A photo of a white iPhone—dubbed the “iPhone 4S”—has appeared online. Without noting the source of the photo, M.I.C. Gadget reports that the device in the photo has a larger display—it appears to be both slightly taller and slightly wider than the screen of the current iPhone 4—as well as “edge-to-edge” glass. The report also contains a second image, comparing an older white iPhone 4 prototype/conversion to the front plate of the model appearing in the first image. Notably, both the original image and the front plate feature the new proximity sensor opening seen in the white Vodafone iPhone 4 photographed late last week; M.I.C. admits that it has doubts about the veracity of the new images.

I think this is a fake I very much doubt any screen changes for the new iPhone 4s or whatever you want to call it, goes against the structure Apple has set up with the current iPhone generations and secondly would it not mean that Apps would have to be modified to cope with a new size?

#1,

Technically, if Apple kept the same screen *resolution* as the iPhone 4, there would be no need for any developers with Retina Display-enhanced apps to rewrite. It would slightly decrease the number of pixels per inch, but likely not enough to force Apple to drop its “Retina” branding.

Actually, I would say it’s plausible to have a slightly bigger screen. Especially since it would also have an A5 processor, and more gigs. What’s 0.2 inches more…. It would be in par with most compatible smart phones out there, and would be a +1, since it would have a Retina Display.

Yep, give us a slightly larger 960x640 screen, more memory, and better processor and watch as even more people flock to iDevices.

Wouldn’t even consider buying a Kindle device if Apple upped the next iPhone and touch’s screen size just a bit.
