Leaked Next-Gen iPhone Parts Are Taller Than Current iPhones

Repair site iResQ has posted photos of what they claim are parts from the iPhone 4G, which is expected to be announced later this year. Specifically, iResQ has what looks like an iPhone screen, only it’s 1/4″ taller than the current models. The site also notes that the screen is glued to the digitizer, which would make screen repair of the next-generation device more costly than 3G and 3GS models.

iResQ also points out that the part has a reflective, mirror-like surface right above the earpiece. They assume that this is where a proximity sensor would be located, which also happens to be a different location than previous models. Although iResQ has been around for a while, it’s difficult to determine if this is a production part or just a prototype. Of course it might not be from an iPhone at all, but the photos are very convincing.
