That pesky taller iPhone 5 screen pops up on video

Wondering just how much bigger that next-generation iPhone screen might be? A new video of the leaked part shows it getting cozy with an iPhone 4S.

What may or may not be the larger screen adorning the next iPhone has been captured on video.

No, you won't see the actual screen. Instead it's the glass panel that your fingers and face grease up.

Japanese Apple blog Macotakara today published a visual comparison of the mystery part that's been floating around for the past few days, putting it next to the existing iPhone to show just how much bigger the screen would be:


The two notable changes, of course, are that the screen is taller, and that the FaceTime camera has been moved to the very top, center of the device -- just as it is on the iPad. It also matches up with the look of the purportedly leaked parts that surfaced last week, as well as the ones posted on Apple blog 9to5Macthis week.

Numerous reports have suggested Apple's moving to a slightly bigger screen with its next iPhone. The change is expected to bring a change in both resolution and aspect ratio, both of which might be new considerations for developers on Apple's platform.
