iPhone 4S vs. ‘iPhone 5′: Detailed Front Panel Comparison

Posted on 08-05-2012 10:48 pm

 

There have been a lot of sup­posed leaks of next-gen iPhone parts, and even a video com­par­ing the next-gen iPhone’s face to the cur­rent iPhone 4S. A new video post­ed this morn­ing by ETrade (via MacRu­mors/iPhonein­Cana­da) pro­vides the most detailed com­par­i­son yetbetween the two front pan­els, show­ing some very inter­est­ing changes.

 First of all let’s see the dis­play screen. From the pic­ture, we can see that the iPhone 5 glass lens is 90.25mm long, 51.60mm wide, while iPhone 4S is 76.65mm and 51.60mm. The dis­play area enlarges from 3.61 inch­es to 4.065 inch­es. The LCD screen can be a lit­tle small­er, and that will be around 4 inch­es. What’s impor­tant, the res­o­lu­tion ratio of iPhone 5 glass lens is around 16:9, which will be a big change for iPhone.

While the idea of a taller 4-inch dis­play is fair­ly well accept­ed, ETrade pro­vides very pre­cise mea­sure­ments of the face, show­ing a 4.065-inch dis­play win­dow that is sig­nif­i­cant­ly thin­ner than what has been used on any pre­vi­ous iPhone. As pre­vi­ous­ly sug­gest­ed, the taller screen brings the iPhone to a 16×9 aspect ratio.

As you might expect, the buffer area around the home but­ton, as well as around the ear­piece, has also been reduced to make room for the larg­er screen while min­i­miz­ing the need to increase the size of the phone. The new front panel also trans­mits sig­nif­i­cant­ly more light than its pre­de­ces­sor, and has been found to be extreme­ly scratch resis­tant – much more so than the iPhone 4S panel.
