  • New Engineering Images Show iPhone 5 with Edge-to-Edge Screen

    New images coming out of China claim to be “mold engineering drawings” that point to the next iPhone version having a larger edge-to-edge screen. Images like these are often used to create cases and accessories for new Apple products before they are announced or go on sale. Design mockups can then be created and tested so new products can then be ready to go on sale as soon as Apple releases a new device.

    If these images do prove to be genuine then the iPhone 5 may not see a dramatic change in case design. Last month a purported iPhone 5 front bezel showing a larger edge-to-edge screen was discovered. The proportions of this component do not appear to be the same as the renderings discovered today, however.

    Previous rumors also point to the iPhone 5 receiving a larger screen and the latest renderings do seem to support this rumor, as well. Apple has made design changes at the last minute on more than one occasion, however.

    One image also suggests that a white iPhone 5 is also in the works. Hopefully, there won’t be the same productions delays that plagued the previous white version of the iPhone 4. If the white iPad is any indication, however, then the issues associated with manufacturing a white front seems to have been dealt with.

    Although Apple has increased the resolution of the iPhone screen over the years, they have not increase the size of the screen beyond 3.5-inches. Rival smartphones already include larger 4-inch+ screens and Apple may find that they have no choice but to follow suit. I for one, would love to see the next iPhone come with a larger screen. Hopefully, Apple will be able to find a way to include a larger screen without dramatically increasing the size of the device. As it is now, my iPhone 4 already takes up enough room in my pocket.

      Also, in most cases, higher res screens are meant for more realestate, not slightly better icons and images. That is why apple doubles it. Better images, same physical size.

      LTE is 3.9G, NOT 4G.

      LTE-A is 4G, and nobody has it in the US.

      HSPA+ is significantly faster than HSPA, but also is being falsely marketed as 4G by AT&T, to compete with Verizon's 4G LTE lies.

      AT&T cannot just come out and say "Verizon doesn't really have 4G," when LTE-A is the direction they are all going in. It would smear a technology they are building their network's future on.

      So for now, what they claim is 4G, is really just faster 3G... And AT&T is still the fastest.
