iPhone 5 Front Panel and Screen Outed Once More

iPhone 5 components have leaked once more. If not a Photoshop bodge or photos of a Far East knock-off, these snaps once again confirm that the next iPhone will have a larger, longer display  

These photos were supplied by uBreakiFix, an iPhone repair service, according to MacRumors. They appear to show the front panel of the next iPhone, along with its LCD display. There are no precise measurements to work off here, but the snaps show a phone that’s taller than the current iPhone 4S, consistent with long, long-standing reports than the iPhone 5 will use a 4in screen that’s of similar width, but longer than the 4S’s.

Borrowing knowledge from previous iPhone rumours, the screen is expected to be 4.065in across, and use a resolution of 1136×640. The current iPhone resolution is 960 x 640 pixels.

Aside from making widescreen movies look more at-home on the screen and giving game devs a load more pixels to play with, the extra pixels will also get you an extra row of app icons. The iOS 6 Beta suggests the next version of the iPhone software will allow for this dynamic re-scaling.

Does an extra four icons get you a bit excited? The iPhone 5 is expected to launch on September 12.
