  • 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.

      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.

      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.
      If you really believe for one second that Apple isn't competing, then you sir clearly have NO idea about how Apple REALLY does things.

      What a dorky-looking phone! And that's coming from an owner of 3 previous-gen iPhones. :-/

      Show me a single change they've done to the phone that has been a direct response to ANYTHING Android has done before. When i said conpeting I meant that their design arent governed by the need to beat Android or anyone else. The iPhone both from a hardware and software standpoint, has changed very little from where it started as far as usability. Apple didn't get into the phone market to compete with others. They get into it to define it and everyone else has (understandably) been playing catch up since.

      The bigger screen is a huge change for apple and one I'm still surprised they're doing now. That said, with this third iOS resolution Apple is opening it up the door for developers to design apps to be truly universal and resolution independent, which will certainly come in handy if the rumors of a smaller iPad have any truth to them.

      All that's the same is the white color on the front and the shape. Otherwise everything is different. Your all still gonna buy it either way.

      I just played with the Samsung Galaxy S3 today in the Verizon store (I never go in there) - this next iPhone better be spectacular with competition like that.

      A little taller. Thinner. I think it's gonna be nice. I just wanna know if it will carry a gig of ram or a quicker processor. With the more real estate that they use with it being taller they can equip more hardware

      For those who haven't figured this out yet. The leaks come from Apple competitors who don't want you interested in the next iPhone.
      Is this not obvious?

      OK, so they've reduced the amount of vertical scrolling required - but to behave and feel like a bigger screen, it has to do what Samsung did with the Galaxy Note and at least retain or ideally, widen the aspect ratio.
      If you've ever used a long, narrow screen and a Galaxy Note, you'll know exactly what I'm referring to.

      In terms of the web-browsing experience, they'd have been better widening the aspect ratio - not narrowing it.
      Verdict = Fail
