Hard-copy schematic blueprints supposedly showing details of the upcoming iPhone 5 have been released by Cydiablog, closely resembling a video leaked yesterday.

If both are correct it means that Apple has increased the display screen size, and that the front camera has been moved.

According to the blueprint, the opening in the case for the device’s display measures approximately 4.1in, which is slightly larger than the 4in display that had been predicted previously.  The schematic also confirms the repositioning of the FaceTime camera on the front of the device. The current iPhone 4S’s FaceTime camera is located to the left of the earpiece. The new design centers it above the earpiece.

The video which emerged from Macotakara shows a hand comparing a new front panel to the current iPhone. The next-generation iPhone appears to be taller than the current iPhone, with an estimated 10mm difference in height. Macotakara gives the display’s diagonal size as 4.07in. The width is the same as the current iPhone, and the Home button looks slightly smaller.
