iPhone 5 to ‘feature unibody construction & four-inch screen’

The next-generation iPhone will feature a unibody construction a la MacBook Pro as well as a larger screen, reports suggest.

According to a note to investors penned by Brian J White of Topeka Capital Markets, the Cupertino-based tech giant will adopt a one-piece form factor for the iPhone 5, which he claims will go into production in June.

Citing anonymous sources at Apple’s manufacturing partners, White also corroborated persistent rumours that the handset will feature a four-inch display.

That’s up from the 3.5-inch screen that’s present and correct on the iPhone 4S and brings the iPhone more in line with the ever-expanding crop of Android kits where displays approaching five inches are fast becoming the norm.

White stated: "In our view, this will be the most significant iPhone upgrade with a four-inch screen and a new, sleek look that we believe will require a unibody case.

"This new, sleek look will be the most important reason that consumers decide to upgrade."

The Topeka number-cruncher also claimed that the phone will feature 4G support - something of a gimme after it featured on the new iPad - to allow users to surf the web at super-fast speeds.
