iPhone 5 pictures: Bigger screen revealed?

Leaked technical drawings suggest a larger display and a thinner bezel.

Worshippers at the font of Apple rumours were blessed today with another reported glimpse of the upcoming iPhone 5, thanks to Chinese tech site idealschina.com.

The images are what the site call "mold engineering drawings", used by designers as guides to create a gadget's outer casing. As the post on the site explained: "We just got what appears to be mold engineering drawings for iPhone 5. These would be used by case designers to create plastic, TPU, aluminum, silicone and leather cases."

The images suggest that the iPhone 5 won't differ hugely in form factor from its predecessor, the iPhone 4. In fact, the only obvious difference is that the screen now extends right to the side-edges of the device, no longer constrained by a bezel as found on the current gen iPhone. These are just pictures of the outer shell, mind. We've got a whole article on the whispered changes Apple is making under the hood.

We've already touched on the idea of the next iPhone boasting a larger screen to cash in on the trend for bigger displays we saw at MWC (think Galaxy S2, LG Optimus 3D, Acer Iconia et al.), and the problems that might cause for Apple's leviathan collection of 3.7-inch optimised apps, but this rumour is one that's gathering some momentum. Real deal or fanboy trickery? Let us know via the T3 inbox or the T3 Twitter feed.
