“A trusted source notified Japanese language Mac blog MacOtakara on Saturday that Chinese manufacturers have started to ramp up production of Apple’s new iPhone, which the site calls ‘iPhone 5,’ and adds the unit may bear some minor design changes from parts allegedly leaked in May,” AppleInsider reports. “While previous reports pointed to a ‘uni-body’ chassis that featured a two-tone all-metal design, the purported production model will sport an inlayed glass piece between the backplate’s top and bottom edges instead of leaving a bare aluminum surface. Unlike the iPhone 4 and 4S which boast a ‘glass sandwich’ design with tough Gorilla Glass front and back coverings, the upcoming handset will reportedly have a backplate only ‘partially covered’ by the tough material.”
