    Yeah I was just looking at this on 9to5 (I think). It's exciting to see the rumors start to meld together. Looks like a fine update to the phone itself. :)

    As far as the screen goes, it looks like 3.7".

    Edit: Yeah it was 9to5. Link.

    Apart From

    The totally doctored bumper cover.....I think that's just a 4 in bad disguise...fortunately, it will soon be time for us all to discover what it's really like.

    Then we can move on to rumours about the ipad3 :)

    Are you saying the image of the cover is doctored? I don't understand your accusation.

    lets hope it's true, I'm tired of all these rumors, I wish apple would just announce/release the iphone 5 so I can play with it

    Only 3.7 in a case that big?!? Surly that's at least a 4" , if that's not the case for a new iPod with a 4" screen?!

    Who are you calling surly!? WANNA FIGHT!!?!?!?!

    I think the consensus is 3.7" because of the leaked icon and size comparisons. Not entirely sure.

    I'm going to guess that looks like about 4.3". Definitely too big a case for 3.7". Looks like a 4" or 4.3" screen can fit in that easily. Look how much room on the bottom there is.

    Ya i agree

    We already know apple can fit a 4" screen in the current iphone 4 almost if they tweaked it, Increasing the size of the phone has to bring it up to at least 4.3"

    Is that case also suggesting the silence/vibrate switch is going to the right? I don't recall seeing any rumors about that and I'm too lazy to search.

    Yes there were some pictures of other cases with the buttons and switch on the right side of the phone.

    I think it would make sense, apple likes to keep nice and clean looks. Moving the buttons to the right side would make it a much more smoother design if someone is looking at you while your on a call.(who cares about that though?)

    I don't see apple moving the buttons to both sides though. Volume rocker is on the left and there is a hole for something on the right. I would image they would keep them all on one side. I thought this was an iPod Touch case until I saw the hole.

    Or maybe it *IS* for an ipod touch and they're adding a motor and a switch!

    We'll know soon enough!

    Anyone else also find it odd that the (potential) switch is so close to the camera?

    The new hole has got to be for the Thunderbolt connexion.

    Dont know what to think anymore.

    I'm struggling to find legitimate reasons as to why Apple would increase the size of the phone (not the screen size though).

    I'm sure they will have their reasons though like they always do!

    Because it would look horrible if it had the screen stretched to the max in the current size shell, like the mock ups do.

    If real, the thing also seems amazingly slim. That makes the 4 look thick!

    It doesn't seem very Apple-like but it would give people more options with the new physical camera shutter button in iOS5.

    I'm going to make a couple of plastic cases that are smaller then the current iPhone just to freak people out.

    I second this notion.
