iPhone 5's 16:9 Ratio 4" Display Tech Supposedly Pictured

By Gary Cutlack on at

That thing there, if you choose to believe the word of Chinese component supply chain news sources, is the new display panel of the iPhone 5. If true, it confirms that the next-gen iPhone will be a 4" model with a wide 16:9 aspect ratio format screen, which includes new touch technology within the LCD itself to help reduce thickness.

The shape of the plate does indeed correlate with the many leaked images of the iPhone 5 we've already seen, although the move to include this newer, thinner form of touch tech might not necessarily mean Apple's next iPhone will be claiming to be any slimmer once finalised, as we're already expecting NFC tech to be squeezed into Apple's next posh telephone as well as all the usual smart parts.
