Some case makers have readied some iPhone 5 cases, awaiting for the next big smartphone of Apple to arrive sometime next month. If these cases are truly the iPhone 5 cases, then the iPhone 5 would be thinner and slightly wider.
The said iPhone 5 case has been pictured with an iPhone 4 inside and apparently shows that the iPhone 4 is a few mm smaller while inside the case. It also shows that the iPhone 5 would be styled more after the iPod Touch than the current iPhone 4. It’ll also have tapered edges and curved back, making its design aligned with the iPad 2.
Since the case hints that the iPhone 5 will be only slightly wider, it’s very likely that the iPhone 5 would pack a 3.7-inch or 3.75-inch screen instead of a larger screen. This matches what was rumored before. The iPhone 4 has a 3.5-inch screen that makes it more pocket-able than any recently released Android smartphones that usually pack a screen of 4 inches or 4.5 inches. A more pocket-able phone with lots of capabilities and long battery life means you’ll use it for lots of tasks while you’re on the go.
