In another detailed insider report, KGI analyst Mingchi Kuo elaborates on his predictions for the highly anticipated iPhone 5.  He thinks the next generation smartphone from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will feature a four-inch screen with a 16.9 ratio and front-facing  high-definition camera. The screen may also feature a resolution of 1,136 x 640 pixels.  Kuo is getting his predicted specifications from Apple supply chain source.

Kuo also claims that sources indicated that Apple scratched the idea of a screen that was bigger than 4.3 inches because a larger phone would be harder to use and require more battery power. Furthermore, if the phone was a little bit longer in length, it wouldn’t work so well with existing iOS applications. The phone’s rear camera should remain at the expected eight megapixels.

He also echoed another report that Apple was to make their next phone thinner but that their battery capacity would probably remain at 1,400mAh. Other reports have indicated that the iPhone 5 may feature a redesign and 4G LTE connectivity.

Little change, big improvements. That appears to be the motto of Apple and their innovative products. The next iPhone is still expected to launch in stores sometime this fall in September or October.

Kuo’s report is just a speculation. So far no rumors regarding the iPhone 5 have yet to be proven as true.

The Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off next week in San Francisco and it’s expected that iOS 6 will be a hot topic at the conference and that hopefully should provide some insight to what we can expect from the next iPhone generation and well as the future of the iPad.

I can’t wait for the day when we get an official announcement regarding the iPhone 5 and the specifications. We’re hoping that will be the matter of a few days. We’re also hoping that some of these rumors about the specs are true.
