This post should make certain people happy, because we have some news on the screen dimensions as well. But firstly, and rather noticeably, the width of the phone hasn't been altered. Still, the phone seems much taller than the 4S. As a result, according to GSMARENA the resolution is 1136 x 640 pixels, making the screen 3.99 inches (4.0 inches) diagonally.
Another major change is in the back, which is almost full metal with only a small part of the top and bottom being glass. Again, this may just be a prototype Apple has been working on. But if it turns out to be the real, the iPhones of old is back.
Furthermore, the dock port at the bottom of the device has shrunk. Citing doubts and a possibility of phasing out/evolving the old connector to a new one. Actually, it may also look a bit like one of those, microUSB ports. It is also surrounded by a speaker grill with large holes, purportedly for enhanced sounding. The FaceTime front-facing camera has also been moved to an awkward position above the earpiece.
It is not yet confirmed if the photos are real, but if yes, then we may be looking at the nearest competitor to the Samsung Galaxy SIII. The Retina Display should make the experience on the 4.0 inch iPhone (5) pleasurable than the old-school PenTile Galaxy SIII. Cometh October, Apple’s iPhone 5 is expected to hail on the world. But, whether it will actually rival the much fantasised SIII is another question altogether.
