Alleged iPhone 5 Video Reveals Longer, Stronger Screen

As the official announcement for the iPhone 5 approaches, so do more leaks and rumors. Just last week, we caught a glimpse of alleged iPhone 5 photos and video and now, iPhone parts company ETrade posted a video showing a direct comparison between the iPhone 4S screen and an alleged iPhone 5 screen. The video reports that the iPhone 5 screen is slightly thinner, longer and more durable than its predecessor.

The company reports that the iPhone 5 screen will feature a 4.065-inch panel that is .1mm thinner with a home button that is .3mm smaller as well. Along with the smaller home button is a smaller area surrounding it, measuring 15.40mm compared to the iPhone 4S' 18.00mm. The biggest change between the two screens is that the resolution ratio for the iPhone 5 lens will be closer to 16:9, making high-def videos more pleasant.

In addition to the dimension specifications, ETrade also reported an improved light trasmittance for the panel as well as enhanced scratch protection. Of course, all of this information could be false, so we won't know for sure until the official announcement which is rumored to come on September 12th.

    Samsung should file a lawsuit against apple for using a 16:9 screen in their phone, because it looks too much like the galaxy S3
