An iPhone 5 prototype has been spotted at Foxconn as reported by 9 to 5 Mac. The prototype is rumored to have metal back and larger display. The source earlier claimed to have iPhone 4 32 GB prototypes which were exactly similar to what gizmodo found in a bar. The prototype is supposed to have a metal back. However, there is still some confusion about the build that whether it is aluminum or liquid metal.
The display is reported to be larger than the current model (iPhone 4). The larger display has been rumored but the exact screen size has only been pin pointed by the Digitimes which is 4 inches. The iPhone 5 prototype source doesn’t claim to measure the screen size but they are assuming it to be bigger or larger than the iPhone 4.
According to us, the rumors are not true. The Apple may not be planning to release an iPhone with a metal back, neither with a large screen size. Many users have used the similar metal back before and it is available easily on the internet. The metallic back comes with a tool kit, so that one can remove the original glass at the back of the iPhone 4. As far as the screen is concerned, i don’t find any reason to increase the size ahead of the current (4 inches) when another device which fulfill the requirement is available – iPad. If apple increases the display further, then all the application available in the App Store needed to be optimized again which is a big mess for the company as well as developers.
Let’s us know what do you think about it in the comments section.
