Why? Remember all of those renders of phones with rounded metal backs? Where would a flat SIM card tray fit in? This suggests that the next iPhone will have flat sides (or at least one), rather than a curved unibody backplate. And that means the front and back will most likely be flat as well (whether the back would be made of glass is still anyone’s guess).
Perhaps the new iPhone will be a somewhat larger and thinner device that otherwise maintains the same aesthetics in the popular iPhone 4/4S phones? Or perhaps it won’t even be much bigger, but sport the taller aspect ratio screen that was hypothesized a little while back? Slap the iPhone 4S parts on that and it wouldn’t be a bad looking phone.
