Leaked next-gen iPod touch part hints at taller display

updated 01:48 pm EDT, Tue May 22, 2012

Claims may be difficult to mesh with rumored iPhone sizes

Images have leaked of what is allegedly a part for the next-generation iPod touch, according to a MacRumors source. In particular, the images show a front panel produced by an unidentified supplier. Noticeably it has room for a much larger display, which the supplier claims should measure 4.1 inches.

If the part is authentic, the exact size of the display may still be questionable. Apple tends to keep screen sizes consistent between the Touch and the iPhone, and one recent report framed the next-generation iPhone at 3.95 inches, although other reports have said its screen will measure at least 4.

The supplier is in fact said to have listings for several next-gen iPhone parts, including a Home button flex cable, and front and rear cameras. The first two are described as showing differences between equivalent parts for the iPhone 4S. The rear camera part isn't paired with an LED flash, but that may simply be a separate component.

Parts leaks can indicate that a new Apple product is closer to production. The next-generation iPhone is believed to be some time away from shipping, however. Most reports have positioned a launch in the fall, possibly in October, the same month the iPhone 4S shipped.

    No speaker?

    Did anyone else notice that the cover either doesn't have a speaker hole, or the little circle is the speaker hole in which case where's the FaceTime camera port?
