New iPod Touch Front Panel Leaks

The front panel from what is thought to be the next-generation iPod Touch leaked this morning.

The interesting fact about this panel is that it measures 4.1-inches diagonally, which shows that the device will sport a larger screen when it launches.

Tech sites MacRumors and BadGizmo Repair also posted what could be the camera sensor for the next generation iPhone today and in the picture of the component, there is not much difference from past iPhone cameras. However, the older models do not have an LED flash sensor.

Production of the iPhone 4S is said to have been slowed down in order to begin ramping up production on the next-generation model, according to industry analyst Shawn Wu.

The new iPhone is expected to sport a 4-inch display as well.

Three major publications have all weighed in on the screen for the next-generation iPhone, including the Wall Street Journal, Reuters and Bloomberg.

All three of these publications are reporting that the device will have a display that will measure in at 4 inches.

This is not a surprise to those who have been following the iPhone 5 rumor mill since the 4S launch back in October of last year.

The 4S was expected to have a larger display, but ended up being released with an identical body type to its predecessor, the iPhone 4.

The 4-inch display is also said to be the brainchild of Steve Jobs, who is said to have worked closely with Apple on the sixth-generation iPhone before his passing at the end of last year.

The iPhone has sported a 3.5-inch Retina display since the original version's launch in 2007. However, many critics are now saying Apple needs to change its approach due to increasing competition.
