The upcoming iPhone compared to the 4S on video!!!

   This is definitely the closest we've come to seeing the next generation Apple iPhone, here it's being directly compared to an iPhone 4S.

   The video shows the backplate of what is supposedly the upcoming iPhone. There's a number of changes including a new button layout and a clear increase in size. The video below shows the two phones side-by-side, by component supplier ETrade Supply:

   The new phone has an aluminium unibody casing something that has been widely tipped to be the housing for the new iPhone. This does seem to be a return to the design of the original silver-backed iPhone with its black blocks at the top and bottom of the device, instead of the current design, which wields a metal band around the edge with glass around the front and back. This would be a smart move by Apple making the phone far more sturdy and drop resistant, something which is a common problem with the current crop of iPhones.

   The unreleased device in the video is the same width as the 4S, but taller. This gives you a widescreen display for when you're playing games and movies. The screen is 4 inches in size, exactly as previous leaks have rumoured.

    The new phone is also considerably thinner than the 4S, this is something which is needed in a new iPhone because the 4S, when compared to the Galaxy S3 and HTC One X, seems like a bit of a porker.

   The buttons around the frame of the phone remain in exactly the same places. But, the headphone socket has been relocated to the bottom of the phone. Also down there there's a much smaller entrance for a dock connector, which again follow the rumours that the traditional connector Apple connector will be replaced in the next version of Apple devices.

   This is a very good looking new iPhone, if this is how it proves to look, what do you think, do you want one? Let us know in the comments below.
