Images supposedly of the next-generation Apple iPhone have appeared on the Web, helping to confirm the previous reports that this device is going to be taller than its predecessor.
The pictures clearly show that this model -- which is often referred to as the iPhone 5 -- will be taller than the iPhone 4S, but not wider. Earlier reports indicate that it will be 5.6 inches tall, up from 4.5 inches.
This change is allegedly being made in order to make room for a larger display. This will be a 4.0-inch screen with a 640 x 1146 resolution.
In addition, the images also show the re-designed, smaller, Dock connector that has also appeared in previous rumors.
Despite these changes, the unit shown appears generally similar to its predecessor, with the same sharply-defined edges.
Other Internal Changes
On the inside, one of the more significant improvements anticipated in Apple's next smartphone is support for the 4G LTE networks of Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. RAM is also supposedly going to double to 1GB, and NFC will be built in.
