Apple's latest Photo Stream beta outs iPhone 5 design
A icon of an unusual looking iPhone was spotted in the latest beta version of Apple's Photo Stream. The icon, prompting a Photo Stream user to take a picture using an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, shows a device with a wider display and an elongated home screen. Sound familiar? Many of those who have claimed to see a prototype or the designs of the upcoming Apple iPhone 5 have claimed that the handset has a wide display that nearly reaches the edge of both sides of the unit, and a stretched out home button that helps you use gestures to navigate the phone.

Note the similarity between the icon and the rendering of the phone seen on This is my next. Using the Photo Stream icon as a guide, it would appear that the new Apple iPhone 5 will have a 3.7 inch screen. Of course, there is the chance that the icon was developed without any regard to the next-gen iPhone. The good news is, with an expected introduction of the model later this month by Apple, we won't have that long to find out how accurate the Photo Stream icon is to the actual Apple iPhone 5.

The icon from the Photo Stream beta (L) resembles this rendering of the Apple iPhone 5 (C); based on the icon, the Apple iPhone 5  would have a 3.7 inch screen (R)

I hope you realize that for the last 3 models, SAMSUNG has produces up to 35% of the hardware for iPhones. There are bound to be similarities. Apple is in the intangible/creativity business, SAMSUNG engineers actually make it happen.

This is an Apple post, did you forget? Your the one who should f**k off. And what he said was pretty spot on. Samsung copied iPhone and now iPhone is copying Samsung? No Apple is just making another iPhone. I'm not saying that Samsung is a copycat, but if there were to be a copycat, it would still be Samsung

I phone (iPhone) losing ground to the screaming hordes of Android phone makers and how many Androids phone have died in the battle against the iPhone? Just go to your fanboy post and shut up then if you dont like it. I love my Evo but I use Mac computers. Dont care for the iPhone but if it was garbage as it is said to be it wouldnt be the phone everyone is trying to beat all the time.

wow at least use proper grammar when you're full out hating on Apple.

"we're all android fans here and no one have any is**t device, so f**k off!

Yea you need hooked on phonics........

And I think you are referring to the word "meaningless" in the English language.

Ridiculous man go get schooled in the language first before trying to bad mouth.

"a stretched out home button that helps you use gestures to navigate the phone". Is me or does that sound like a "Trackpad". How will that be any different from the trackpad used by HTC and RIM? Would be really interesting to see how it works.

Looks like a generic phone icon to me. Also, where did you get "3.7 inch screen" from that rendering?

Here are the specs:

1Ghz A5 Dual core processor.

3.5 - 4"max display 640x960.

5 - 8MP camera.

Probably 1Gb of ram.

iOS5.

This cannot get any better than that. Thanks to Apple blowing it's business relationship with Samsung that is.

Oh and we still will have iOS 5. No Widgets no live wallpapers no nothing.

Samsung will go where the money is, regardless of the current legal animosity between the two. If they see that they can make hundreds of millions of dollars selling screens and processors to Apple they'll do it. However, if Samsung sees that they'd make more money investing their resources into their own ventures (Bada, the Galaxy line, etc.) then Apple'd have something to worry about. For now though, the iPhone's apparently underwhelming specs are a result of Apple thinking it knows what's best for consumers better than they do.
