Fully assembled Apple iPhone 5 pictured side to side with older siblings
The Apple iPhone 5 is expected to be the biggest redefinition of the iPhone since it launched way back into 2007, changing our perception of what’s a smartphone. For the first time in five years, Apple is expected to bring an iPhone with a larger screen, but it seems that the outrageous demand that everyone expects will face not so stellar supply.

Sharp, one of the three companies responsible for manufacturing the iPhone screen, has encountered “manufacturing difficulties” and lacks a timetable for the shipment of the displays. This could turn out to be a big issue for Apple as Sharp is one of only three display manufacturers that Apple has contracted. The other two are LG Display and Japan Display, and it seems they might need to make up for Sharp’s slow manufacturing start.

Meanwhile, another day brings us another leaked picture of the alleged iPhone 5, this time side to side with the its older siblings.

It’s taller, the camera is at the center, but otherwise they look almost perfectly identical. We know, though that the back is where the difference should be. Apple is unveiling the new iPhone on September 12th, the date we’re all waiting forward to to put all these rumors to rest.

Add some plastic around the edge of the bezel and you have a Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic

I think they should keep the old size and increase the screen to 4". There's plenty of space for them to do so. And of course the design should be completely new.

There is plenty of room, but Apple has to have those big bezels.

Edit - those instead of thse. PA - you really need to make posts editable after someone else posts.

Actually we can edit before someone posts after you.
Surprise that you didn't had a chance like that...

I saw the mis-spelling after clicking the Post Comment button, and clicked Edit. In all, maybe 2 or 3 seconds passed until I clicked the Edit button, but it was too late. It seems that anyone posting anywhere on PA triggers the lock, 'cause nothing had happened to this thread.

Maybe read your own comment before you hit post...just a thought.

PA needs to make comments deletable too. Sometimes I click "comment" instead of "reply" and later find out I was ranting at myself.

I don't think it is good idea because various trolls will be changing their statements and will be claiming that they never had said this or that...

Give the ability to edit a post for say, 2 minutes after posting. Then, the post is locked down for posterity.

As opposed to what they do now, which is claim someone must have spoofed their account.

The claims of account spoofing will continue un-abated. It is a well-practiced action. Remember the saying - practice makes perfect? Well, they have practiced to perfection.

Its so NARROW... its part of the reason I hate the 16:9 aspect ratio (vs 4:3 or 16:10), sure this phone isnt 16:9... ITS WORSE

New iDevice design paradigm (top secret, straight from the kitchen table no less...) - thin and minimalist. Time for a retro 1st gen Nano look (tall and narrow). You heard it first on PA.

The nano comparrison is spot on. I thought the tall thin nano's were ugly, as well as this rendition of the iphone if these pics hold true. The only nano i thought looked good was the squarish one, 4th gen maybe?

Really nothing new here. I think the Note 2 will be my next device.
