This could mean a 3.7” display which will be achieved by ensuring that the bezel is as thin as possible. This could actually make the next generation iPhone’s display an edge to edge one.
Another thing that this report points to is that the back could be made out of metal instead of glass.
This all comes despite rumors that the iPhone 5 will feature a 4.2 inch panel as sources from upstream panel suppliers have revealed that the iPhone 5’s panel size will still be less than 4 inches.
