The iPhone 5 will be almost identical to the iPhone 4S


The launch of iPhone 5 is imminent. As the date for its launch has been confirmed for September 12th , we just need to find out some details about the next Apple smartphone.

The truth is that the information we give today may disappoint many. Apparently, some of those who have been lucky enough to get their hands on the new iPhone, declare that its external design is practically the same as that of the iPhone 4S and the 4.

The main differences from previous models are the four-inch screen with 16:9 aspect ratio , a metal back, the new miniature dock connector and the headphone output on the bottom.

Some of the surveys carried out by specialised websites on this issue determine that approximately half of the users want the design to remain the same , and the other half prefer a radical change in appearance.

However, a good number of leaks that we have seen these days pointed to major changes in the aesthetics of the terminal, differing from previous models. However, the iMore editor, Rene Ritchie, dares to say that the changes will not be as many as they seem . In fact, the terminal will be quite similar to its younger brothers in appearance.

What do you prefer? On the one hand, an almost identical style will disappoint users who wanted a renewal of the terminal , as they were already tired of their current iPhone 4 or 4S. On the other hand, those users who have never had one, will probably not mind that the new version resembles the previous models, except for small details.
