  • 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.

      in a fashion that i almost never follow i would like to make a prediction that i think will come of the next few weeks with apple.

      I feel as if the next iphone to be released will be an iphone 5 with a:
      a5 processor
      ~1gb of ram
      double storage for lack of there not being that upgrade in the iphone 4
      8mp camera
      shape of the ipad 2, simply because thats the next stage we already saw it with the itouch 4 as well
      4.1" screen, 3.7" is to small and doesnt compete with android and 4.3"-4.7" is to much of a leap forward for apple in order to make a long term obligation to WANT/NEED the next version
      edge to edge display, maybe not completely but close, much less than now
      maybe an elongated home button to mimic/accent androids 4 keys to allow for better single had navigation and swype gestures
      hd facetime over 3g (720p of course)
      slightly longer battery life, example. 3.5v upgraded to 3.7v
      better speaker, mic and noise caneltion mic as well as louder earpiece
      inclusion if at&t's 4g network, HSPA+, not to be confused with verizon's 4g/lte, the current market standards are simple 3g evolution and are merely 3.5/.75g networks, and very much not the same as the TRUE mobile 4G (TD-LTE) (100mbit mobile link, 1gbit stationary link)
      all of this will be included in a brushed aluminum? back similar to the ipad 2 and ipod touch 4g thinner than the iphone 4 now and ipod touch, with the 4.1" screen meaning this package is larger than current apple handhelds, and will be avaiable on all major US carriers, tmobile, att, verizon and sprint in a single true "world phone" handheld (inclusiing of sprint is questionable as it might be a better market idea to release the iphone 4s on there instead in a verizon version frame)

      iphone 4s will be released and will replace the iphone 3gs on the market
      it will have 8gb on memory
      and will feature a upgraded working antenna design
      there will be a seperate verizon version as neither of these models will offer 4g

      the iphone 3gs will become free with signing of 2 year contract

      the ipod touch 5 will be released with similar specs as the iphone 5
      there may be a 3g version (wow is apple trying to faze out mobile carriers and currently simply using them for data packages, with an itouch 5 we would see facetime over 3g (free calls to anyone with an idevice) imessages, over 3g of course (not paying carriers for messages), samsung just released chaton for all platforms so now you can communicate with all of your friends (at least the cool ones). all of this is being done so apple can used their $$$76B to buy/build their own mobile network and become the next CARRIER?

      and last maybe an ipad 3, or better known as ipad HD with a retina display
      no other upgrades, saved for ipad 4 next spring
