[Update] iPhone 5 Photo Leaked, Bigger Display, A5 Processor and 1430 mAh Battery

Share:

Update 1: MacPost has revealed another new image of a partially assembled iPhone 4S, and mentions it is the other side of the image posted below.

Therefore, what we saw earlier this morning is actually the iPhone 4S and not the iPhone 5, as the white hardware reveals. You can even see the ‘connect to iTunes’ activation screen:

As pointed out by phoneArena, a partially-assembled iPhone 5 photo has been leaked on the web which has been published first on a Chinese microblogging site Weibo. The image claims to give us a glimpse at the innards of an iPhone 5 revealing a logic board with A5 processor, the same dual-core chip used in iPad 2, a larger LCD back panel that apparently runs from edge to edge and a stronger battery  of 4.2v, 1430 mAh in place. For comparison, iPhone 4 has a 3.7 V battery which holds 1420 mAh of charge.

As published by MacRumors:

The image clearly shows an A5 chip, which is of course expected for the iPhone 5. There has been some debate, however, about whether Apple will be introducing an iPhone 4-like model that has been unofficially dubbed the iPhone 4S, a redesigned iPhone 5, or both.

The battery included in the leaked photo is also generating some conversation, as it appears to be the same model number is seen in previous photos, but carries slightly different specs.

This new photo appears to have the charge of 1430 mAh stamped directly on it, but curiously seems to list the voltage at 4.2 V.

Looking at the above picture, notice that the components on the right would actually flip over to the left. Also, some components clearly appear to be missing such as the antenna and a body cage to hold it all in place. Do you think this one could actually be the real deal?

    I dont get it. It looks like an iPhone 4 to me. Am I missing something? What is cool about this?

    It doesn’t make sense because why would apple mass produce something that doesn’t have iOS 5 installed in it. This clearly doesn’t if we are suppose to believe it because it has the iTunes connect logo and iOS 5 is suppose to be iCloud connectable..it would defeat their purpose of iCloud selling it packed with iOS 4 in it. I know iOS 5 is still in beta testing..hell I am running the beta right now…that’s why that doesn’t make sense to me..

    then u must read think logically.. what doesnt make sense? that apple would mass produce something that doesnt have ios 5?
    where does it say that the “new” iphone (iphone4/4s/4+/5) wont have the new ios5?
    Whatever the new device may be, its gonna have the ios 5. Even if two versions of iphone gets released, both will have ios 5…. why would you think that?
    you ask, why would i think that? becuz apple wants to earn money.. apple will put ios 5 on all new devices including and upto iphone 3gs. (probably..)

    … it’s created by apple… apparently they are the king of tech. and whatever they make.. it sells… just ask around…
    you may not think it’s cool. but others do.

    The point is it has an A5 chip and different battery than the current iPhone 4. So, either this is the upcoming iPhone 4S or 5. Part of the speculation than runs rampant in the weeks before the new device launches.

    I don’t think your understood what I meant. Sorry if I wasn’t clear. I never said they won’t put ios 5 on their new phones that’s just silly. I’m just saying that in the event they heHenares conference when they released ios 5 they mentioned being able to “cut the cord” and stray away from relying on itunes from the get go.. So I just thought they would try and build this iOS into their new phones. I’m not saying they have to. If they don’t that’s also fine.

    Was any information released about the camera?

    I would think that the iphone 5 and iphone4S would both get a camera upgrade…
