Early renderings of the iPhone 5, featuring an aluminum backing.
New iPhone will reportedly feature aluminum casing and redesigned antenna

picked up. "Decision to design similar to iPod touch instead of using glass is supposed that Apple seems to stop problems which are told widely damages from scratching, difficulties of painting white and weight of glass," reads the Chinese-to-English translation.
