  • Possible iPhone 5 Design Spoiler: Case Mate Launches Product Page for iPhone 5 Cases


    Case Mate, the makers of various smartphone cases and accessories, is raising eyebrows Thursday evening in the wake of launching a series of product pages that list - get ready - iPhone 5 cases.

    If the cases accurately represent the design of the device which will be housed within them, then, ladies and gentlemen, it appears that the 5th generation iPhone is going to be dramatically different (primarily in light of the much wider screen) from its predecessors in terms of the device's yet-to-be revealed design.

    Of course, it still remains to be seen if we're dealing with fantasy or reality here, as Case Mate may simply be projecting the concept of an iPhone 5 case based on information that may not ultimately manifest in the actual iPhone 5 design. "We've spoken to iPhone accessory makers in the past who told us it's very rare for Apple to give this kind of early access to a new device's design," Business Insider reports.

    On the other hand, there's a strong indication that the images do, indeed, spill the beans on the real iPhone 5 design. The evidence? The pictures have already been yanked from the company's website. Some believe this would suggest that Apple asked for the images to be removed. Is that pure speculation? Yes. But it's certainly not without a logical underlying assumption, particularly as we are no more than a few weeks away for the iPhone 5's grand unveiling.

      That's the 4S. From what I've seen/heard so far, we're going to see two phones from Apple. The iPhone 4S which is an internally beefed up iPhone 4, and the iPhone 5 which has the iPod Touch styling.

      i have heard this too, however, what financial gain could be made by making two internally identical phones with different exterior form factors?

      IMO the iphone 4 design will be dropped. the 4S/5 will be the tear dropped/shape with iPod style. Whatever that is (coming soon photo), its not the new iPhone.

      Easy, just raise the price of the iPhone 5 to $300 on-contract.

      And don't forget, the iPhone 5 is said to have a larger screen, and different form factor. The difference between a 3G[s] and the iPhone 4 was a better screen and different form factor.

      Seeing how a new iPhone is a status-symbol in today's society, people will gladly spend the extra $100 to show off to their friends.

      They won't, they will differ more than this. People seem not to be thinking.

      Also noticed this after a little digging on the case-mate site, nothing that hasn't already been seen but pretty shocking that its actually still uploaded on their site!
