According to data from the market research firm Counterpoint, more and more mobile phones will use glass backshells. This habit change is influenced by the upstream industry chain.
According to the data report, the proportion of mobile phones using double glass will reach 26% in 2018, and the data will exceed 60% in 2020. The metal materials we used to know will be abandoned by manufacturers.
The reason for this is that there are three, the first upstream glass material supply is large and the price is stable, and the reverse use of metal material will greatly increase its own cost, and the second is to use a glass phone. The cost is really lower. Finally, the metal material and the wireless charging function are mutually exclusive.
Starting from the iPhone 8 and X, Apple re-absorbed the glass material, which also caused the industry to follow suit. Although the glass phone looks more glossy and textured, don't forget the degree of resistance. This material is not as strong as metal.
In addition, another problem that currently plagues the glass body phone is that the body is too heavy.
