Video shows alleged front panel for next-generation iPhone

updated 04:23 pm EDT, Thu May 31, 2012

Taller than iPhone 4S, same width

A video posted by Japanese site Macotakara purports to show a front panel for the next-generation iPhone. While the part is the same width as current iPhones, it is also notably taller, accommodating a larger screen. The video appears to back up other recent leaks, especially as the video's panel has a camera hole located above the earpiece.

One of the main features expected of the next iPhone is a larger display, measuring about four inches diagonally as in the Macotakara clip. It may also switch to a metal back, and will likely gain support for LTE 4G, the latter taking after the third-generation iPad. Evidence that emerged earlier today suggests the phone will also get a faster processor.

    I don't think there's any doubt the new iPhone will have a front panel.
