A new leak regarding details of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5 have just been released. Jeremy Horwitz over at iLounge got his hands on a few purported details of the new iPhone 5, and Apple seems to be deviating a bit from previous iterations. There aren’t any monumental changes, but a few distinct adjustments that make the upcoming iPhone unique from older versions.
The iPhone 5 will be 10 mm taller than the latest version, with the screen growing from 3.5 to 4.0 inches. Now that so many phones have broken the 4.0 inch barrier and some even coming dangerously close to tablet size, it only makes sense for Apple to increase the real estate on the front. Also, with the width staying the same, it’s speculated that the aspect ratio will be changed.
Gorilla Glass 2 tech is expected to protect the display, and the rear will be seeing a shift to a flat, metal panel.
Consumers are obsessed with thin, lightweight phones, and the iPhone will supposedly deliver on that front with a 20-percent reduction—slimming down from 9.3 mm to 7.4 mm—in thickness.
Apple is also reportedly going to be introducing a new dock connector with the iPhone 5. It’s supposed to have fewer pins and come in a smaller, pill-shaped size.
With so many rumors out and no confirmation, we’re only left to speculate on what we’ll be seeing until an official announcement is made. So do you think there is any truth to the latest leak, or is it just another fake?
