The analyst first predicted an all glass design with an AMOLED display last month. For this year, Kuo expects Apple to stick with the same general design as the iPhone 6 and 6s.
It's believed that Apple is looking to differentiate itself from competitors many of which are now using aluminum enclosures similar to the iPhone. Kuo doesn't offer any details on exactly how Apple would create an all-glass iPhone.
