iPhone 5 case designs have been apparently leaked, and are accessible ‘everywhere’ in China. What if these exact case dimensions were taken and outsourced to a graphic designer to render them into real life? That’s exactly what MacRumors did when they hired Italian firm Ciccarese Design, the team behind the beautiful ‘iPhone Air’ concept.
The final dimensions of the new design are calculated to be: 4.33″ x 2.36″ and .27″ thickness at the top and .21″ at the bottom In comparison, the iPhone 4 dimensions are: 4.5″ x 2.31″ x .37″. So the new design is actually shorter than the existing iPhone 4, but slightly wider and thinner.
Take a look at the pictures below, and you’ll see the Home button has adopted a wider shape to adopt possible gestures, tapered edges, and a larger screen.
Will the iPhone 5 looks similar to the images above? I think they look pretty damn good, if those alleged cases are real. We’ll have to wait and see.
