Design schematic claims to show front panel of Apple’s next-gen iPhone

“A picture purporting to show the design schematic for Apple’s next-generation iPhone lends even more support to rumors that the device will be slightly taller with a larger display,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.

“The images published on Wednesday by iPhone repair firm iLab Factory (via Macotakara) show what appears to be a slightly taller iPhone design, accommodating a larger screen that has been rumored to be 4 inches diagonally,” Hughes reports. “The design also appears to have moved the forward-facing FaceTime camera to the center of the device, just above the earpiece.”

Hughes reports, “The schematics appear to match up with images that surfaced a day earlier, showing an elongated back panel claimed to be from Apple’s next iPhone. That part shows an aluminum back with what look to be like small glass ends on the top and bottom of the handset.”

  1. From all the rumors and leaks and images appearing online it look as though this model of the iPhone will most likely happen. But we still have to wait for the official word from Apple.
