via 9to5Mac Tech blog 9to5Mac has attained and posted pics of purported iPhone 5 leaks and so far the pics are in line with what the rumors have been thus far: larger screen, metal back, 4G support. In order to support a larger screen (3.999 inches diagonally), the next gen iPhone will grow taller, but the width will remain the same for a resolution of 1136 x 640.
The pictures indicate that a large portion of the back is made of metal, although it is not confirmed if this is done for aesthetics or functionality (or both). Whatever the case, we assume this is Apple’s stab at creating a unibody enclosure for mobile devices. This tactic makes for stronger, yet thinner and lighter devices. This makes sense if Apple is going to give the new iPhone LTE support without sacrificing battery life.
Other important things to note are the longer, smaller dock connectors Apple is introducing on this iPhone which should support iPhone accessory manufacturers. Apple has also moved the earphone jack to the bottom corner of the device and redesigned the speaker grills.
Expect an early fall release in September or October (1 year cycle) alongside iOS 6. Pics below
