More iPhone 5 Parts Leaked From China

By - Source: 9to5 Mac | B 29 comments

Leaked iPhone parts photo confirms a few previous rumors.

Late July and early August have been busy times for the iPhone 5 rumor mill. With the September announcement inching closer and closer, more photos and videos appear, detailing everything there is to know about the upcoming device. By now, we'd say it is petty safe to assume the new iPhone will be sporting a longer screen, capable of displaying 5 rows of icons on the home screen as opposed to the current 4.

Now, another leaked photo is making its rounds from Chinese forum iColorOS. If the photo turns out to be real, it could prove to be a clear confirmation of the information reported from the previous video released by iPhone parts manufacturer ETrade. In addition to confirming screen dimensions and design, the photo also backs up some other rumors, such as a new micro-SIM card slot and smaller home buttons.

With all of the rumors buzzing about, we can now paint a possible picture of what's to come: a longer, stronger scratch-resistant screen, miniaturized dock connector, 5 rows on the home screen, two-tone metal casing and updated speaker arrangement. However, if history has shown us anything it's that we can never be too sure. We'll just have to wait until the rumored September 12th announcement to find out. Until then, expect more rumors and leaks to generate additional buzz.

    For those people who want to know what parts they are:

    Top left to right (1) Light sensor and noise reduction circuit, (2) volume button, slient button and power circuit, (3) vibration motor, (4) sim card holder

    Bottom left to right (1) screen cover (I don't think it is, it is the screen holder, but screen cover is what it says on the label on the picture), (2) Home button (top is for black bottom is for white), (3) Screen holder (yeah, whoever labelled this picture definitely swap the label for screen cover and screen holder around).

    In other news,. Apple wants Samsung to pay "$30 per smartphone, $40 per tablet" for its patent

    I really hope this isn't the final product..for apples sake. A slightly longer version of the 4S is not what people have been waiting for. The competition would still shatter this phone in terms of design, style, screen size etc. Apple is making it too obvious now with these little "incremental" upgrades in each new version of their iPhone. They are clearly trying to maximize profits because they know all the apple fanatics will buy it no matter what it features. A stretched out version of the 4S? With a Two-tone back? Looks like garbage to me actually, hopefully its just a prototype.

    Been using Symbian for 10 years and then iOS for 2 years. I just switched to Galaxy S III from iPhone 4 last week. All I can say is...

    I hope this phone is wider as well. The main reason I dropped my iPhone 4 was because there were many more Android phones that fit my larger hands better, and a longer iPhone doesn't solve that problem at all.

    As much as I love my Apple products, if the shoe doesn't fit, don't buy it. I'm holding out for some potentially good WP8 devices (on VZW).

    wemakeourfutureDoes Samsung have a patent for that? Yah didn't think so.


    No. But B&O has a patent for a two-tone brushes aluminium phone casing.

    Take that back. Some of the new WP8 phones look really nice.

    ap3xConsidering that the iPhone 4 came out 2 years ago and that no one has anything that competes with the design and style at this point. Large plastic phones that feel like nothing is in them I am not sure anyone will rival the design of the iPhone anytime soon. At least not at the price point everyone is competing. Just because you have a larger screen does not mean that your phone is designed and stylized better.



    Hahahahahaha, wait you're serious?

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
