  • More iPhone 5 Component Pictures Leak, Battery, Camera Lens, Audio Flex Cable



    Another round of alleged iPhone 5 component pictures have leaked (thank you TVC Mall), and while not terribly exciting, do offer a few potential hints at what iPhone 5's camera and battery performance could be.

    The first rumor that would get the axe if these components turn out to be legit: the iPhone 5 sporting a dual flash system. The leaked camera component retains the single flash system of the iPhone 4, and hopefully sports the rumored 8 megapixel sensor.




    The leaked pictures of the iPhone 5's battery show a battery that is nearly identical to the iPhone 4's battery. The specs of the batteries are nearly identical too. The alleged iPhone 5 battery is rated at 3.7V and 5.3Whr and the iPhone 4's is rated at 3.7V and 5.25Whr. The similar specs might mean the iPhone 5 could see battery performance verily similar to the iPhone 4. Battery life could also be better or worse depending on how energy efficient iOS 5 and the newer A5 processor are.

    Lastly the iPhone 5's audio jack flex cable has been leaked, brining the number of leaked components thus far up to five (the proximity sensor, and front facing camera lens previously leaked). Expect more leaks in the next few weeks as iPhone 5 production likely ramps up to meet it's rumored October release.

      Apple has always kept battery life in mind regardless of the phones features that and the speakers have been upgraded each time thankfully

      @TheDirtyDiddler is 100% currect. The battery life on the iPhone is crappy. The battery life on an Android phone is also crappy. Just because the iPhone's battery life is less crappy, does not mean it is any good. Unfortunately there really has not been a big battery breakthrough in the past 40 years. Keep in mind that the first lithium-based battery that worked at room temperature was created by Exxon in the early 70's. A few years latter, the first lithium-base recharable battery was created. Currently batteries drain fast, take a while to charge, and have a short life if you deep cycle them.

      I think the battery basically confirms no LTE connectivity. Maybe HSPA+.

      It already has HSPA+ support, I'm writing this on HSPA+ which has been around (at least in Canada) for years

      Verizon and At&T have LTE in the U.S. even though they both have very limited coverage

      This is such bogus information that people keep circling around. The standard and definition for 4G has been changed to fit so that the tech we are currently calling 4G is, in fact, 4G.

      Here is an article, for those that require it.
      ITU says LTE, WiMax and HSPA+ are now officially 4G

      The internet is littered with other such articles. Let's please stop this nonsense of "LTE and WiMax are not TRUE LTE technologies". This was true at one point, but not anymore.

      Itís hard to believe. I have seen a concept video of iphone 5, and itís so sleek that components shown here will not get fixed in it.

      Yes, but lithium ion batteries as a whole need to become a thing of the past.
