    Rumour Only iPhone 8 will be glass and steel.JPG

    According to a new report from DigiTimes, via MacRumors, only one of Apple’s forthcoming three new iPhones will have a glass case, with the other two keeping the current aluminum form factor.

    DigiTimes reports that sources from Apple’s upstream supply chain also say that only the 5.8-inch glass and aluminum model will have an OLED display. The others, called by some the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, at 4.7 and 5.5 inches respectively, will be very similar in design to the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but will have some internal changes, including the addition of a faster A11 chip.

    This latest news from DigiTimes actually contradicts some other recent rumours, including one that said that Apple would be releasing a 5-inch iPhone. It’s possible that the truth is somewhere between the two, maybe with all three of the phones having the glass and stainless steel case and wireless charging, and only the flagship iPhone 8 model having an OLED display and improved battery life.
