New iPhone 5 Pictures Leaked

We all whinge about the number of iPhone 5 rumours circulating the web, but we all continue to click on those links – and few have been as exciting as these alleged photos of a fully assembled iPhone 5 handset.

The source of these images is Apple repair shop iLab. We’ve seen alleged iPhone 5 components before – and many of them pretty convincing. But we’ve never seen a fully assembled device shot in such detail.

So what do we have here? Unless these photos turn out to be fakes or simply prototype units, the iPhone 5 will borrow a number of design cues from the iPhone 4 and subsequent iPhone 4S. Chiefly, we’re talking about the fundamental shape – all machined edges and rounded corners.

Rather than the pretty but somewhat fragile glass rear, the iPhone 5 would seem to be formed from some form of metal for the most part, with black detailing for the bezel surrounding the screen and for a couple of strips on the back. This design would tie the phone in more closely with recent MacBooks.


Going back to that screen, these pictures would appear to confirm those persistent report of a larger (around 4-inch) display with a widescreen (16:9) aspect ratio more in keeping with top-end Android smartphones.

This particular handset also appears to be a little slimmer than the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. With reports that Apple’s employing a technique that squashed the three layers of a typical smartphone touchscreen into two, this would make perfect sense.
