  • ILab Assembles iPhone 5 From Leaked Parts


    Repair shop iLab released some interesting photos of an iPhone 5 mockup they assembled from alleged iPhone 5 parts floating around for months now.

    The final assembled product might provide the most accurate leak/mockup the outside world gets before the iPhone 5 is actually announced. The build includes leaked backplates, camera sensor, front plate, smaller dock connector, and other various components.

    The iLab mockup includes all the changes part leaks and rumors have been pointing to all year including the 19-pin connector, matte two-tone finish, 16:9 screen, altered front camera placement, and the new speaker/microphone design.



    Another leak of a supposed iPhone 5 surfaced earlier this week with its originators claiming the device was smuggled out of Foxconn’s factories. However, the photos were extremely sub par and the phone appeared to be in a case. These high-quality images from iLab provide the most complete picture of the upcoming iPhone 5 thus far, and hopefully is indicative of Apple’s final design.

    But, this is still unsubstantiated speculation, albeit very creative unsubstantiated speculation.

      I think that's the first non retarded thing you have ever said. I for one actually kinda like the new design if it's the new iPhone.

      Hey. No need to be hurtful. I just speak the truth about crapple products. Not to mention I actually know what I'm talking about when I argue unlike most of the people on here.

      the back is completely retarded..... the tone change is right next to the camera, and looks wrong. There is no way that is the next iPhone

      I think it looks awesome. Shame [...] iOS 6 will be so bad, I won't be tempted into giving up my iPhone 4.

      Well a lot of people thought the iPhone 4 was hideous when the first leak of the prototype surfaced, turns out a lot of people think it's a gorgeous looking phone now. I'm sure this will be the same, it'll grow on most of us if this is indeed the way it will look.

      This is bogus. Why would you even post this after last year's fiasco?

      Well i like it as well the headphone jack being on the bottom too. Keep the cord out of the way while using the phone. Everything is just a rumor until Apple gets on the stage and announces it new product.

      I for one won't ever like the two tone back if it's real, to me it looks like a 1980's Buick Oldsmobile type finish to it and I hated that

      God thats ugly. If rumors are true and Apple decides to change the 30pin connector to the smaller one, they just killed themselves.

      I like this concept a lot, and happy to see new changes and design. The matte finish on back cover actually appeals to me. Apple fangal, yup, so I'd buy it if it looked like a Snickers candy bar, but that's me.
      I have never been disappointed by any of the overall design changes yet.
      We will all find out soon enough, till then, the rumor mill is running at light speed as it always does, how fun.

      And your reasoning is....?

      Not concerned with the outside..its whats inside that counts. Most people including myself, smother their iDevice with a case..not going to see the actual phone 90% of the time anyway. Im hoping iOS 6 blows me away. Not sure what kind of design you are all looking for..? If you have a better design please let me see it. I don't see any of the Android devices blowing me away with their plastic bodies and 10" screens ahaha! Its a mock up you say..always more comments on stories of rumor rather than the stories with actual facts. When the phone drops you will all buy it no matter the look and you KNOW this
