iLounge Says This Is What the Next iPhone Looks Like

Do you have your heart set on a 3.5-inch iPhone? Too bad, says iLounge, which claims Apple's next handset will sport a 4-inch display and a metallic body. Let's snort some rumor lines!

As you can see in iLounge's mockup, the purported design will look much like current iMacs—silver aluminum framed by black glass. It looks gorgeous on a desktop, so we don't doubt Apple can replicate the Star Trek chic look on something much smaller. It also makes great practical sense, as it'd make the new iPhones a lot less shatter-prone.

But that screen! That four inch screen! It'd mean an entirely new aspect ratio, with the addition of new pixels at the top and bottom—which would be an adjustment for apps and those who make 'em, as well as us. We're still keen on the 3.5-inch feel, but bigger and bigger is clearly the way the tides are shifting these days. It... might... be... inevitable.

Extra bonus speculation!
