Alleged front panel of the iPhone 5 leaks again, 30% larger screen with in-cell touch layer to be used

0. phoneArena 04 Jul 2012, 08:00 posted on

It integrates the touch sensors directly into the LCD package, thinning it in the process, and allowing for a slimmer device. Given that those sources confirm once again what we've heard numerous times - that the iPhone 5 screen will be with 30% larger area than the 3.5-incher we have now, a thinner display part would still allow for a very compact device...

Thats true iphone doesnt support flash but there is the reason for that. Flash uses a processor a lot more and it can drain ur battery quicker. This is why android user use a spare battery

Totally agree with you "PhoneArenaUser" People are so dumb these days you want a phone that's perfect for you, so why do you get an iPhone that a 3 year old can operate?

iPhone user of 4 years decided to stay with Android after testing a phone for a month. Sums up a lot of the strengths of Android.

Actually thats wrong. I got an iphone to make using a phone in school, easier. Thats the one benefit of the iphone. I used to have the moto backflip and the htc inspire 4g before. Kinda miss android now. Especially seeing the htc one x and sgs 3. But my point is not everyone goes for the iphone to look flashy or up to date.

How long will it be before ifans wake up and see that incremental changes that apple introduce each year,yes the iphone 5 may have a bigger screen also the device will be slimmer but besides that it'll basically be an iphone 4 or iphone 4$ with ios 6 which is coincidentally also available on the former phones and is an update that barely brings any new features and those it actually does bring are generally old features in the general mobile world of things.

Looking at it in another context would you buy the exact same car each year if said car manufacturer only changed something like the head lamps styling or engine capacity or something similar just a small bit with each years model?

i don't think apple has said anything about the processor, the ram, or the gpu
so how do you know that it is going to be a 4s with a bigger screen?
what if the new dock port happens to be thunderbolt?
what android has even usb 3?
i'm not trying to flame here
i don't give a damn about apple, i'm still on the fence whether to get the iphone 5 or the gs3
but this is getting ridiculous
all the android people need to get over their small penis syndrom

So according to you he can't talk because we still don't know full iPhone 5 technical specifications, but you have right to insult other and talk about Android users penis and some kind of sindromes?

he wasn't just talking
along with the theme of this entire page where people are bashing the crap out of apple without any concrete details and he is saying that this phone is going to basically be a reskinned iphone 4s
i'm just pointing out we know nothing and everyone needs to chill out
the comparison to small penis syndrome is a pop culture reference often used to refer to people overcompensating in some way
you may have heard of it

iPhone fans don't care about technical specifications, they just care about the brand name.

that doens't mean there won't be decent specs
and that is partially because apple doesn't care either
i know you will bash that phrase
but apple works to create an expereince
albeit one they can sell at a profit
but they aren't interested in including 2 gigs of ram just for bragging rights
they are only going to include what they need to to create the expreince they are going for at a price that will support their business model
and it is working ridiculously well

"that doens't mean there won't be decent specs"

With this part I agree, but that doesn't change my opinion and what I just have said about most iPhone fans in comment #14.

i don't disagree with you either
i just don't see the relation of your post to this article
or the significance of pointing that out
it is common knowledge
i bet most apple users would acknowledge that fact
but i don't think it describes the gadget interested ones that visit this site for the most part
but people like my cousin, who are the majority of apple's users
i bet if you asked her she would definitley say that is one of the reasons she likers her iphone

So your saying that Apple is gonna price it the same as the highest end phone, with good enough specs for a good "expierience". Wow..

Looks like Apple doesn't know what innovating is. still looks the same too me even if its a 4" while other phones have 5.8" or 4.3" screen

12. remtothemax (Posts: 260; Member since: 02 May 2012)


how is following the phablet trend innovating?
even if they had a screen somewhere around 5" your comment would be calling them out for just following
personally i kind of have smaller hands
i would rather die than have a massive device
i'm not even sure that 4" isn't too big

You'd rather die? Seriously?

You should probably find another pass time. One without any sharp objects.

this report states a 30% bigger screen. OG iP is 3.5" x 30% = 1.05" + 3.5" = 4.55" iPone 5... I know it aint so but isn't that what 30% larger than 3.5" is?

iPhone 5 has to cater to all people, young, girls etc, they can't make a big phone as it will turn off huge segments of their userbase and anything over 4" starts to get real big for small hands. That's what makes the 1Phone sooo limited, you can't please everyone with the 1Phone. Just not possible

iPredict 4" screen, it's the right size for a one size fits all situation
