iPhone 5 to Drop Glass Back for Aluminum?

Apple is reportedly planning to use aluminum for the back of the iPhone 5 instead of glass, according to Taiwan’s Economic Daily News.

GadgetsDNA reports that according to a Chinese source, Apple is changing the rear part of iPhone 5 to aluminum which was used for first iPhone’s instead of glass or might adopt the design similar to iPod touch 4G, after facing lots of issues with white paint and scratches on rear glass surface

The article predicts that the antenna will be placed behind the Apple logo.

Antenna will be designed just behind Apple Logo so that cellular and Wi-Fi signal can penetrate easily. Side exposed steel antennas seem to be abandoned, as designed in iPhone 4. The report also confirms that the next generation iPhone5 will be galloping on multi-processor A5, as in iPad2.
