Apple have always managed to generate a frenzy around their products and the arrival of the iPhone 5 will be no different. Thanks to images revealed online, we could be looking at the first set of believable images for the next iteration of the iPhone.
Whilst these images are possibly not of the final build of the machine, 9to5Mac have placed up high resolution images and even dismantled the shell to give us a better insight to what the device will be like – obviously there are no technical specifications to share as of yet.
From the start it seems that the iPhone 5 will be the same width as the current iPhone 4 and 4s but will be longer, providing a bigger screen in the process (approx. 1136 x 640 in resolution, with a screen size of 3.999 inches). It also looks like the iPhone 5 will have a unibody design with a mostly metal body as opposed to the glass of the previous models. The metal unibody design would allow for a sturdier phone and for the phones antenna to be built into the casing allowing for more internal space and a larger battery – as rumoured for use in the new phone to extend battery life.
The biggest change has been seen in the much rumoured new smaller dock connector on the bottom of the device, along with the moving of the headphone jack to the bottom of the phone. Whilst the headphone jack movement mimics that of the iPod Touch, the smaller dock connector renders previous iPod/iPhone docks entirely obsolete – unless an adaptor is created.
Below are a host of images from 9to5Mac for you to have a look at:
