Just yesterday we reported that according to the new rumors, the next-gen iPhone from Apple was expected to feature a 3.95” display. It will be keeping the same width but it is expected to be “longer/taller”. It wasn’t too long after we had reported the news that purported components of the next-gen iPhone surfaced, and thanks to the folks at Mac Rumors, assuming these parts are to be believed, it looks like the rumors of an iPhone with a larger display could very well be true after all.
Unfortunately these parts did not measure up to be 3.95” as according to the rumors – instead it appears to measure 4.1” diagonally, thus creating a larger and “longer” display. However this particular component would corroborate with earlier rumors by the Wall Street Journal which suggested that the next-gen iPhone would feature a display of “at least four inches”. However Mac Rumors has speculated that since the viewable portion of the iPhone’s display is slightly smaller than the opening in the front panel, it could explain the discrepancy in the different sizes that have been reported. So, what do you guys think? Are we looking at a genuine iPhone component here?
