The iPhone 5 will look more like the iPod touch than the iPhone 4. That’s according to sources of thisismynext.com, who’ve gone ahead and created a mock-up of the next iPhone based on what they’ve heard to date.
The mock-up mightn’t become the actual iPhone 5, but they’re fairly certain it’s at least one of the designs currently in testing. They reckon it’ll have a teardrop design, starting off thick at the top and becoming thinner towards the bottom.
As we’ve heard before, they expect the display to dominate the front of the iPhone 5. The proposed screen would measure 3.7in, but with the same resolution as the iPhone 4, that’d lower the dpi a little.
The home button in the mock-up is larger than what we’re used to, in order to double as a gesture area. Gesturing is widely believed to be coming in a future version of iOS.
Interesting stuff. If the iPhone 5 is really pushed back till September, that gives the rumour mill another 4-5 months to speculate its butt off.
