Talk of a bigger display screen has been doing the rounds for months. But there’s nothing like some hard evidence to back up rumors about Apple’s plans for its next-gen iOS devices. On the heels of today’s claims of taller iPhone prototypes with 3.95-inch display and smaller dock connector, another report has surfaced claiming that the display would measure in at 4.1 inches diagonally. To corroborate its claim, an anonymous supplier has shared front panel part from the next iPod touch 5G.
Apple has been adamant in keeping the size of both the iPhone and iPod touch panel to 3.5-inches. This time too, the company would undoubtedly use the same display size on both the iOS devices if it were to bring a larger screen. The leaked parts fits nicely with the WSJ report which claimed that the next generation iPhone will feature “At least 4-inches”.
Supplier at BadGizmo Repair has shared several replacement parts which it says is tailor-made for the new iPhone 5. The parts include the home button flex cable and front and rear cameras. The home button flex cable and front camera assembly have slightly different circuitry arrangement from their predecessor iPhone 4S counterparts. The rear camera, however, lacks an associated LED flash. More evidence of a new iPhone surfaced few days ago, when a white and black Home Buttons and micro-SIM tray were pictured online followed by headphone jack/earpiece assembly. The alleged parts did not show any major changes to the device.
Since Apple has long been notoriously secretive about its unreleased products and always keeps its future plans under wraps, expect more information in coming weeks through un-official channels. Fresh rumors about next generation iPhone and iPod touch are likely to increase over the next few weeks as we get closer to September-October timeframe.
