iPhone 5 leaked front panel parts confirm taller design

More parts purportedly intended for the sixth-generation iPhone have leaked online, corroborating yet again the inclusion of a larger screen.

Unearthed by SinoCet, a Chinese electronics exporter, the latest ‘alleged’ leaked parts contain what looks to be the iPhone 5’s front panel frame, housing a liquid crystal display, a touchscreen digitiser and the time-honoured home button.

Upon closer inspection it appears pretty much identical to the front-panel we saw earlier this month, adding a veneer of credibility that it’s probably the real deal.

It’s compared side-by-side the front panel of the iPhone 4S and is visibly taller, featuring a larger screen area, further backing rumours that the iPhone 5 will boast a larger, four-inch display.

Aside from the increased height and a centred front-facing camera, there is really not much to separate it from the 4S, which might irk more than a few iFans who probably feel the current iPhone design is showing its age after two years.

Still, a bigger screen is nothing to scoff at and most of the improvements the iPhone 5 will bring are likely to be on the inside anyway, such as a quad-core processor, Near Field Communications (NFC) technology and 4G LTE connectivity.

If industry chatter and expert forecasts are to be trusted, the iPhone 5 will be officially announced on September 12th and released on September 21st.
