New iPhone (4G) – taller than the older iPhones?
Well, the iPhone 4G might be a bit different than the older iPhone models (including the 3G and 3GS), which all look about the same.
The folks over at iResQ have posted some photos that reportedly show parts of the new iPhone. It looks like the iPhone 4G is about 1/4 inch taller than the previous iPhones (which are all 115mm tall).
Another difference is that the new iPhone has a small reflective surface above the speaker (this might be just a proximity sensor). Also, “the LCD appears to be factory glued to the digitizer,” this making the iPhone 4G more similar to the first-gen iPhone than to the 3G and 3GS models.
iResQ says that this may not be the final design of Apple’s new iPhone, and even that the parts may be “for another product completely,” so for now we should be skeptical about all this.
