iPhone 5 Wont Sport Bigger Display Claims Source
Phones Review Quickie: Up until now the speculation and rumours have all had the next generation iPhone to sport a bigger display panel of around 4.2 inches it appears that those rumours are untrue and the iPhone 5 is expected to come out to play sporting a 3.5 to 3.7-inch display and not many differences to the current iPhone 4.
According to an article over on Apple Insider by way of DigiTimes, sources from “upstream panel suppliers” have revealed that the panel size of the iPhone 5 will be “less than 4-inches,” and will “not have many differences,” to the present iOS smartphone.
However one of the main differences according to said sources is that the iPhone 5 will do away with the reinforced glass back found on the iPhone 4 and instead will use a metal chassis on the back of the iPhone 5.
Here’s what the source apparently stated, “ the iPhone 5 will adopt a 3.5- to 3.7-inch panel with a design to allow the bezel of the panel to become thinner and make the screen look larger.”
Previously rumoured specs for the iPhone 5 include “a 4- to 4.2-inch HD touch panel, 8-megapixel camera, Full HD video recording, A5 dual-core processor and new ultra-thin industrial design;” but apparently the source thinks these are based on market expectations for the iPhone 5 and not real specifications.
In the past we have heard many iPhone 5 rumours including that both Sprint and T-Mobile will gain the iPhone 5 along with the next generation iPhone being a global dual mode phone, however obviously everything to do with the iPhone 5 is just guess work until such times as Apple gets all official and comes clean.
So what do our readers think about this latest bit of iPhone 5 news, will you be very disappointed if the iPhone 5 isn’t that much different from the current iPhone 4?
