Images purported to show case designs for the iPhone 5 have leaked online, seemingly confirming rumours that Apple will radically redesign its smartphone for its next iteration.
Sourced by Mobile Fun, sketches for the cases appear to reveal that the next-gen Apple handset will come in at just 7.6mm thick – compared with the iPhone 4S’s 9.3mm.
Assuming they’re the real deal, and we’re not entirely convinced they are, the designs also corroborate chatter that the iPhone 5 will be taller at 123.83 millimetres. It is thought that the larger form factor is to incorporate a larger screen.
And completing the hat-trick of rumour confirmations, there’s a sign too that Apple will indeed adopt a smaller dock connector. A decision that we have to say seems very odd to us, given that it will render Apple’s vast accessory range obsolete overnight.
Expected to tip up in September or October, the iPhone 5’s mooted spec sheet is expected to take in a quad-core processor and 4G support – in countries with the network infrastructure, anyway.
