New iPhone 5 Repair Parts Leak Reveals Further Details [PICS]
Some fresh ‘iPhone 5’ leaked parts have surfaced on iLab.cc (via Cydia Blog) that reveals further details about the what the next iPhone hardware could entail, notably a thinner design and larger screen:
The leaked parts shows the bigger screen, different internals (such as a new flex cable holding the Home button in place), and the camera modules (front and rear). The camera module cutout looks to be larger, there is an enhanced version of speaker and microphone configuration at the bottom, new smaller dock connector (instead of 30-pin Dock Connector, 16-pin connector could be introduced). Another notable design change in the new iPhone front panel shows the FaceTime camera has been moved to a centered position above the earpiece speaker (it is currently to left of the earpiece in iPhone 4S and iPhone 4).
Earlier, we saw a hands on video of an alleged iPhone 5 shell compared with an existing iPhone 4S, and now more images have surfaced that look exactly like the purported shell in the video.
In the images below, the front FaceTime camera is centred and the two-toned back looks like brushed aluminum between glass. The bottom of the unit once again shows a smaller dock connector, which Reuters recently ‘confirmed’.
Check out the rest of the photos here. Let us know what you think in the comments–is this just a prototype…or could we see some similarities when the next iPhone is released this fall?
