MacRumors publication with reference to Twitter user ShrimpApplePro tells that the bezel on the iPhone 15 Pro could change shape, getting rounded edges of the back, like it is done with the case of the new MacBook Pro. The last time rounded sides were used in the iPhone 11 model.
Also, the smartphone can replace the medical steel of the frame with titanium. At the same time, the glass will remain behind.
Still have a back glass btw
Personally i think this design will create a really beautiful edge transition from the back to the camera bump https://t.co/VcXQaI4MDx

So the new iPhone 15. From the early information that I have, the iPhone 15 will feature a new border design. The back edge corner (as pointed out in the images) will be rounded and not square anymore. The material also will be titanium. Still very early to take it as it is.

Rumors about titanium in the case of top iPhone models appear not for the first time. Earlier this year, there were already rumors that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max could get titanium frames, but this did not happen. The simpler iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models traditionally use aluminum chassis.
However, titanium still appears in Apple’s patents, which can be used in the development of not only the iPhone, but also the iPad and MacBook. This will increase the strength of the devices, as well as add resistance to scratches and minor damage.
If titanium does appear in the specifications of the new iPhones, it will still not be the company’s first device made of this material, as it is already used in the Apple Watch Ultra. Apple Card users also received branded cards made of this metal.
