After the leaked images earlier today of what looks like a complete front panel for Apple‘s next iPhone, it’s safe to say that many of us can now get a pretty complete picture of what the phone will look like.
It’s good timing then, that the iPhone 5 has now apparently entered production, making it on track for the August/September unveiling that the mobile community has been predicting. As an added bonus of info, Japanese website Macotakara revealed that the back panel of the phone will be made of a combination of aluminium and glass.
Some may be disappointed to hear that Apple are continuing to use glass in their designs after the notorious chassis-cracking issues that the iPhone 4S suffered from. From this, it very much looks like Apple won’t be utilising their partnership with Liquidmetal technologies to make a screen using the tough alloys.
Still, it’s unlikely that this minor niggle will prevent the iPhone 5 from being quite possibly the most popular handheld electronic device of all time.
