Earlier this week, leaked schematics of what may be the new design of the rumored iPhone 5 leaked online. A day later, on May 30th, the schematics of the what may be the front followed suit. Using the pretty detailed (and official Apple logo stamped) blueprints as a basis, tech website TechnoBuffalo decided to create a mock-up of the device as it would compare to the current iPhone 4S.
Perhaps you're asking why they went through the trouble of what may be just another baseless rumor. After all, Apple hasn't confirmed whether or not the designs are theirs or not. According to TechnoBuffalo, the schematics line up exactly with the (alleged) iPhone 5 parts that also leaked on May 29th. Furthermore, the schematics are apparently immensely detailed, a task incredibly time consuming and unlikely for a fake model.
All that said, here are their results.
Altogether, the supposed new iPhone will have a height and diagonal increase by 0.3 inches and .5 inches respectively, putting it at a total 4.8 inches in height and 4 inches diagonal. That would be up from the iPhone 4S which has a 4.5 inch height and 3.5 inch diagonal.
So, what do you think? Is this another fake or is the iPhone getting a little taller?
