As you know, the Xiaomi Mi 5S and Mi 5S Plus didn’t come with a ceramic body due to production capacity problems. We have even heard the new-gen iPhone 8 is planned to sport such a housing as well. But the recent leaks confirmed Apple wouldn’t adopt this technology due to the same capacity problems. So it turns out ceramic housing devices are in high demand, but manufacturers are not able to meet that demand.
Fortunately, today it’s become known Changying Precision Technology Company, the leader in this sphere will make an investment at a sum of $8.7 billion to boost production of ceramic back panels. This simply means all those companies that have planned to design smartphones with ceramic panels and refused from this idea can courageously implement their plans. This also means we won’t be disappointed of Xiaomi’s Mi series handsets like the case related with the Mi 5S.
