  • Complete Next-Generation iPhone Front Panel Pictures Leaked


    There have been a slew of next-generation iPhone rumors that have been afloat and another has surfaced. According to the folks at UBreakiFix, they have received photos of the full front panel of the next generation iPhone from one of their distributors.

    The parts don’t really reveal anything aside from what we’ve been hearing all along. As a matter of fact, the components look quite similar to those we’ve seen before with the exception of a closer look at the new iPhone’s LCD screen. The new screen is said to have increased to 4’’ when measured diagonally (up from 3.5’’ while preserving the same pixel density as the current iPhone design. Tis would give apps additional screen space to fill. The folks at UBreakiFix also provided a zoomed in photo of the top area of the device, which includes serial numbers and the LCD connector.

    If you haven’t already been following the rumors, the next-generation iPhone is said to have a metallic unibody design, 4-inch display, LTE network capability and taller design. The pictures match the previous leak but we’ll find out ultimately what is to come on September 12th, which is when Apple is expected to announce the device.

      It's just a few millimeters off edge to edge.

      The current body design looks ugly on the new iPhone. The padding on top and bottom makes it look even longer. The padding wasn't a problem before because it made smaller screens look adequate in height and easier to hold. In this case, it's like holding a retro cell phone from the 80s

      Surely the iPhones display is better the 1080 or am I confusing that with the new iPad lol

      I just returned my GS3. It sux. Battery life was awful. The power button is in the wrong place and I kept pressing it by accident. The screen and camera did kick *** but other than that it sux. And if your running OSX then syncing it was a PITA.

      I'm a bit disappointed. I was hoping for something a bit more dramatic in terms of changes. I'm not sure how I feel about just an elongated screen. I guess I'll be sticking with Jelly Bean for now.

      I couldn't disagree more. Yes, the battery life isn't as good as iOS but that's because Android has a lot more going on. As for saying the power button is in the wrong place, clearly you didn't have the phone long enough to develop new habits.

      I really don't think Steve Jobs had much to do with the design of this as it isn't graceful enough. The padding on the top is HUGE. This is a banana hammock phone.

      I'm disappointed!! Apple really showed their true colors with this one. Everyone is just a $dollar$ sign to them, and as long as there are vain, conceited, and egoist people who always have to have the latest and greatest, Apple will always make more money than me and you!

      Anybody else kinda feel like this should have been the 4s model and not the next generation iPhone? Maybe I will feel different about it after its officially unveiled and we see it all put together and running ios6 but I feel unimpressed. Hell I think im more excited about windows 8 than this at this point.

      Do you guys really think Samsung is any different in their beliefs when it comes to customers = $? I hate to burst your bubble, but we're nothing but a number on the quarterly earnings statement. The big difference between the two companies is that Apple builds the product they want and Samsung builds the product(s) they can sell.

      Little known Samsung fact: The ONLY reason the SGIII is bigger is that they needed more room for that monster Samsung logo!

      Hard to make that conclusion based on the front panel alone. I bet if you removed the front panel from all 5 iPhone models to date you wouldn't see much difference...except for the location of the proximity detector and the presence of the front facing camera.

      The sides and back have been the major changes when you're considering only the appearance of the phones.

      Pixel ratio makes no difference unless your printing large pictures. You won't notice a difference from a image stored on your device. Same principles as a straight camera.

      I don't even care about the camera, the face and bezel look so awkward that I would never purchase that design unless there was a chance of a Golden Ticket in the box. I'll stick with my current phone for theming and use my upgrade for something else.

      Agree, just waiting to see official design before I decide to get or not. I like my 4s.

      The back will be unibody with glass on the top and bottom. The phone will be taller and thinner. It's going to be amazing and consistent with Apple's "little by little" evolution of products.

      And if anyone STILL doubts this isn't the real deal, you can already see that iOS 6.0 perfectly displays a 1136 x 640 resolution which adds one more row of icons to the screen. Any other resolution it just scales to fit. For reference, the 4/4S has a 960x640 resolution.

It's surprisingly good. Most the people hating on it, haven't even tried it yet - and what a difference in user experience. It's the biggest leap so far in improvement of any smartphone OS.

      The whole package, your getting IOS 6, which remains virtually the same, with a unibody design and a stretched screen. I don't like the direction it's going.
      Apple doesn't need to change anything. What the have works for the majority of their consumer base and their yearly record numbers in sales proves that. Apple doesn't cater to some of the changes you see Android pursuing such as huge screens and highly moddable OS's because they're not competing against Android and that's never what they've done. iOS 6.0 isn't going to drastically change ever and hoping it does is just pointing out you have no idea how Apple does things.

      You had a defective unit. My battery life on my GS3 crushes the battery life I had on my 4s. I've owned every iPhone since the first version and I just recently switched to the GS3 and I can honestly say that the iPhone doesn't hold a candle to what the GS3 can do. The one and only thing the iPhone does better is take better low light photos. That's it. I'm really hoping Apple does something big with this next phone or else they will be left in the dust.

      It takes about 2 days to get used to it. Unless you have small hands. Then I can understand.

      I have both. What exactly do you think the GS3 can do that the iPhone can't? Specifically?
