iPhone 15 Design Leaked, May Include Curved Titanium Frame
The iPhone 15-which is said to be the successor of the iPhone 14-may have a new border design compared to previous models. According to a new leak, Apple will consider a major design change for the next-generation iPhone model. The iPhone 15 is said to come with a curved back bezel instead of a flat one like the iPhone 14 lineup. The Cupertino giant may also use titanium instead of stainless steel with the iPhone 15. Pro models in the upcoming series may sport a titanium frame, while the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus may get stainless steel frames.
Tipster ShrimpApplePro on Twitter wanted that the iPhone 15 may adopt a new border design. According to him, the edges of the rear edges of the upcoming handset will be curved instead of the square edges from the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and iPhone 14 models. In addition, Apple is thought to be using titanium for the iPhone 15, unlike the previous models featuring a stainless chassis, including the iPhone 14 Pro lineup.
Since new materials are more expensive than stainless steel, Apple may adopt a titanium frame for the top models of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra. The regular iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are rumored to come with stainless steel frames.
Apple’s 2023 iPhone family is expected to include the standard iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max models. The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are thought to come equipped with Apple’s next-generation A17 Bionic chip and 8GB of RAM. Non-Pro models can be equipped with this year’s A16 Bionic chip.
TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously said that the buttonless design and support for USB Type-C charging will be the best features of the iPhone 15 series. The high-end models in the iPhone 15 series are said to feature solid-state buttons instead of physical volume and power buttons, similar to the home buttons on the iPhone 7, iPhone 8 and iPhone SE units. They may be equipped with three Taptic Engine vibration motors to simulate the sensation of clicking.
