Detailed hands-on video of iPhone 5 front panel hits the web

The iPhone 5 could have a 4.065in display with a smaller home button

A hands-on video of the supposed front panel of the next generation iPhone provides a detailed comparison between the iPhone 4S's front panel and the alleged leaked panel from Apple's supply chain.

ETradesupply posted the video, which was created by iPhone5parts.net, along with a blog detailing the dimensions of the front panel. The leaked part, which is described as the "iPhone 5 glass lens" is 90.25mm long and 51.60mm wide, while the iPhone 4S is 76.65mm long with the same 51.60 width. These new dimensions leave a display area of 4.065in, 0.455in bigger than the iPhone 4S's display.

The blog also claims that the iPhone 5's display is made with the same material as the iPhone 4S, but it 0.1mm thinner.

The leaked part also indicated that the front facing camera hole on the iPhone 5 will be positioned in the middle of the device, rather than the left as it is in the iPhone 4S. The report states that the camera could be smaller on the iPhone 5.

According to the report, the light sensor has moved to the right side of the iPhone, and has decreased in size, and the diameter of the home button hole has been reduced by 0.3mm.

It is expected that the iPhone 5 (or new iPhone) will arrive on 12 September at a special Apple event. Rumours suggest that it will be thinner and taller, with a two-tone metal back and a smaller dock connector.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
