Video Says iPhone 5 Will Be Larger and Thinner Than iPhone 4S
All signs are pointing to a larger, thinner iPhone 5 . A video released Friday byiPhone5Parts.net supposedly compares the display for the iPhone 4 with what is thought to be the display for the next-generation of the phone.
Obtained by “reliable sources,” the first thing you’ll notice in this video is the purported iPhone 5 screen is much taller than the iPhone 4S version. The upcoming iPhone’s screen measures in at 4.065-inches, compared to the 3.61-inch screen found on the iPhone 4S.
The screen also abandons the iPhone’s current aspect ratio, taking it from 4:3 to 16:9.
Along with being larger, the screen is also 10% thinner than the iPhone 4S, according to this video, while still being able to resist scratches.
Keeping in line with previous rumors, the forward-facing camera on the phone will be repositioned to right above the earpiece on the phone rather than to the left where it currently resides.
The home button on the phone is also slightly smaller.
The iPhone 5 or “New iPhone” is expected to be announced at a rumored Apple event on Sept. 12. Rumors speculate that the phone will be released about a week later, on Sept. 21.
The iPhone 4S was released on Oct. 4, 2011, making a late September or early October release — based on history alone — seem likely.
In addition to some huge exterior changes, the iPhone 5 is also expected to have some undated specs under hood including a faster processor and LTE connectivity.
