The design of the phone is set to radically change. The new model (or at least one of the new designs in testing) looks "more like the iPod touch than the iPhone 4." The phone will be thinner than the iPhone 4, and may have a "teardrop" shape which goes from thick to thin (something along the lines of the MacBook Air profile).

Based on the information provided by thisismynext, which the image above is based on, the new phone will most likely have little to no bezel and will feature a 3.7 inch screen while "keeping the current resolution" but lowering "pixel density from 326 to 312" meaning a drop of 13ppi.

That button on the bottom is ugly. I do like the teardrop, though.

I believe that button isn't a physical hardware button, but rather, a capacitive touch button.

Great, now when you have it in your back pocket, forget its there, and sit down, your going to hear "CRUNCH" due to you breaking your phone, because there isnt enough material int he frame casing to support your weight. It WILL happen, i promise.

Buuut, it won't be Apple's fault. You'll hear Jobs say, "You're sitting on it wrong."

Already been deemed false by MacRumors.

The most accepted rumor is that the iPhone 5 will basically keep the same design as the iPhone 4 but with minor updates and changes.

I doubt this. Just yesterday, I heard that the iPhone 5 design would be almost identical to the iPhone 4. I'm not believing anything until some guy leaves the iPhone 5 in a bar like last year. xD

Anyone who actually uses their back pocket for valuables deserves what they get.

There is nothing wrong with the industrial look of the iP4. All they have to do is make the back out of aluminum, and not glass XD
