After some rumors and leaks of the prototypes and photos, we now come across this detailed comparison between the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, which reveals interesting information about the front panels and its sizes. Details after this jump!
ETradeSupply has posted an informative contrast of the purported front panel for the ‘iPhone 5’ and the front panel for the current generation iPhone (4S). The leaked ‘new iPhone 5’ front panel shows a taller display and the FaceTime camera has moved above the ear piece, which we already heard off so far.
* The next-generation iPhone front panel is thinner than the 4S panel by 0.1mm.
* Looking at the display area the iPhone 5 glass front is 90.25mm long, 51.60mm wide, while the iPhone 4S is 76.65mm and 51.60mm. This enlarges the display area from 3.61 inches to 4.065 inches.
* ETrade Supply reports that the iPhone 5 display offers more light transmittance and more scratch resistance compared to the iPhone 4S display.
* The camera hole is slightly smaller for the home button is 0.3mm and has moved to the top center above the earpiece. Means, smaller in diameter than the hole on the iPhone 4S and the area around the button has been narrowed.
* The light sensor has moved to the left of the earpiece and is much smaller.
This means that Apple doesn’t need to increase the overall height of the ‘iPhone 5’ by a lot to accomodate the taller 4-inch?
Whatever, Apple is widely speculated to unveil its next generation iPhone at its media event on September 12th, followed by the launch of iPhone 5 later on September 21st. Continues!
