  • Possible Next Generation iPhone Bezel Leaked


    Rumors of the next generation iPhone are coming together as images of leaked parts are shared across the Internet and fake iPhone mockups are produced based on those parts. It seems another part has been leaked – the supposed front bezel of the next generation iPhone, which features a centered FaceTime camera in contrast to the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S’ FaceTime camera which is in a straight line with the front speaker. The color is white in this image, but that's not to say Apple isn't also working on a black model like they have always provided.

    In addition to the centered FaceTime camera, the glass of this leaked part indeed looks like it was made to fit a larger screen than that of the iPhone 4S, which is a 3.5 inch retina display. It indicates that we could see that four-inch screen after all, with the same width but a taller appearance. It's also worth indicating that the right and left edges of this bezel are much slimmer around the display's glass than than the edges of the iPhone 4S, which points to a more edge-to-edge-like screen than we have currently.

    The back plate of the supposed next generation iPhone was leaked quite a while ago signaling a two-tone plate, smaller dock connector, and more obvious speaker and microphone grilles. The interesting change is that it features a partly matte and partly glossy appearance, which seems contrary to the consistency that Apple would put in a product. When all the parts that have been discovered are put together, it is expected that the next generation iPhone could look something like this.

    This find only confirms some of the rumors made about the next generation iPhone, however it is still herein just a rumor. We won’t know for sure what the next generation iPhone looks like until it is finally announced at Apple’s keynote. The next generation iPhone is expected to be launched some time this Fall.

      Judging that iOS 6 runs on the iPod touch with less than 256MB, and the new iPad (the big, huge retina display iPad) only has 1GB, I think requesting 2GB of RAM is far-fetched and I don't see it happening. Also, what's a mile per gallon camera; do you mean megapixel? Why would you settle for 8 megapixels when the iPhone 4S is 8 megapixels?
      Lol, yes meant megapixel of course. Again, Apple is more "software" based and never hardware when it comes to high performance internals. Sure could they do it with 1gb, of course. I'm just concerned with multi-tasking hi-def games, youtube videos, etc at the same time. If somehow Apple can pull that off with no lag with just 1gb of ram, well guess i would have to see it to believe it. Why settle for 8 well again Apple is software based so i'm sure they will say yes its 8 megapixels but we have HDR+ or some crap to make it feel like 10 megapixel. Apple rather find "software" ways of making their outdated internals "feel" like high performance. Would be surprised if the new iphone came out with a 10 megapixel rear and even more so with a 2 megapixel front HD camera/video. I know i would be sold on it!

      You can't compare specs against any Droid phone as the OS is innificent and they need to have quad core processors and shed loads of internal Ram compared to the iPhone.

      You have to compare overall user experience.

      This is why Apple being the designer of both software and hardware that works perfectly together make a better / compareable device than the others. It was true for Windows Vs Mac and it's the same today with the IPhone Vs Droid.

      Apple wins

      Don't understand why people saying it doesn't look "different" enough from the 4/4S to be considered the next generation. A larger screen is a MAJOR hardware change. Even if it does look somewhat similar in shape to the 4/4S I'm betting every single part will be different. Look at the original iPhone to the 3G - the back was different, internals were different, but the front face was pretty much unchanged. Did people go around then screaming "omgorz it's not different enough" wahh wahh wahh.

      It's the next generation iPhone, it WILL be awesome, and people WILL stand in line to buy it, just like with every previous iPhone release.

      Another reason why Apple doesn't need to throw a bunch of ram and other specs into the phone is because the hardware and software run so efficient. I mean i would like to see a 4x core cpu and more ram too, to see the new iPhone scream, but its not needed and still runs just as good as any android. I have a friend that has gone thru 3 Samsung GS2's and ATT just upgraded him to a GS3 and he hates it and was asking me about iPhone and being honest with him and this guy has had nothing but droid phones LOL :P

      More likely a camera indicator like on the MacBooks. It doesn't seem very practical to blind yourself with an LED flash.

      I've seen this Before. Although i'm not going to get the 5th gen until we get 4G here....i'm guessing their going to implement NFC into the next gen i5. BUT to be honest no one REALLY knows what it's going to look like. It might be the same size but all Screen wit no physical Buttons for all we know.

      Um no just no. You wanna know what a redesign is in my eyes why dont they apply the ipad 2 curves and style on to the next iphone and then it would be called a redesign with the bigger screen. A bigger screen with the same brick design as the iphone 4/4s is definately not a redesign.

      So you're saying you want them to go back the iPhone 3GS design with the curves? That's not much of a redesign either, technically. Point blank, why fix what isn't broken?

      Thr ipad 2 doesnt look like the iphone 3gs but i dont want them going back to the 3gs either maybe take some ideas from the ipad 2 styling and make it look better. I mean if u look all the iphone you notice that major redesigns happens after 2 years. Such as the iphone 3g to 4 with the exception of the original iphone to iphone 3g. The 3gs and 4s were just minor upgrades. If this phone looks similar to the same form factor as the iphone 4/4s then apple just broke there timeline to redesign the iphone every 2 years instead we would have to wait 3 years then. I love the ipad 2 design. The brick shape is looking dated since i own an iphone 4 myself. The shape isnt broken just dated. My 2 year contract is already up and i am waiting for a redesign. I mean how can someone tell if u have the the latest and greatest if it looks the same i here alot of ppl ask me is that the iphone 4s i say no its the iphone 4 and vice versa someone asks a iphone 4s user is that an iphone 4?

      Hopefully Samsung somehow secured a patent so no cell phone can have a larger screen size than what the current iPhone's screen size is. Would be just as vague as Apple's stupid patents...

      I'm starting to feel, there will be a iPhone 5 (or something called like that) coming, because whenever there are a lot of rumours on every single jailbreak page, they is always a new product coming. The same happened to me, I forgot about the iPad 3 rumours and a few days later to iPad 3 release which were rumours I actually bought an iPad 2. I was disappointed, when iPad 3 came out a week or few days later. (can't remember)

      I just hope they increase the width a little bit or the iphone is going to look really odd and a taller shape does not add much. width is important to make easier to read in portrait mode.

      Apple is all about whoring it's customers as making money off them. It's only taller to now have banner ads in every app, lol! Why else? .5" taller and no wider, dumb.
