Imagine iPhone 5 With Stainless Steel Scratch Resistant Body
Apple patent application suggests the company is investing time and money in a new scratch-resistant and durable coating technology. The cost effective and durable nitride coatings would not only make your next Apple device scratch resistant but also leave them looking great.
In addition to providing a durable, hard surface that is both scratch and impact resistant, the nitride layer allows for the natural surface color and texture of the underlying stainless steel to remain visible to the user. It is this natural surface color and texture of the stainless steel that adds to the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the consumer electronic product, thereby enhancing the user’s overall experience.
iPhone 5 with a stainless steel body sounds feasible as iPhone 4 with a glass body proved more fragile than iPhone 3GS.
