The current iPhone 4 has a 3.5 inch display while the iPhone 5 is expected to have have a display size between 3.5 and 3.7 inches and will also get a thinner bezel which will make the screen look larger than it actually is.

DigiTimes report:

The rumored specifications of iPhone 5 include a 4- to 4.2-inch HD touch panel, 8-megapixel camera, Full HD video recording, A5 dual-core processor and new ultra-thin industrial design; however, the sources believe that the leaked specifications are rather the market’s expectations for iPhone 5. The sources pointed out that the upcoming iPhone will not have many differences compared to iPhone 4 in terms of components and the panel will still be less than 4-inch.

The sources added that the iPhone 5 will adopt a 3.5- to 3.7-inch panel with a design to allow the bezel of the panel to become thinner and make the screen look larger.

iPhone 5 is also expected to land on Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T and to be a world phone with dual-mode CDMA / GSM bands.
