The New iPhone’s Larger Display? [Video]

Well what do we have here. With rumors saying that the next iPhone will feature a taller, 4-inch display, a video has surfaced from Japanese site Macotakara detailing the new screen dimensions on video. After getting its hands on what appears to be the parts that have been floating around in the wild for the last few days, Macotakara’s video shows off a 4.07-inch front panel that could easily house the larger display everyone has been talking about.

As you can see, the width has remained unchanged, but the screen is definitely taller. The height of the Home button also looks to be slightly smaller. Different theories propose that Apple could change the next iPhone’s aspect ratio to 16:9 to accommodate the larger display, or the current Retina resolution could be simply scaled up to fill the new screen size.

Macotakara has a mixed track record with this stuff, but this front panel does match up with what’s been floating around recently, including leaked schematics from overseas that were posted yesterday.
