According to MacRumours, the new iPhone 5 will have a larger display. The size is said to be about 4 inches (diagonally) and the confirmation is done all thanks to iPhone case manufacturers that are already selling the cases for the upcoming iPhone. The case also suggests that the new iPhone will be much slimmer that the iPhone 4. (That is the iPhone 4 in the upcoming iPhone 5 case)
MacRumours ordered some of the cases and as you can see from the pictures, the case is longer and wider. According to the case, the new iPhone should measure 4.7″ x 2.6″ and the device’s display would be approximately 2.24″ wide, making the display approximately 4″ on the diagonal.
