New iPhone prototypes have larger screens than previous generation iPhones

Will the new iPhone have a larger screen? Prototypes being tested have a 3.999 inch screen (rectangular dimensions are 1.9632 x 3.484 inches), but it goes farther than that: Apple is not extending just the display size, but also the resolution. Instead of a 640x960 resolution, the prototypes have a 640x1136 resolution; this is much almost a 16:9 ratio, meaning widescreen videos will not have "black bars" and will fill the entire screen without any cropping. The larger resolution also means that it is likely that in iOS 6 could be a fifth row of icons above the dock. The home button will remain, but so far it seems that the prototypes have a new dock connector incompatible with previous Apple mobile devices.

The prototype that has been floating around is seeming more like the real deal as WWDC approaches.
What's funny about that picture is they are both running google maps, when apple is expected to be releasing their own maps app and kicking google maps to the curb. A little bit ironic... don't you think?
