iPhone Rumor du Jour: Casing and Screen Size
August 29, 2011 10:27 AM
As Porsche drivers nationwide have attested, it's not the size that counts.
The Apple rumor mill churners at DigiTimes have served up the latest iPhone 5 rumors and
that Cupertino's next iPhone won't be breaking the four-inch screen barrier. Despite preliminary reports that the new iPhone will be sporting a 4.2-inch screen, sources from upstream panel suppliers have stated that the touch panel for the upcoming iPhone will remain below the four-inch mark.
According to those sources, the dimensions to the iPhone 5 won't be much different from the current generation and will sport a 3.5- to 3.7-inch panel. However, the design will be slightly modified to allow for a thinner bezel and create the appearance of a larger panel.
DigiTimes also claims that the reinforced glass back panel to the iPhone 4 will be switched to a metal chassis. Although aesthetically pleasing, the reinforced glass proved to some to be
more susceptible to shock and sudden impact
, shattering more easily than previous models. The rumored switch to metal could be for durability's sake.
While it would be nice to have a larger iPhone screen to better flaunt the Retina Display, some would prefer the portability of a smaller device.
