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 device’s 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.
9to5Mac’s 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.

2 tone white/matte finish? Um really waiting for everyone's thoughts on these. This of course has to be the iPhone 5 right?

That has got to be a fake on the ifix your i photo unless apple swap to a micro usb for power and sync. I cant see apple doing that as there are loads of speaker docks with the current dock connection on it. If they did i can see a lot of unhappy people.And is that a a headphone jack at the bottom ?. If this is the iphone 5 why apple why ?. It looks so bad.

Very nice! Now this is news. One thing tho, I'm not sure If I like the contrast in shades of the white matte finish and the white plastic. Not sure if those two go together but whatever. I'm sure I'll love it once I get used to it.

its not just all about they wont do this because of so many products. there are things in this world called standards. and in the UK and Germany i think there is a law that every mobile phone has to be able to connect via micro usb.. thats why apple sell the micro usb connecter. and it would be better for the headphone jack at the bottom... you can have it plug in at the same time in a dock and then plug head phones into the dock...

It's not the iPhone 5, one it will be the SIXTH iPhone and it will be called the new iPhone.

Interesting. I'm excited to see the actual finished product, whether it looks like that or not.

Why does the screen look so weird? I always thought the mockup pics were ugly, but now that this has surfaced, the way the screen is so "wrapped" on the edge of the phone looks odd...

Yeah was a typical bureaucratic EU ruling. Euro law is utter tosh. Aiming for a United States of Europe by surreptitious means. I live in the UK and I'm a complete euro sceptic, and frankly I fail to see why they can dictate to a company how to produce their product. Apple is a US company.....
