A video comparison posted in the Japanese blog Macotakara depicts notable yet peculiar differences in the current iPhone model and the next generation iPhone model. The next generation iPhone model comes with a glass panel, which is taller and wider than the one comprised in the current model of the iPhone.
Although the width of the iPhone 5 is same as that of the current iPhone 4 model, it alters in its diagonal measurements, thus rendering a much better screen display coverage. The iPhone 5 supposedly will cover 4.07 inches diagonally, which is approximately 10.33 cm., against the current 3.5 inch display available in the current lot of iPhone models. As for the height differential, the iPhone 5 will be a lot taller sporting a difference of approximately 0.39 inches or 10 mm in height over the current iPhone 4/4S models. As such, the iPhone 5 is said to be anywhere between 4.07 to 4.54 inches in height.
The video depicted by Macotakara portrays the glass panel of the iPhone 5 to be in lines with any of the most recent leaks, be it a metal backplate or a front panel, or just an design schematic. Likewise, the front facing FaceTime camera seems to have moved to the center, right above the earpiece, from its original upper left position. Somehow, if you dropped the device the metal body might prevent it from damage the display, but in case it damaged, you can go for iphone glass repair to get it back.
With a likelihood of having an S5L8950X CPU, an variant of SGX543 GPU and 1GB of RAM, the next generation iPhone is said to be built on an iOS6 interface. Will the next generation comprise of iPhone having aluminum clad backplate or will it just sport a metal one akin to the iPhone launched 5 years ago, is something we all need to wait and watch. There indeed is lot of hoopla being spun around the next generation iPhone 5 model. The expectation is definitely positive, but time will be the best source to show us the reality of how the next generation iPhone will actually look!
