except for two very important differences: materials and screen size.
The iPhone 5 will keep a relatively similar size and shape as the iPhone 4 but Apple has decided to move away from the back-glass enclosure found on the fourth-generation device and move to something similar to the back of the first-generation iPhone from 2007. Although some reports claim the iPhone 5 will adopt a curved metal back, our source says models have been floating around with a flat metal back. The material of this metal is unspecified.”
the original iphone had an aluminum back with a plastic band to permit the passage of edge signal, as does the iPad 3g which leads us to think would it have a plastic band or would it relay on the antenna band. a question that leads us wondering on what it would look like.
The 4 inch screen close to retina display it would have to keep the same 960×640 pixel count to maintain app compatibility so the density would go down to below 300ppi
Personally i prefer the glass back even tho a lot of concerns about the fragility of the device. i believe that an aluminum back would be an unwanted feature/handicap by a lot of costumers.
But we all know apple where as its has an Aluminum, Glass, or plastique it will turn out great!
