Catcher Technology — the metal casing manufacturer that designs and produces (and leaks) Apple’s chassis for its iPhones — does not believe it will be losing business with its biggest customer based on what that client will release next year.

The Taiwan-based company’s chairman and CEO, Allen Horng, said that he knows of only one all-glass iPhone that will be released in 2017. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo fom KGI previously predicted an all-glass iPhone to come next year. Biel Crystal Manufactory and Lens Technology out of China is said to be in charge of handling the glass casings for Apple. It already makes display glass for iPhones.

“I don’t think this move will have an impact on Catcher’s revenue as glass casing still needs a durable metal frame which requires advanced processing technology and would not be cheaper than the current model,” Horng said.

Catcher made a third of its money last year from Apple. HP and Dell represent 20 percent and 15 percent of the pot, respectively.

A recent rumor talked about OLED displays making its way to the Plus model for next year. Are these dots connected at all?
