Leaked iPhone 5 images appear
Just a couple of days ago Apple took the stage to unveil the next version of iOS, iOS 6, but obviously many were left underwhelmed as Apple did not unveil the next iPhone. Well, it looks like a chinese website by the name of TGBUS has obtained some images of the device itself. We obviously cannot vouch for the authenticity of these images but the site claims that these images are not Photoshoped.
Perhaps, at first brush, the device seems to be significantly slimmer and the back of the device features a combination of a matte finish and glass on top of the camera module. The matte finish could perhaps be aluminum but we cannot confirm anything at this point of time.
Another, notable thing is that the device looks to be slightly taller than the iPhone 4S, that tows the line of rumors suggesting a 3.95-inch display in the new iPhone.
Other new features noticed by us on the basis of the images posted include, a smaller dock connector, a color matched antenna wrapped around the device, a relocated audio jack, a larger camera lens and flash, and new speaker grills.
There are many conflicting reports regarding the launch of the next iPhone, that either suggest a September or an October release.
As noted above, we cannot vouch for the authenticity of the images and in fact iPhoneItalia is reporting that this is a render born out of a user posted image n Flickr, though they also admit that this might be a fair representation of the final device.
