Purported design schematics for the iPhone 5 confirm an opening for a 4
Purported design schematics for the next iPhone have emerged, confirming what the leaked parts yesterday showed, namely an opening for a display that is roughly 4" in size.

Back-of-the-napkin calculations from the engineering blueprint return about 7mm taller and slightly wider front panel part than what we have now, which is not much at all, and certainly preferable than increasing the width too much and messing up with one-handed operation.

Purported design schematics for the iPhone 5 confirm an opening for a 4" display
CEO Tim Cook said yesterday they will double-down on secrecy about Apple's upcoming products, which might have something to do with the current leaks, or it could just be one of the many prototypes and even an elaborate decoy and Apple unveils something totally out of whack - these schematics look rather legit, though.

Nice first on a iPhone rumor artical. Also this maybe true but I think this rumor is just to get attention to whoever

Sweet design more screen and less bezel but please add homecreen functionality to it and not just 1 but multiple homescreens like Android.

This is part of the doubling down - 2x the 'leaks' in the run-up to product announcements.

Most of these leaks are wrong so I wouldn't read too much into it

This is the safest way for Apple to protect the REAL design.

That super thin bezel on the sides will make it a challenge to have a good case that surrounds the phone and not cover part of the screen

I'm looking forward to the new iPhone. I don't think we'll find out till fall. iOS 6 is only a few weeks away though!
