  • Supposed Pictures of the iPhone 5 Case Leak to the Interwebs

    The first image leaked by iFixyouri and reported by 9to5Mac


    The first purported images of the actual iPhone 5 have leaked, confirming many of the rumors surrounding the deviceís design if the photos from iFixyouri are in fact legitimate.


    Another higher res image leaked to 9to5Mac after news of the iFixyouri images broke

    The photos show case both a matte charcoal black iPhone 5 and a white model. The phone's feature the rumored brushed aluminum back and larger elongated screen. The other notable design change is the smaller dock connector, and placement of the headphone jack, which appears to be on the bottom of the phone much like the current iPod touch.

    The new location of the headphone jack does jive with an earlier part leak that claimed to be the headphone jack and earpiece. As MacRumors notes many observers commented that what was supposed to be the earpiece actually looked more like a smaller dock connector. The new location of the headphone jack would support this layout.

    Also, the bottom appears to feature larger speaker grills, which the source of the leak claims is an attempt by Apple to improve speaker performance with space freed up by the smaller dock connector.

    9to5Macís black leaked version of the iPhone 5 has the typical iPhone font printed on the back while the photos of the white version uBreakiFix received feature a slimmer font, and glossy rather than matte finish.



    It appears everyone is receiving images of the leaked iPhone from various sources. Expect more leaks in the coming weeks leading up to WWDC, even though Apple is unlikely to announce the new iPhone at the conference.

      Headphone jack on the Bottom... Really?
      Headphone jack is at bottom of iPod. This is so you can slide it in your pocket easy without putting it in backwards durrrr

      There are basically four types of cheap iphone 5 cases that you can buy. You can choose between a rubber, metal, leather or plastic type of case. If you are looking for an affordable case and your iPhone is never in much danger and does not fall out of your pocket much then a plastic case could fit your needs. If you have a larger budget and can afford a leather case and are after looks and style then a leather case could fit your needs best. If you are a construction worker and your iPhone is more danger than say the typical person then you might consider getting a metal case.

      Let's hope to God, that Apple doesn't go for anything like the grotesque mockup of the first post.

      The bezel to sreen ratio is of primary aesthetic importance - and great practical importance.
      However you grab that pug fugly minger of the OP, you're gunna have screen interaction ... whether you want it or not.

      Leave the bezel alone.
      Just scale the whole thing up, so the screen's 4.8", Apple.
      And maybe have three physical buttons at the bottom.
      Now THAT would be an iPhone I'd consider buying!

      Umm.... Thanks

      And if these pics are legit, I will definitely have to put a case on this phone. It's ugly. This can't be for real.... It simply has to be a fake or a prototype.

      Who knows, maybe Apple will change it slightly. The iPhone 4 concept was hated on also as another member has already suggested but now it's much loved lol
      This may probably be the same issue

      Ugly then is ugly now.
      It ain't getting any less pug fugly with time.
      In fact, the more I see it, the uglier it gets.

      This mockup is the typical juvenile, over-excited geekboy reaction we come to see from people with nothing else to do with their lives but waste it on photoshopping ridiculous mock-ups in the months running up to a launch.

      FFS!

      I hope the white matte portion color is just distorted by lighting bc it looks tannish and that's not cool. I have always wanted a white iPhone but keep ending up with black. This might be my chance to get a white one so I hope that matte portion is actually white...

      Yeah it should be white. I wouldnt expect apple to completely abandon their signature model colours

      Don't know if this has already been posted, but there's a vid of this now.
      iPhone 5 Back Cover or Middle Plate/A new iPhone Part Leaked - YouTube

      I especially liked the comparison to the 4/4S housing. This phone is clearly significantly taller.
      I was hoping they'd keep the same height and width and just fill some of the blank space with screen. Looks like the next iPhone will be even taller than many phones with 4.3" screen.

      You may have been viewing this thread in article view and not forum view. Article view tends to leave some of the later posts out.

      If these pictures end up the final retail production product, then no iPhone 5 for me.
