The rumours over last number of months revolving around the screen size of the next-generation iPhone 4S/5 are supposed to be bigger and be “edge-to–edge”. Some believe that we’ll see a 4-inch display, but overseas reports by DigiTimes today says their “sources from upstream panel suppliers have recently revealed that the iPhone 5’s panel size will still be less than 4-inch”. The report continues to state that the iPhone 5 screen size will be between 3.5-inches and 3.7-inches, but no word on what the resolution will be. It was also noted that this screen size will “allow the bezel of the panel to become thinner and make the screen look larger”. In addition, instead of the glass backing, Apple is apparently going with a metal backing.
