Foxconn is Developing a Glass Casing for Smartphones Ahead of Rumored All Glass iPhone

Foxconn is developing a glass casing for smartphones ahead of a major overhaul to the iPhone expected next year, reports Nikkei.

Apple is rumored to be working on an all-glass iPhone with an edge-to-edge display that has no bezels on the top and bottom. Additionally, the front camera, Touch ID, speaker, and other sensors will apparently be embedded into the display.

Nikkei says that Foxconn is developing glass casing technology in order to maintain its position as a key iPhone assembler.

"Foxconn has been trying glass chassis since last year," a person with knowledge of the Apple supply chain in Taiwan said.

Another source said: "It is only natural that Foxconn is trying to come up with glass chassis as the capabilities to provide more components will bolster its standing within the supply chain and help with more orders."

I agree with you absolutely. Apple is using a crawling tactic each year by adding few features on their phones

As I kept saying the iPhone 7 which I call the 6SS is a waist of money, while Apple are holding technology on us giving us little bit every year to get our money, the competition are moving full speed with better screens and all kind of new technology and this is none disputable something that Steve Jobs would not have allowed, sure do miss the old Apple.
