Apple’s iPhone 11 and 11 Pro may have just started selling, but we may already know what the next generation iPhones would look like.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts the design would evolve to resemble something a little more like the iPhone 4 family.

Via MacRumors:

We predict that the new 2H20 iPhone design will change significantly […] The metal frame and the front and rear 2/2.5D glass are still used, but the metal frame surface will be changed to a similar design to the iPhone 4, replacing the current surface design.

Apple has kept the current design for its latest iPhones since the iPhone X in 2017, and this would mark the first substantial change since it adopted the new three-year cycle.

Apple’s 2020 iPhones are also predicted to come with a new small 5.4 inch iPhone and a larger 6.7 inch iPhone. This way, Apple gets to cater to the ‘small phone’ market and the large phone market. This is likely because 5.4 inches is not so small that a 5.8 incher wouldn’t mind using it, and anyone who opted for the massive iPhone Max series wouldn’t mind a 6.7 incher. The regular-sized iPhone would fall right in the middle, providing a reasonable gamut of sizes.
