iPhone 5 to Get 4″ Screen Say Rumors

While Apple has left the details of the “iPhone 5,” the “iPhone 6″,” the “iPhone 4G,” or whatever you want to call it, to much of the imagination, iPhone insiders have gotten access to some of the most valued particulars of the mysterious phone — its size.

Apple inside r iLounge is reporting that the Cupertino, Calif., based company is abandoning the long-rumored “teardrop-shaped iPhone 5” in favor of another glass-bodied design.

According to the report, the new iPhone will sport a longer and thinner look than the iPhone 4 and 4S, with approximate screen measures being listed as 4-inches from the smaller 3.5-inches.

As the exciting change is one of many that are being reported by insiders, the rumor of a new and improved 4-inch screen is one that is most likely to be true.

According to a report done by Wired magazine, “The problem is there’s just not a lot of room inside an iPhone for anything more than is already there,” John Brownlee writes.

“An iPhone is a densely packed sandwich of silicon, radios, flash storage, motors and cameras. Over the past five generations, Apple has packed in everything that makes up an iPhone about as densely as possible, and the battery still makes up the bulk of every device . . . If it’s going to fit anything else, Apple needs to make more room,” he adds.
