Alleged iPhone 5 front panel sized up with the iPhone 4S on video

engineering blueprints suggested, but not wider, which is good news for those who liked the iPhone for how one-hand-operation-friendly it is.
Besides the alleged changes in resolution and screen aspect ratio that this front panel will bring, it seems that the front-facing camera might be placed in the middle, like on the iPad, if this ends up being the real deal, and not just chucked prototype parts.

designed for sheep

If it's designed for sheep then...baaahhhhh I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on the new iPhone. I'm really hoping they bring over the saturation from the new iPad. I downloaded the movie "Hugo" in 1080p and my God, I've never seen a more gorgeous picture. Still, I'm less concerned with the phone and more interested in the change in iOS. Hardware is great, but I want a bit more from the software side of things.

i like that its going to have the 4in screen but i kind of want to see it maybe 3mm wider. i have huge hands and sometimes an iphone just feels a bit too small. im sure the new design will be great. im crossing my fingers for a smaller charging port and an hdmi out. i highly doubt ill get it but if apple wants to keep people interested theyll need to add more additions and features. id also like to see a high mp camera, maybe 12?

woah, i don't think i like this longer aspect ratio. not increasing the width of the display is really going to take from the advantage of having a larger display, it pretty much mean the keyboard in portrait orientation is going to be roughly the same size as before.

it's just a face plate, the only thing this reveals is that the next iPhone won't stray too far from Apple's design philosophy but that doesn't mean it'll be similar enough to elicit a remark like that.

Why didn't they increase the width a little wider as well? It now looks unusually long. :/

That was the thing i loved about HTC phones like the EVO and Thunderbolt. Both had large 4.3 displays but they were wider and better to type and view websites on. Look at the Droid X compared to the Thunderbolt. Same screen size but Thunderbolt was psychically shorter and wider. I miss those days!

yeah, it is true that when you compare the display to that of the current iPhone then it will feel a little weird but the main reason for that weirdness is not that the new iphone will have a very long display it is just because the current iPhone has a very shorter display when compared to the new panel, but i am sure that when you keep it with other phones that have even larger displays then i am sure that the new screen panel would look normal, and by the way Samsung Galaxy S, HTC One X, Sony Xperia S, Lg Nitro HD and other phones also have a 16:9 aspect ratio with an even larger screen but that does not feel awkward so guys chill as it is not gonna affect it at all
