Next Year's iPhones to Feature 'More Complex' Metal Frame Design [Report]

Apple's next generation iPhones will reportedly feature a 'more complex' metal frame design. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that the 2018 models will feature a new frame design for improved data transmission quality.

Orders for 2H18F iPhones are market focus; both Catcher and Casetek have won new orders. We believe the metal frame of 2H18F iPhone models will be composed of more parts (iPhone X has four parts) for improving data transmission quality. We believe Apple will need more metal frame and casing assembly capacity and new suppliers because of more complex metal frame design and casing assembly, while models equipped with AMOLED and stainless steel metal frame will increase to two (vs. only one — iPhone X — in 2H17). We expect Catcher will obtain stainless steel metal frame and casing assembly orders. If Casetek can pass certification in late 4Q17 or early 1Q18, it also may win aluminum metal frame and casing assembly orders.

In another recent note, Kuo said that Apple is likely to keep the same all-plastic lens system used for the iPhone X rear camera for its 2018 smartphones.
