iPhone 5 featuring 4-inch screen?

The next Apple smartphone could feature a 4-inch screen and different dimensions

iPhone-4S

The latest iPhone 5 rumours to surface indicate that the device could feature a new 4-inch touch screen, as well as slightly altered dimensions.

This is according to a report from iLounge, whose unnamed source claims that the next generation Apple smartphone will be 10mm taller than the previous edition, as well as 2mm thinner.

This is to accommodate the larger screen without drastically changing the device’s form-factor.

The front of the smartphone will reportedly look the same as previous iPhone 4 models; however the rear will feature a flat metal panel that stretches from beneath the camera to the bottom of the device.

Gorilla glass 2 technology is expected to feature, as well as a new docking connector with fewer pins than the current connector found on Apple devices.

The new connector is expected to have a revised shape, and may cause backwards-compatibility issues with older devices.
