According to leaked information, the biggest change in the highly anticipated next generation smartphone is the increase in screen size from 3.5″ to 4″.
A wave of reports claims that the new Apple‚Äôs product will feature ¬†be taller, but not wider screen. This will give the iPhone 5 a resolution of 1136×640 and provide apps with more vertical space to use.
By the way, it’s been found that iOS 6’s home screen already supports this size to display an extra row of app icons.
In order to provide a better demonstration of what a 4-inch screen would feel and look like, MacRumors has had this video created to show it in action.
The video shows how the new iPhone‚Äôs Home Screen would look. The extra space would naturally allow for larger app folder sizes.
All the applications would have to be modified to take advantage of the extra real estate. Experts predict that existing apps would be “letterboxed”, simply leaving empty black space at the top and bottom of the larger screen.
The new 1136×640 resolution is almost exactly the same 16:9 ratio found on many widescreen monitors and televisions. This will fit many widescreen movies more naturally, writes MacRumours.
‚ÄúSome of the behavior in the video is speculative, but we believe it is likely representative of how a 4″ iPhone would work. The evidence of such a screen has been overwhelming with part leaks and evidence of iOS support,‚ÄĚ the website writes.
The video was uploaded to the Internet after another ‘Apple‚Äôs’ film has gained its popularity over the web.
New York comedian Adam Sacks uploaded a video to YouTube with the tantalizing title ‚ÄúLEAKED¬† Official Apple iPhone 5 Promo Video- Keynote 2012.‚ÄĚ
The ‚ÄėiPhone 5 promo‚Äô of about 2 minutes duration shows Avery Monsen, Author of All My Friends Are Dead and some other books, who demonstrates an iPhone 5 camera (purporting to be the iPhone) and explains what it is good at, which is taking picture of food.
‚ÄúBefore designing the iPhone 5, we studied how customers use their iPhones and we discovered something interesting: People only use iPhones to take pictures of their food,‚ÄĚ says a young man in the video identified as a vice president of design for Apple.
‚ÄúThey are sad and alone and so they use pictures of food to create an illusion of a fulfilling life,‚ÄĚ¬†The Los Angeles Times¬†quotes him as saying.
Following that the Apple‚Äôs rep debuts the iPhone 5, which looks like a camera, not a phone as expected by everyone. He reveals some data and then adds: ‚ÄúThese pictures look so good that nobody would ever imagine you lie awake at night wondering why you can‚Äôt feel happiness.‚ÄĚ
The ‚ÄėApple‚Äôs VP‚Äô goes on, revealing that Siri has been redesigned s well. Her primary purpose? Yep, you‚Äôre right: to put fun captions on your food photos. ‚ÄúChickpea salad. Nom, nom, nom. I am happy.‚ÄĚ
The real iPhone 5, expected to sport a 4-inch screen,¬†is expected to be announced on Sept. 12 and is reportedly scheduled to go on sale on Sept. 21.
