More Pictures of iPhone 5 Replacement Parts Leaked [Photos]
So far, we’ve seen plenty of leaked iPhone 5 images and not just the images we’ve also seen a video in which next generation of iPhone’s shell was reviewed. Now, folks over iLab.cc got their hands on plethora of iPhone 5′s replacement parts images. These new leaked images reveal almost every detail regarding next generation iPhone’s internals. These images not only reveal more information about internals of iPhone 5 but they also confirm some rumored changes in over all form factor of the iPhone 5.
These pictures confirm Apple’s plan to replace their famous 30-pin dock connector with a new smaller 16 or 19-pin dock connector. A smaller dock connector is in discussion from quite some time now, recently, Reuters also confirmed Apple’s plan to replace 30-pin dock connector with a smaller 19-pin dock connector. As rumored, these pictures also show a taller 4 inch display. Looking at pictures it is really hard to say anything about the thickness of this leaked device but according to folks over iLab this particular device is thinner than Apple’s currently available iPhone 4S.
Leaked parts also show a different flex cable which is used hold iPhone’s Home button in place. As reported earlier these new pictures also confirm that Apple is planning to move 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom in next iteration of iPhone.
The only significant change in the front panel is taller display and relocation of FaceTime camera. FaceTime camera now sits right on top on iPhone’s earpiece. Remember that iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S’ FaceTime camera is on the left side of earpiece. It is still not confirmed why Apple is relocating FaceTime camera. The back panel in these leaked iPhone 5 images is pretty clear, in fact, this is the most clear picture of iPhone 5′s back panel available till now. The middle portion of iPhone 5′s back panel is made of (what looks like) brushed steel.
It is still not clear whether these pictures are of the iPhone 5 which is in mass production phase right now or a prototype which will never see the day light.
