Thread: New Engineering Images Show iPhone 5 with Edge-to-Edge Screen

    Default 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.

    I'm all for a 4" screen. The pixel density would still be high enough to make each pixel indistinguishable from normal viewing distance.

    I really hope this is just the same size screen with a smaller body.

    Not a same size body with a bigger screen!

    I hope your kidding. i for one welcome a bit larger screen as long as the size of the phone stays the same, but not huge like some of these other phones 4.3 the those are BRICKS and look rediculous when held up to your head.

    taking the measurement from 1 constant the home button one can get approximate size of this thing... I am too busy at work to figure this thing out plus from rough estimate the screen is too small, so I am not going to bother.

    I would love the same size device with a larger screen. That's what I hope for.

    I like the bigger screen idea. Now I wouldn't mind memory specs. I'd like leak on that subject.

    The current iPhone 4 design is perfect, screen is perfect for a mobile phone.

    I'd rather Apple just keep on making the iPhone thinner.

    bigger screen works and they can even increase the size of the phone especially if they can make the phone a lot thinner

    No. I agree with you. I think some don't understand. Or just want a huge phone. I for one think the current screen size is good. Make the phone match the current aspect ratio an thinner. Oh and faster w/ the same batt life or better. Thanks Santa... Speed is always good.

    Nar, I Also Think About Aspect Ratio, And To Be Honest I Don't Like The 4:3 Ratio, Apple Use. (Having To Zoom Out Of The Movies to see the whole picture, It's not fun) [Seeing Them 2 Black Bars]. I Would Like Apple To Change to 16:9, But i Don't See That Happening With All Them App With 4:3 Aspect Ratio :3 Sigh

    Apple tries to make things easier for its devs, rather then changing all the time and making them add support for funky aspect ratios. 4:3 really is good for a mobile device. It just feels right in your hand.

    Well i wouldnt mind a bigger screen. I do wish the iphone were bigger in screen i dont care if its as thick as it is right now. Since the thickness on it is fine for me right now. Just screen is a bit to small. Bigger than 4 inches no way!!!
