Taller Next-Generation iPhone Front Panel Caught on Video

Over the past few days, several leaks have surfaced showing an alleged front panel for the next-generation iPhone and a design schematic for what appears to be the same part.


Japanese blog Mac Otakara has now gotten its hands on one of those front panel parts and posted photos and a video comparing it to the current iPhone design. As has been shown by leaks so far, the next-generation iPhone would be somewhat taller than the current model, with estimates putting the difference in height at roughly 10 mm.


Roughly in line with the design schematic leaked yesterday, Mac Otakara measures the display opening at 10.33 cm (4.07 in) diagonally, allowing a 4-inch display as has been rumored to fit within the opening.

Like it or not, fragmentation of the displays has begun. :mad:


Which seems strange after Tim Cook specifically mentioned "One Phone, one resolution" the other day...

It's going to be a long four months if this thing doesn't come out until October.

I really was hoping for a wider phone not taller. hopefully these are just some old protos to throw us off of the real iphone 4SS/5/6

I'm quite interested to see how they pull off integrating apps of the old aspect ratio with this new ratio. I think I would have preferred the same ratio, only larger, so I get a larger keyboard in portrait mode (how I use my phone for typing).

Is there much benefit to only changing the screen size in one dimension?


redesigning non-game apps is probably easier... as most already adjust somewhat vertically, and also tend to use infinite scroll.
