New iPhone display rumors are about as common as political scandals. In other words, you can expect to hear a new iPhone display rumor multiple times a month, if not multiple times a week. Most of these rumors obviously won’t come true, but some are a bit more likely to happen. And the long-standing rumor of a new iPhone with an Edge-to-Edge display? Well, it’s something that makes sense and may just end up being implemented in the iPhone 5.
First, let’s start with a recently released new iPhone Edge-to-Edge display concept. It’s actually one that shows what the new iPhone may look like with Liquidmetal–but even more importantly than this, it also shows an iPhone 5 with a screen that goes from Edge-to-Edge of the iPhone. That naturally means more viewing space and a presumably bigger screen size without significantly increasing the size of the new iPhone itself.
One thing you’ll also notice about the picture is that the screen appears stretched downwards and that the home button appears smaller. All of this of course points to the new iPhone display being larger and the form factor of the iPhone 5 being largely unchanged thanks to a few tricks with the display.
Now, normally, we’re not a fan of Justin Bieber or his music–but his new music video for the song “Boyfriend” is actually worth watching because it just might be showing us what an Edge-To-Edge iPhone 5 may look like. Below is a screenshot from the video:
Look familiar? Well, it should as that looks an awful lot like an iPhone (based on the shape) and given the rumors of the Edge-To-Edge display, it would match the description perfectly. It’s slim, it features a big screen, and it’s sleek looking–all of which are expected attributes of the new iPhone.
However, it’s worth mentioning that there is no home button, speaker or camera visible in the screenshots….so it’s possible that Mr. Bieber may have been given an early prototype of the new iPhone to show off in the video. We can’t say for sure at this point.
So, readers, does the idea of an Edge-To-Edge iPhone 5 excite you?
