It seems that when it rains, it pours. Shortly after leaked images of what is believed to be the casing of the iPhone 5, another image has surfaced showing the schematics of the upcoming Apple flagship smartphone.

The diagram of the next iPhone?

From the image, we can see that there is a striking resemblance to the top panel of the of the iPhone 5 image that was leaked a couple of days ago. A report by Apple Insider, who obtained the image via iLab factory, has the author stating, “The schematics appear to match up with images that surfaced a day earlier, showing an elongated back panel claimed to be from Apple's next iPhone. That part shows an aluminum back with what look to be like small glass ends on the top and bottom of the handset.” The report goes on to read, “The back panel that was pictured online on Tuesday is one solid piece connected to the sides. Pictures of the bottom of the panel also show space for a smaller dock connector, and a headphone jack that has been moved from the top to the bottom of the device.”

There have been a ton of rumours and reports doing the rounds claiming that Apple will incorporate a larger display on their next iPhone and these images match up with it. From the image, we can see that the display size will measure 4-inch diagonally. This information keeps up with the rumours that the brand will launch a smartphone with a display of 4-inch or larger. If Apple does intend on adding a 4-inch display to their next iPhone, then this will be the first time they use a display size that is larger than 3.5-inch. The resolution of the next iPhone is believed to be 1136 x 640, with the width remaining the same.

With the possible change in design, we can also see that Apple will change the design of the dock connector at the bottom and it will be a lot smaller in comparison. This change is believed that is to be implemented is done in order to fit the handset with LTE capabilities.

From the last two leaks of the iPhone, do you think that this will be the final design used when Apple announces it or will they surprise the world and launch a handset with an entirely new design?
