iPhone 17 Slim coming as a redesigned model in 2025

Since Apple introduced the OLED display and Face ID with the iPhone X in 2017, there have been no major changes in the design of its phones. However, a new news published by The Information suggests that this situation may change in 2025. According to this news, Apple may launch a completely redesigned “Slim” model as part of the iPhone 17 series.

According to Haitong International analyst Jeff Pu, iPhone 17 models may come with a smaller Dynamic Island. This innovation will come with a possible size increase and new side button design in the iPhone 16 series, which is expected to be released in 2024. It is stated that the iPhone 17 Slim, with its 6.6-inch screen size, will be positioned somewhere between the 6.1-inch screens of the smallest model of the series and the 6.9-inch screens of the iPhone 17 Pro Max.

Another analysis source, Ross Young, suggests that the screen size of the new model is 6.55 inches. This sizing seems to be in line with Apple's strategy of offering the user wider options with different screen sizes. Another striking element in the design of the iPhone 17 Slim is that the screen will come with a smaller hole and front camera cutout.

Material and camera location to be used in iPhone 17 Slim

According to The Information's sources, various designs of the new high-end model are still being evaluated. Aluminum frame, rear cameras positioned in the middle and smaller front camera hole are among the distinctive features of this design. Additionally, the energy density upgrade suggested by Ming-Chi Kuo and the stainless steel battery case are among the possible components of this design.

This new design will follow Apple's slim new iPad Pro. iPad Pro received very successful results in durability tests on YouTube. The iPhone 17 Slim is expected to be similarly durable.

There are also remarkable claims about the pricing of the new model. The iPhone 17 Slim may come with a higher price tag than the iPhone Pro Max, Apple's current most expensive model. This can be considered as Apple's strategy to further strengthen its position in the premium segment.

Considering the difficulties Apple faced in the design process, the launch process of this model needs to be monitored carefully. Elements such as material choices, energy efficiency and durability are among the critical factors that will determine the success of the new model.
