Next iPhone To Get A Larger Display, Thinner Body & Smaller Dock Connector!
It’s been a while since I have written about the upcoming iPhone, but during this void nothing seems to have changed significantly. Yes, the device is still under the wraps and hasn’t officially made to the surface, but that won’t stop the flow of speculations and rumors. Will it?
According to a report by iLounge, the new iPhone is up and ready for a significant overhaul, and that has everything to do with the screen size of the device. The latest report mentions that the iPhone will boast a metal back with a larger display on the front.
The transition of the screen size will not affect the width of the screen but only the length, which according to the report, will be increased by as much as 10mm. Whether it will be called the iPhone 5 or something else, it will be sporting the new Gorilla Glass 2 for more protection.
The new iPhone will also be about 2mm thinner than iPhone 4S. The metal back will add more strength to its back than the ceramic. It is also expected to have a smaller dock connector.
The report also mentions that the new iPhone, which will be apparently christened as iPhone 5, will have a design which is more or less inspired by iPhone 4/4S but not the unconventional tear-drop form factor we’ve been hearing since long.
Other speculated features include a faster processor, increased RAM storage, better gaming graphics, built-in NFC support and much more. While the rest of the competition has switched to larger displays, a trend well received by most of the smartphone enthusiasts, Apple has remained consistent with iPhone’s screen size at 3.5”.
Since the iPhone was first released in the year 2007 until this day, Apple’s iPhone has denied any changes to its physical size and yet managed to impress everyone with its display size froze at 3.5”.
Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 5 soon, when exactly we are not certain. Wonder what Ive has produced off the many from the drawing boards. We are just as excited to discover as you are and we will keep you posted with more details as they surface.
But until that happens, we suggest you take this with a pinch of salt. Stay tuned!
