Latest rumor we hear about the upcoming smartphone iPhone 5 from Apple says that the design of this gadget will get “radical changes”, while from outside, it will generally look more like the latest iPod touch, rather than iPhone 4, writes Joshua Topolsky (Former Editor at Engadget) on his site.
Sequel as reported will be thinner than iPhone 4 and will probably get a teardrop-shaped profile, which will go from a thin part at the bottom to thick one at the top (something like that could be seen in the last notebooks MacBook Air).
If we believe the figure, drawn from the description of the smartphone, and rumors, iPhone 5 will almost have no frame around the screen, but will receive increased 3.7-inch display, whose resolution will match that of iPhone 4. Owing to this, the pixel density will decrease from 326 to 312 dpi, giving it a larger home area.
The source also notes that the taper illustrated in the mockup figure is somewhat exaggerated. In addition, the flip side of the gadget will not necessarily be metallic, like iPod touch, just the latter was taken as a basis for the figure.
