iPhone 5 Bezel Leaked

iPhone 5 Bezel Leaked

Looks like the iPhone 5 will sport a bigger screen. iDealsChina has published what looks to be a part for Apple’s next generation iPhone.

“China’s 1st iPhone 5 photo has surfaced! From this photo it seems that the screen size will be larger than iPhone 4. There has been a lot of speculation about a larger screen and maybe this will be one of the upgrades we will see when iPhone 5 is released this summer.”

9to5 Mac believes the leaked photo depicts a digitizer for the iPhone 5′s touch screen.  The bezel of the pictured digitizer is much thinner than that of the iPhone 4.

This design would allow Apple to increase the size of the iPhone’s screen without increasing the size of the iPhone itself.  The new screen dimensions look to coincide with previous rumors of an “edge to edge” iPhone 5 screen.

The leaked part also reveals an opening for a home button.  This would debunk rumors of Apple removing the Home button from their iPhone line.

iDeals China has proven to be a reliable source of iPhone information. In 2008, they leaked photos of the iPhone 3G case molding before it was released.

Here’s a mock up of what the iPhone 5 could look like with the new bezel:
