According to a report by Know Your Mobile, Apple has filed a new patent for better antenna and zero plastic, hinting that its upcoming flagship device may come with a complete metal body. The patent highlights how materials like metal oxides can be used instead of plastic as it allows radio frequencies to pass through.
It is reported that iPhone 7 may sport a flat LCD screen panel sans Apple's iconic Home button, waterproof and dustproof, and camera with six-element lenses, which is superior to the one seen in the recently released iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
The upcoming flagship device is expected to be the slimmest iPhone. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities said in a note to investors that Apple is planning to make its upcoming iPhone, possibly the iPhone 7, between 6.0 and 6.5 mm thick, according to a report by DigiTimes.
