I don't think it's the same resolution. If you believe that the inset rectangular area shown in the drawing is the screen, then it would appear to have a 2:1 aspect ratio instead of the current 16:9 aspect. One possibility is that've added more pixels so it's a 1280x640 display. That's 2:1.

Apple has only made one change in the iPhone's aspect ratio... getting it to the widely accepted and fairly normal 16:9

I seriously doubt Apple will change the aspect ratio again... but stranger things have happened.

If this is real, look at all the sensors on the top and bottom of the screen! The thing is loaded with unidentified sensors! At least one is a camera, at least two are microphones, one is the proximity sensor, and other is the ambiant light sensor. That leaves the rest as unidentified new sensor features! Odds are they related to the Prime Sense acquisition. Also, I read a rumor that it may have humidity, temperature, and barometer sensors. If they are new Prime Sense sensors, they could be dual IR cameras and/or dual visual sensor, and an IR emitter for it to have 3D vision for gesture recognition.

No matter what they could be for, the idea of new sensor features is very exciting!

Does anyone have any info on the practicality of fitting an upgraded camera system in possibly thinner yet larger body, as we relentlessly march in that direction? If satisfying a small vocal majority means that the continued improvements in iPhone photography stall due to ever thinner (yet wider) phones it will be a bloody shame. IPhones as cameras are fantastically popular.

Maybe it's the iPhone Air.

The current iPhone does not use any manufacturing molds, does it? I could be completely wrong... but could this be for the manufacturing of a liquid metal body?

It's easy to unlock my 5s using the fingerprint scanner one handed such as when eating a sandwich or driving a car, let's see you do that on your S5.

Better than my Bose, better than my Skullcandy's, listening to Mozart through my LeBron James limited edition PowerBeats by Dre is almost as good as my Sennheisers.

It's easy enough, granted it's easier on my 5s though. I've programmed in my thumbs and index fingers so I can just swipe my thumb down to unlock it one-handed. Not an issue. 

 

**edit: and you're not supposed to be using it in your car anyway ;) For situations like that I use my Gear 2. Very handy.

I was thinking LQMT too.

Why aren't pens made to be used by two hands at once? You have two hands, right, so they could be bigger? The simply answer is they don't need to be and you can perform other tasks with your free hand.

It'll be interesting if they don't use 16:9 as that adds an additional wrench to the mix of changes needed to be performed. I'm guessing 16:9 is the one thing they will keep.

I hope the rumors of a more expensive phone aren't true. One analyst claims Apple is trying to get a $100 increase from the carriers, the thought being that they'd pass $50 of that on to the consumer. For me there would have to be something more than just a bigger screen to pay $50 or $100 more for the next iPhone.

There are few more things that Apple could improve even with the thinner package. So not to worry.

There are only two kind of people in this world.

Those who dont understand Apple and those who misunderstood Apple.

If the "screen" in the schematic drawing is indeed 53.7mm wide, and we assume that maybe the cutout for the screen is larger than the screen itself, then how long would a 16:9 screen be? Answer: 95.5mm. That would yield a 109.6mm diagonal screen, or 4.3" screen.

A 16:9 screen would be too short for the molding.

The entire mold looks to be 24" x 16".

Punish?...yes.....Kill? Are you from Elysium?

Neither death nor a slap on the hand are suitable punishments for theft. A punishment to fit the crime might be appropriate. In Saudi Arabia, I believe they cut off your hands if you steal. Some might consider that a bit much.

Glad to see some bezel. That makes it a little easier for the case makers.

That's a good point. As much as I want the display to get close to the edge it could usability with a case as well as the effectiveness of the case if it needs to reduce some of the edge coverage to allow for proper usability.
