Picture from Case Maker Claims to Show iPhone 5

By - Source: SlashGear | B 37 comments

As summer rolls on, the rumored launch of the new iPhone draws closer.

With the summer half over, the launch of the iPhone 5 is drawing ever closer. We've heard plenty of rumors regarding the new iPhone, including whisperings of a larger display, a smaller dock connector, a slimmer design, 4G LTE, and much more. However, today's iPhone 5 report brings us something a little bit different.

 

What you see above are purported pictures of the new iPhone, which is thought to be arriving this fall. SlashGear reports that a Chinese case vendor is showing what looks to be iPhone 5 wrapped up in one of the company's new iPhone cases. The images seem to confirm previous reports regarding the presence of a smaller dock connector.

Sadly, the image doesn't tell us much else and offers no glimpse of the back of the device. Indeed, it's difficult to tell what changes Apple has made to the design other than a larger screen and a 4-inch connector. What it does tell us is that this iPhone will likely also be available in white, similar to previous iterations.

Though Apple's upcoming iPhone is commonly referred to as 'the iPhone 5,' it's thought Apple might ditch the '5' and simply call it 'the new iPhone,' as it did with the new iPad earlier this year.

    I'd much rather a SGS3.

    Looks like the unwanted bastard of an LG phone with a SGS3.
    If this is a real, non-doctored photo, it seems they're trending towards rounded corners more and more.
    Soon, they'll start suing other manufacturers that make phones with round corners.
    And, despite all this, still looks like a brick....

    Will it be even thinner?

    Honestly, I would like Apple to ditch this thing about constantly making their products smaller/thinner.
    Battery life > size

    Honestly when I hear people argue about Android or iPhone its the same as me hearing two people argue over Honda or Toyota. Really the differences are small and people just have to relax.

    People have preferences over one product over another. That's why when you walk down the street a lot of people aren't wearing the same shirts or pants as you, people have different tastes and for different reasons.

    I've seen people with multiple degrees who are really technically sophisticated have iPhones and I have seen people who know very little about technology have Android products. These are consumer products made for millions of different people.

    What you like I may like but for completely different reasons or I may dislike it for reasons you may not even consider. Give it a rest after 4 years people, they're just phones.

    redeemerSo the new iphone doesnt look good or has the same design elements no improvement, so youre going to get the ugliest phone of 2012 the samsung galaxy 3??? thats absurd

    I give zero craps about how a phone looks, just as long as it works and is well specced. Besides, it looks nice, to me.
