The next generation iPhone enclosure has been measured at 7.6mm thick, 18% thinner than the current generation device, according to report by Apple Daily and relayed by Apple.pro.

MacRumors translates:

---
One manufacturer we spoke to said that he was sure that the leaked images were accurate – so sure that he was already preparing to construct iPhone 5 cases and he'd be willing to ship replacements for free if they turned out not to be perfect. He enumerated three big changes from the old iPhone 4S to the iPhone 5:

1. The phone is much bigger, measuring 58.47 mm wide, 123.83 mm high and 7.6 mm thin. The screen is 4″.
2. The earphone jack has been relocated to the bottom of the phone.
3. The dock connector is much smaller, similar in size to micro USB.

The current iPhone is 9.3mm thick so a 7.6mm enclosure would be a significant reduction in thickness. Notably, the new in-cell touch panel could account for some of the reduction.

Earlier today a video surfaced aiming to provide a 3D rendered look at what the next generation device would look like. Apple is expected to unveil it on September 12th.
