The latest rumor out of Taiwan is that the iPhone 5 will feature a curved-glass design, according to the Digitimes.
the latest being circulated around the supply chain in Taiwan is that Apple is going to adopt a curved cover glass for its next generation model.
Undisclosed sources are reporting that Apple has purchased 200-300 glass cutters specifically for the new design, with cover glass makers apparently reluctant to commit investment due to high capital costs.
Further details regarding the design elements of the iPhone 5 have not been forthcoming. No date has yet been set for release, but the new iPhone is widely expected to ship in September this year.
