A render also shows a screen that goes right to the edge of the handset. The display is also taller, coming closer to both the home button and the earpiece speaker, to ensure the same aspect ration as the current model's screen.

It's a look that matches the alleged iPhone 5 faceplate that appeared in another snap recently. ®
