Next Gen iPhone to feature larger screen, thinner design, and same battery – Analyst

WWDC 2012 is going to launch in a week and all we are hearing about nowadays is related to the iPhone that is not expected to release anytime soon. An analyst from KGI Securities named Ming-Chi Kuo, who happens to have a strong track record has written in his research note that Apple’s next iPhone that is going to launch in the fall will feature a 4.08-inch display featuring IPS panel just like the previous generation. The device will carry a resolution of 1136×640 and 500-nit brightness. The display will be 50.9 millimeters wide and 90.3 millimeters tall.

The analyst has also noted that Apple will use the new in-cell technology in it’s new iPhone. We detailed the rumor about the in-cell displays here two months ago.

In his research note, Ming-Chi Kuo mentioned that the next Apple iPhone will utilize the same battery found in iPhone 4S, even though it will feature a larger display. About it’s design, Ming-Chi Kuo wrote that the device will have a thinner design than it’s predecessors – which are made of glass and aluminum.
