  • Chinese Trading Website Leaks Supposed 'iPhone 5G' Case

    A well-known Chinese trading website has presented what they call the "newest design crystal case for Apple iPhone 5g." Images of the case in question can now be found at Alibaba.com. Although they are showing what is, admittedly, a mock-up of the fifth-generation iPhone, the visible attributes are worth noting.

    Refusing to disappear from the rumor-mill are assertions that the next generation iPhone will sport an edge-to-edge screen. Based on the freshly published image above, it appears that Apple has relocated the flash component of the iPhone 4 to the far right on the top of the next generation device.

    Of course, when it comes to new or refreshed product releases at Apple, nothing can be guaranteed until Steve Jobs personally raises the curtain in San Francisco. Nonetheless, we've seen far too man instances in the past of case-makers being privy to advanced knowledge to outright dismiss image leaks like the one coming out of China this weekend.

    As we covered yesterday, analyst Peter Misek with Jeffries & Co. has come forward with claims that Apple's next generation iPhone will not be the iPhone 5 after all. Given the minor cosmetic changes we've all anticipated, the refreshed touchscreen handset will be released as the iPhone 4S. Misek's report, however, did not state if the iPhone 4S will sport the edge-to-edge screen.

      Also, the tw.apple.pro site says that
      "Photoshop I get the following picture shows the imaginary figure: P" - that was the google translate translation- about the original image in this article. That tells me that someone else - another (kind-of) reliable source- says that it is fake

      Although - I wouldn't be suprised if apple moved the flash away from the camera.

      I'm definitely liking that edge to edge screen! Think they can squeeze another inch diagonally? a 4.5" screen would be amazing.

      Nope, I just did a measurement and if they expand it to the edge it will be 4" diagonal. Heck, that would still be great.

      It would be stupid for me to get my hopes up, no doubt. But I'm finding that I'm more and more interested in the screen types of devices, and the more I learn about them, the bigger the factor they have on my next purchase.

      So, bring on the 5.5" 1920x1080 iPhone screen!

      Am guessing they moved the flash away from
      The camera due to the fact that the white i4 bleeds some of the flash into the photo so it really doesn't take clear photos as the black i4. So that could be the reason why they decided to separate the two.
