New images have emerged showing what could be a fully assembled iPhone 5. Many experts are calling the photos the most detailed, authentic-looking images of the upcoming iPhone we’ve seen.
Japanese repair shop iLab Factory published the photographs on its site on Sunday, allegedly unveiling the body of Apple’s sixth-generation iPhone, which has been fully assembled from leaked parts from Chinese factories.
9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman first spotted the photos, which match previous leaks and rumours, showing a device with a taller body, larger display, smaller dock connector, and a two-tone metal back. Also published were photos of the home button, the volume keys, and more.
The leaked iPhone appears to have a thinner profile and bevelled edges. It also looks like the cameras and speakers may have been improved, and the front-facing camera is once again moved to the centre of the iPhone. The headphone jack has also been relocated to the bottom of the device.
Japanese blog Macotakara has also released a hands on video of what appears to be the same assembled iPhone.
Meanwhile, a Chinese accessories maker has added 66 cases to its iPhone 5 product range, all of which look as though they would fit the taller, thinner model shown in the leaked photographs.
