We’ve heard several rumors and speculations, which indicate that Apple’s fifth generation iPhone will come with a larger edge-to-edge screen. But if the purported case is indeed the real deal, then it suggests that iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S will get the same form factor as iPhone 4 and won’t feature an all-new design.
Back in March, folks at Hardmac posted photos of cases, which they claimed were for the fifth generation iPhone – iPhone 5 also suggested that iPhone 5 will come with a larger edge-to-edge screen.
As reported yesterday, Jefferies & Co. analyst Peter Misek also claims that according to his sources, the next generation iPhone won’t feature an all-new design, but will come with minor cosmetic changes, better cameras, faster dual-core A5 processor and HSPA+ support and will be called iPhone 4S.
iPhone 5/iPhone 4S is expected to be released in September.
