Fresh snaps of parts purportedly belonging to Apple’s next iPhone have surfaced online, this time parading more than just the back panel.
Originating from China (now there's a turn-up), the photos reveal what appears to be a fully assembled handset, sporting what we think is the same back panel that leaked last week.
Unfortunately, the low angles in which the snaps were taken make it very hard to tell whether the device is taller than the iPhone 4S, as had been long rumoured. However, what’s very much in evidence is the repositioned audio jack at the bottom and a smaller dock connector.
Although the casing looks metallic, there’s no way to be sure if it’s LiquidMetal, which has also been a mainstay of the rumour mill.
Apple unveiled the latest, sixth major iteration of iOS earlier this week, but made no mention of a new iPhone, which industry experts believe will land sometime in September or October.
Although specs are anybody’s guess right now, analysts' forecasts suggest the biggest improvements will be a four-inch display, a quad-core processor and 4G connectivity where it’s supported.
UPDATE: So, it turns out the photos are actually renders. Deceptively realistic, but fake nonetheless.
