iPhone 5 leaked panel corroborates 4" screen rumours

Rumours that the iPhone 5 will feature a larger screen have been rife for aeons. But today the chances of Apple opting to furnish its next-gen handset took a turn for the more likely after snaps and a video surfaced online purportedly showing a four-inch-plus panel for the handset.

Sourced by ETradeSupply, whose none-more-dry name we’ll concede isn’t about to get the pulse racing, the front glass panel purportedly measures 4.065-inches. That’s up from the 3.5-inch display of the iPhone 4S – and indeed every other iPhone since year dot in 2007 – and brings Apple’s blower more in line with the current generation of Android superphones.

The site also calculates that the display will feature a 16:9 aspect ratio, which in turn chimes with the kind of chatter that’s been doing the rounds on tech sites of late.

Other than that it’s hard to discern an awful lot, except than the front-facing snapper would appear to have been moved to a more central position above the screen, which ought to make for a better Facetime experience. That might be handy given that you’ll soon finally be able to use the much-maligned video calls app over 3G once iOS 6 lands.

Expected to drop in September or October, the iPhone 5 is also expected to differ from its predecessor by trading the A5 dual-core processor for a brawnier quad-core chipset and will apparently offer 4G network support in territories where the technology is in place.
