We know the new iPhone will most likely be taller than the iPhone 4S — but what about along other dimensions? Two new reports have surfaced this morning, both pointing to some rather dramatic reductions in size.
The first comes from an Apple.pro blog, which has scanned prints from the Taiwanese paper Apple Daily, who measured a leaked enclosure of the device. They state it’ll be 123.83×58.6×7.6 mm, which is 18% thinner than the iPhone 4S. This appears to be in line with various reports and leaked specs we’ve seen in recent months.
The other report comes from French site NowhereElse, who previously leaked the new iPhone’s nano-SIM. They claim to be the first to spot something that no one else has noticed about the new dock connector on the iPhone — that it has a previously unidentified metal ring. This would mean the connector is even smaller that previously thought.
However, the image they posted also shows the new iPhone as being wider than the iPhone 4S — which doesn’t match the size comparisons in the other leak we saw today. I’m not sure which one is more reliable than the other — but both seem to show that Apple really is squeezing down every last millimeter that they can.
