iPhone 5 Front Panel Gets Compared To iPhone 4S
If the latest rumors are accurate, than we are just one month away from the iPhone 5 launching event, which was reportedly scheduled by Apple on September 12th.
We already got used to leaked photos of the components of the new Apple smartphone, iPhone 5, but it seems that today we are dealing with scientific measurements of the device.
Using a measuring tool, the guys at iPhone5parts.net have compared the front panel belonging to iPhone 5 to the one of the iPhone 4S, recording all these on video.
Rumor has it that the new Apple smartphone will be thinner than its predecessor, and the video below confirms this hypothesis.
It seems that the speculations were accurate and that the iPhone 5 will feature a 4-inch display, 4G LTE support and that Apple have moved some of the ports, also changing their shape. The audio jack was moved to the bottom of the smartphone, while the dock connector will be considerably smaller.
Anyway, the measurements have revealed that the iPhone 5′s front glass panel will be 0.1 mm thinner and that the terminal will be a couple of mm taller than the iPhone 4S.
You can see for yourself that the front-facing camera have been repositioned, as it now lays above the in-call speaker, in a centered position.
It seems that the iphone 5 will have a smaller and a more sensitive light sensor. As well, the Home button is smaller than the one installed on iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.
The video below contains more details about the size and the specs of the iPhone 5, plus a scratch test for the smartphone’s display.
