iPhone 5 to Have Larger Screen, Thinner Bezel According to New Parts

 In iPhone

A Chinese reseller that specializes in parts for Apple devices has listed on its website what is claimed to be a glass digitiser panel for the upcoming iPhone 5’s touch screen, and suggests the device will feature a larger screen and a thinner bezel.  There aren’t currently any measurements for the cutout in this part, however, it could tie in with previous rumors that say the fifth-generation iPhone will sport a 4-inch display.

The discovery of this part also strengthens rumors that Apple’s next smartphone will have an “edge-to-edge” display, as this new digitizer has a thinner bezel on all sides. The design is the same as the iPhone 4, so apart from the larger display window, the home button, speaker, and front-facing camera are all in the same place.

Below is a mockup, courtesy of 9to5 Mac, which shows what Apple’s iPhone 5 could look like – isn’t it beautiful?

As usual with many Apple products, rumors surrounding the iPhone 5 started just a little while after the launch of the iPhone 4, and many have speculated that this summer’s launch will see a “completely re-designed” device that may include – amongst other things – a processor upgrade from Apple’s A4 to an A5 chip, and a dualmode wireless chip capable of using both CDMA and GSM networks. The latter certainly seems plausible, especially after the Verizon iPhone 4 was released with this functionality, but would Apple really upgrade their processor just one year after its debut?

    I really hope the screen is as big as the HTC expire 4g. That would be really nice to upgrade to something that large.
