One thing you can’t complain about is iPhone news, rumors and legal twists. And here is another one that looks very legitimate. ETrade Supply got their hands on the glass…

Yes it's technically major, but it still looks like the same boring ass phone that debuted in 2010. It's a stretched phone from 2010, yawn.

I suppose considering apples incremental change policy and also the fact that the iphone 4 and iphone 4$ are literally the same exact same phone only name rebranded,any change whatsoever in the 'new' iphone would probably be consider a 'big design change'!!!

Yes, it should more like the samsung phones, which also all look like the iPhone since 2007.

Well it turns out they actually look like their early predecessor like the Samsung F700 of 2006 ;-)

You mean that fat phone with the slider?

Yes it had a slider,as for fat phones in those days all handsets were chunky by todays standards. The Samsung f700 was 15mm thick,the Iphone which came out a year after it was still a considerable thickness at almost 12mm. If you really want to judge by thickness then the current iphone is in the beefier categories.

I can't agree. When I first heard that they were expanding the screen in only one dimension, I thought it would look ridiculous. But seeing the actual phone (allegedly) in photos, it doesn't look bad. I think the 4s was one of the nicest looking phone out, and I think what I've seen is pretty good looking, too.

Of course, look is secondary for me, I'm more concerned with power and performance and flexibility, and this is where Apple always loses me.

He's probably afraid of leaving fingerprints, and having the Apple jack booted thugs identifying themselves as police kicking in his door.

Apple: previous 3.5 inch screen is perfect for everyone to touch everywhere with the thumb finger. And now, you can still reach any corner on the new 4 inch screen because it's thinner. It's a new INNOVATION.

I bet this is fake. The camera above the mic looks dumb. As long as Apple doesn't say the new iPhone is revolutionary I'll be fine with it. I mean it's still going to be a good phone.

And all the people who swore up and down that 3.5 is the"perfect size", even typing up long winded blogs defending its size, are selling their current iPhone beverage coasters on eBay with time ending to bid in 5...4...3...2

The guy is wearing little individual finger gloves, and being very delicate with the glass panels. Skip to a part further in the video, all I see is him going ape sh*t crazy on both of those panels with keys. But anyways, on a more relevant note, I don't like the approach Apple is taking with just elongating the screen instead of distributing the added screen size to the width and height. It just seems... Abnormal.
