  • Leaked iPhone Case Suggests iPhone 5 will be Thinner and Wider


    Apple may have let the cat out of the bag when they released the latest beta version of Photo Stream with an iPhone icon that has different dimensions than the current model. It may have simply been an error of some kind, but now we have more tangible evidence that the next iPhone model will be larger than the iPhone 4. A new iPhone case was recently uncovered that is significantly wider and thinner than the current iPhone model.

    Italian website MacityNet.it recently published photos that show an iPhone 4 sitting inside a new iPhone 5 case. The size difference is instantly noticeable. If this does turn out to be a genuine iPhone 5 case, then the next iPhone model will be huge compared to the last four models.

    Itís not uncommon for case designers to receive the dimensions for new products from Apple before they are even announced. This is done so new cases can be manufactured and go on sale as soon as Apple launches a new product. In the past, case designs have been fairly good early indicators for new iPhone models. Occasionally, Apple makes changes at the last minute, however, rendering early design leaks unreliable. Itís important to take images such as these with a grain of salt. Although cases may in fact be genuine at the time of manufacturing, until Apple releases an actual product, they may all end up in the trash bin.

    Hopefully, this new case will turn out to be the real deal and point to a larger and thinner iPhone 5 model. Apple usually holds a Special Event in September to launch new iPod models. Apple didnít release a new iPhone model in June or July of this year as they traditionally have done. Itís very likely that Apple will use this event to unveil the iPhone 5 later this month.

    The iPhone 5 is sure to be a giant success for Apple when it is released, and if these images are any indication, then this may be the first iPhone that is actually a giant.

      Interesting concept, my upgrade was due last month so I went ahead and grabbed a Galaxy S2 which by all means is not a bad phone especially with CM7 Mod installed. After using it for a while and then using an iPhone the iphone feels tiny and fat to me, a larger screen and thinner design is a must if I'm to switch back to an iphone. And also the galaxy s2 fits into the pocket fine and feels good to hold too.

      That case probably isn't even for an Apple product to begin with. Don't believe the hype guys. Sorry!

      Right there with you. The EVO has a great form factor.

      I will laugh non-stop for probably 6 hours if it turns out to be for a completely different product and the next iPhone's body is designed exactly the same as this one.

      Ditto... Heck I even seen a iPhone look-a-like(to put it nicely) in Italy a few weeks ago that would fit this case. They were selling right next to some Folex watches, and fOakley glasses at the local market...

      Guess we will see in a month or so...

      Part of the fun of rumors is that they are yet to be proven or debunked. Remember how many people thought that the prototype iPhone 4 was "fake" and "totally against what Apple stands for in design" because it wasn't all just curves?

      You're all saying there is no mute switch yet there is an opening on the opposite side of the volume buttons. And as for the dock slot being "too big?" Okay... remember there needs to be space for the screws and also for it to fit comfortably on there.

      This might be an iPhone 5 case after all. We'll just have to wait and see.

      me too!ditched the iPhone 4 a few days ago for the galaxy s2!....kind if regret it now though. If apple do make the screen and speed comparable to the Gs2 then i will definitely go back! Going from i4 to the Gs2 was not a smart move in my opinion. the three things i miss the most are the screen resolution the ease of use and less typos (even though the screen is bigger its got nothing on my iPhone in terms of accuracy) just make the i5 speedier and screen size biager and I'll be 1st in line.

      Guys, when the iPad 2 came out, I believe that's the biggest hint on what the iPhone 5 will look like. A mini iPad 2.
