Suggests new phone will be extremely thin
A virtual model from a Chinese casemaker, Elam, is purported to show the dimensions of the next-generation iPhone, reports say. While similar in some respects to the iPhone 5s, the model depicts a device that's larger vertically and horizontally, yet even thinner depthwise. That thinness is presumably possible because Apple has more lateral space available for internal parts.
The model is roughly consistent with leaked schematics and renderings based on them. The next iPhone is actually expected to come in 4.7- and 5.5-inch sizes, however. It's unclear which of the two the Elam model is connected to.
