A new schematic has shown up that appears to be for the iPhone 5 and tells us a lot about what we can expect from the next iteration of Apple’s phone.
The image above (click for a larger view) appears to be a design schematic for the iPhone 5. While there is no way to tell if this is official, it does match up nicely with the multitude of iPhone 5 back panel images that leaked out yesterday.
What can be discerned from the schematics is that the “active area mark” measure 90.1mm (3.55-inches) by 51.42mm (2.02-inches). This would leave an opening for the display of 4.08-inches when measured diagonally, but when you add in bumpers to hold the panel it would drop it closer to the 4-inch measurement we’ve heard rumored so many times. This would also line up with the display aspect ratio of 16:9 that we’ve been hearing circulated quite often as of late.
While the schematic doesn’t list the external height of the device, MacRumors did some math and figured out that based on pixels the phone would be approximately 7mm (.275-inches) taller than the iPhone 4S.
If this isn’t the iPhone 5 at this point, or at least one of the designs Apple is considering, then someone has gone through a lot of trouble to fabricate fake back panels and draw up schematics. We won’t know how real any of this is until Apple unveils the device, but the evidence does seem to be piling up.
