It looks like the next-generation Apple smartphone will be much slimmer than its predecessors, according to newly surfaced pictures.
Cell phone repair company iResQ.com — which said it has been receiving the screen assembly, back casing and other parts for the new iPhone — posted pictures of the latest model up against the iPhone 4S, and it’s clear that the latest device is slightly thinner. In fact, it’s about 18% more svelte.
The new iPhone (pictured left) appears to be about 7.6 mm thick, compared to the iPhone 4S at 9.3 mm. It also seems to be slimmer by the thickness of the back panel of glass.
It’s also evident that the iPhone 5 is significantly taller than the iPhone 4S and 4, which is also in line with rumors circulating the web.
