Some new somewhat reliable details have emerged about the upcoming iPhone.

These from ilounge.com.

The rumors:

  • The new iPhone will indeed be longer and thinner than the iPhone 4 and 4S. Approximate measurements are 125mm by 58.5mm by 7.4mm—a 10mm jump in height, nearly 2mm reduction in thickness, and virtually identical width.
  • The new iPhone is expected to be made partially from Gorilla Glass 2, which can be manufactured thinner with identical strength to the earlier iPhones’ Gorilla Glass, or at the same thickness with greater strength.
  • The new iPhone will have a change in height will include a lengthening of the prior 3.5” screen to roughly 4” on the diagonal.
  • The new iPhone will have a new Dock Connector. It’s believed to have fewer pins than the prior 30-pin Dock Connector, perhaps only 16, and the shape of the hole is apparently closer to a pill shape than the prior rounded rectangle. It will be used on all upcoming devices, including an update to the iPod touch that’s expected this year.
