A schematic of what is believed to be the iPhone 5 (or new iPhone, if Apple's latest naming practices apply) has been leaked and it seems to correspond with the parts photos floating around a couple of days ago.

For starters, like the purported front panel in those shots, the blueprint shows the front-facing camera moved to the top-centre of the device. It also shows that the phone will be longer than the iPhone 4S - worked out from the dimensions as around 7mm taller.

However, most excitingly, if true, the schematic confirms that the screen will indeed be around 4-inches and widescreen - with an almost 16:9 aspect ratio.

MacRumors, who received the un-blurred schematic from one of its sources (another version exists, but with many details obscured), has worked out that the "active area mask" - where the display will be attached - measures 90.1 x 51.42mm. That equates to an opening of approximately 4.08-inches diagonally. As the viewable display is always smaller than the opening, we can safely assume that the screen will be around 3.9 to 4-inches.

Of course, any enterprising engineering student or technical artist could have knocked the schematic up, but it seems like a lot of effort for little reward. And as it appears to comply with other leaked photos and speculation, it could be that a complete picture of what the new iPhone will look like is coming together.

What do you think? Will the iPhone 5 have a 4-inch widescreen display? Let us know in the comments below...

ee.co.uk - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
