At the same time as the claims made today of the much taller iPhone prototypes with displays up to 3.95 inches, a source of MacRumors has given them photos of what seems to be the next-gen iOS device parts which is being carried by a certain supplier. The biggest significance in these parts is the claims of the front panel coming from the next-gen iPod Touch, and also with the supplier saying that the display would be much taller than the current model aswell, and that the new opening in the front panel would be measuring out to be 4.1 inches diagonally.
Apple most likely would be utilizing the same screen size on the iPhone and also the iPod touch if they were going to bringing a bigger screen to both of the devices, so it’s not clear on how the most recent claims of the bigger 3.95 inch display is true with this measurement of a 4.1″ display and The Wall Street Journal’s own claims of the display being “at least four inches”, though all of these reports are in the same exact general size range. The portion that is viewable of the iPhone display is a bit smaller than the opening in the very front panel, so this would be a way of explaining the very small discrepancy in all of the sizes that have been reported so far.
A supplier of one of the source’s has also shown listings of one of the many new parts that is claimed to be for the upcoming next-gen iPhone, which includes the home button flex cable and the very front and rear cameras, though the camera parts are being listed as to be needing some “verification”, so the supplier may have to yet confirm the legitimacy. The images are very small, though at the very minimum the home button flex cable and the very front camera configuration shows the differences that are distinct from the iPhone 4S models, though they also could end up being within the functionality that is recognizable from any user’s perspective. The very rear camera is appearing to be almost the same modules that are used in the last iPhone generation models, though it also lacks the LED flash feature.
Improved shots of the cameras has been shown at BadGizmo Repair additionally, which is appearing to have received the information from the very same supplier as MacRumor’s source.
The leaks of parts from Apple’s own factor supply chain routinely leaks out several reports during the release of any specific product. The home buttons that are plastic were the parts that were the first be leaked last month already, which is followed by a micro-SIM tray aswell, which is claimed to be a headphone jack/earpiece assembly aswell, though there was some arguments over what the parts specifically represent. The legitimacy of all of these components is to be confirmed still, though the history of the past releases is suggesting that these parts are usually genuine parts that are leaked from Apple’s own factory supply chain.
