The video confirms some previous predictions, such as a taller design

A new video, which offers a hands-on demonstration of the next-generation iPhone, was released on YouTube yesterday. 

The nearly 5-minute video, which was released by parts reseller ETradeSupply, is not dramatically different from the leaked iPhone 5 pictures that hit the Web late last month. It confirmed a few suspicions while leaving other details in the dark for now. 

Last month, 9 to 5 Mac managed to get its hands on some leaked photos of the next-generation iPhone. The pictures showed the backplates and frames of two upcoming iPhones -- one in black and one in white. 

The video confirms what the pictures showed, which are backplates made of metal and plastic trim at the top and bottom. The metal antenna is molded into these metal backplates, likely as a way of making a unibody enclosure for stronger, yet thinner and lighter gadgets.

It also clearly confirmed that the next-generation iPhone will be the same width, yet longer. The screen will reportedly be longer with a size of 3.999 inches diagonally and will have a resolution of 1136 x 640. The video also shows a smaller dock connector and a relocated headphone jack.

One aspect of the next-generation iPhone that is left unclear is the size of the SIM card. Many believe it will be smaller in the next-generation iPhone, and the video shows that the SIM card holder piece is smaller in the new iPhone back piece than it was in the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. However, there is no actual measurement of the SIM card itself.

Apple seems to be losing its ability to keep its suppliers quiet. Jobs would probably be treatening to take away their contracts with all these leaks. Only a matter of time before they bring every piece of the process in house so that they can operate like the wonka factory. I am sure some hipsters would make great umpa lumpas

I always thought Jobs was a bit of a Wonka.

He literally was a Wonka. He planned to give a factory tour to the buyer of the 1 millionth iMac, with a golden ticket and all. Didn't happen because all sweepstakes in CA that aren't state sanctioned lotto events have a mandatory "no purchase necessary" clause.

"jobs would be pissed"

Jobs was always pissed about everything. It was part of his mental illness.

Until the actual product is announced, it's just that, a leak. You're reading too much into it. The best part is some of these leaks can be elaborate decoys, deliberately designed to distract people from the real thing.

There have been cases of companies building entire accessory lines based on such product leaks, only to find out the hard way that they were fake.

"This week I got an iPhone. This weekend I got four chargers so I can keep it charged everywhere I go and a land line so I can actually make phone calls." -- Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
