New iPhone: Thinner With 4-inch Screen And New Dock Connector, Rumor Suggests

New iPhone

Apple’s new iPhone will be thinner than the current generation, sport a new dock connector and will also have a larger screen, according to new rumors that surfaced on Thursday. We’ve heard plenty of reports that Apple will implement a total redesign, but that doesn’t appear to be the case with today’s rumor. Instead, iLounge says it has learned the new iPhone will measure 125mm by 58.5mm by 7.4mm, which is about 10mm taller than the current generation iPhone 4S and 2mm thinner. Apple will also reportedly add a metal panel to the back of the iPhone, which could be the Liquidmetal technology we’ve heard so much about lately, and expand the screen from 3.5-inches to about 4-inches. iLounge said Apple will introduce its new dock connector on the device, which is said to offer fewer pins (the current generation has 30 pins), and will be compatible with all new iOS devices. To reiterate: this is just a rumor for now. Hopefully we hear more from Apple this summer or in the early fall.
