iPhone 5 screen protector photos suggest elongated home button larger body

first_imgThere seems to be two different camps in terms of the upcoming iPhone 5’s body. The first think the iPhone 5 will look almost identical to the iPhone 4, but will have some improvements, like a new antenna design to solve the dropped calls “Death Grip” problem. Other improvements to the iPhone 4-looking iPhone 5 may be the inclusion of an A5 processor and an 8-megapixel camera. Then there’s the second group of people who think the iPhone 5 will have a completely redesigned body.We’ve heard rumors of the iPhone 5 reverting back to a similar design to the iPhone 3G with a curved, ergonomic back. We also heard talk of a tapered design where the bottom of the phone would be thinner than the top part, angling the device when it sits on a flat surface. Reports of a 4.2-inch screen have also been debated, as has an edge-to-edge screen, which left many of us wondering what would happen to the home button. Would it be removed altogether? But then, how would we get back to the main screen without a home button? We think it’s rather unlikely that the home button will actually be removed, and new photos have appeared that validate our thoughts on the home screen.The photos, from Ukwire.hk, show shots of a screen protector that has purportedly been designed for the iPhone 5. Interestingly enough, there is a spot for the home button. In fact, it’s elongated and resembles the shape of the pills seen in Dr. Mario. Another interesting discovery is that the screen protector is much larger in size than the iPhone 4. So, will the iPhone 5 have a larger, nearly edge-to-edge screen after all?That being said, creating a dinky film protector isn’t the hardest thing in the world to do, so there’s a good chance this piece of plastic will not be protecting the screen of the next-gen iPhone. We will have to keep waiting until the iPhone 5 is announced in (possibly) October to see exactly what it looks like.Ukwire.hk, via MacRumorslast_img read more
