iPhone 5 to Have Less Than 4-inch Screen, Metal Back?

iPhone 5 to Have Less Than 4-inch Screen, Metal Back?

Posted August 29, 2011 at 3:21pm by iClarified
DigiTimes dispels rumors of a 4-inch iPhone 5 display but says the panel could get slightly bigger, which combined with a thinner bezel, will make the screen look larger.

The rumored specifications of iPhone 5 include a 4- to 4.2-inch HD touch panel, 8-megapixel camera, Full HD video recording, A5 dual-core processor and new ultra-thin industrial design; however, the sources believe that the leaked specifications are rather the market's expectations for iPhone 5. The sources pointed out that the upcoming iPhone will not have many differences compared to iPhone 4 in terms of components and the panel will still be less than 4-inch.

The sources added that the iPhone 5 will adopt a 3.5- to 3.7-inch panel with a design to allow the bezel of the panel to become thinner and make the screen look larger.

In addition the site predicts the iPhone 5's back will be changed to a metal chassis instead of reinforced-glasses.

WTF is about a freaking 4" screen that Apple has issues with?! - August 30, 2011 at 11:42pm
OK, I'm tired from all these questionable statements from iClarified... Either get a credible source and make a statement or don't make it at all.
