We’ve seen multiple parts of the upcoming iPhone 5, but we haven’t seen them all. ETrade Supply has come to feed our hunger for information about the next generation iPhone. The online store somehow obtained the iPhone 5’s glass lens and put it side-by-side with the iPhone 4S – and they were amazed by what they found.
First, it’ll have a 4.065-inch screen. If you’re thinking this is old news, you’re right, but until this point there were only rumors about the screen size, nothing like the visual and measured confirmation we now have. But let’s put it in numbers: iPhone 5’s glass lens measure 90.25mm in length by 51.60mm in width, while the previous generation iPhone was 76.65mm x 51.60mm. This makes the display area reach 3.61-inches, but the iPhone 5 display will have an amazing 4.065-inch screen and a 16:9 aspect ratio.
They also found that while the glass lens is similar to the previous generation iPhone it is 0.1mm thinner, which suggests the iPhone 5 is set to increase in size yet remain thinner than its predecessor.
There are a couple differences noticed by ETrade Supply regarding the glass lens design: it’s higher and the camera and light sensor holes have switched places: the camera hole is now top-center, while the smaller light sensor hole is near the receiver, where the camera used to be on the iPhone 4S.
Interestingly, the diameter of the home button of the iPhone 5 glass lens suggests a smaller home button, making a replacement with an earlier version impossible. On the back of the phone, there isn’t much of a difference between the two generation glass lenses. However, I’d just like to remind you that Apple is using multiple versions of its next generation device before sending the final version to the production line. With all these information leaks we seem to know almost everything about the next generation iPhone, but everything should be taken with a grain of salt.
