Taller new iPhone screen allegedly shown in leaked video

A video from a Japanese site shows a taller and larger-screened front panel that may be from the new iPhone.

Another piece of information about the new iPhone has leaked, apparently backing up rumors that it will be taller than the iPhone 4S. In a short video, Japanese site Macotakara shows off a 10.33-cm (4.07-inch) screen and a front panel that's quite a bit longer than the current-gen phone it's placed against. It's otherwise similar in shape, with the same width but a slightly lower Home button. The panel looks much like the one 9to5 Mac said it obtained earlier, including a FaceTime camera that's been moved above the earpiece. Nothing in the video is too surprising, but since there's no backplate we can't check it against some of the details in other leaks, and individual phone parts can't really constitute definitive proof. If Apple does end up announcing a 4-inch iPhone, we'll probably have to resign ourselves to the fact that sprawling screens are here to stay.
