Lately, there’s been an influx of evidence suggesting that the iPhone 5 will move from the line’s standard 3.5-inch display to a larger 4-inch 16:9 component. We’ve seen images of parts attributed to the iPhone 5 that seem to lend this theory credence, but if you were looking for something a little more technical, a newly-leaked schematic may just reveal some of the next iPhone’s measurements with high precision.

Now, we can’t say with any certainty that this document is accurate, and that the figures contained within are straight from the mouth of Apple, but if they are, they appear to further reinforce the notion of a screen right around four inches.

You won’t see any such measurements occurring directly on the schematic, but using the supplied figures of a display that’s 91.1 millimeters tall, and 51.42 wide, a little Pythagorean theorem action gives us a diagonal measurement of 104.6 mm, or 4.11 inches. That’s a smidge larger than we were expecting, but remember that these are the dimensions of the case we’re talking about, and not the screen itself; some wiggle room for tolerances shouldn’t be cause for alarm, and the final screen might be a hair over four inches, anyway.

These schematics also reinforce the notion that Apple’s repositioning the phone’s front-facing camera. Having seen this leak, we can’t help but wonder what other iPhone 5 secrets might soon be revealed, should additional schematics from this set – marked 4 of 10 – be published.
