Chinese repair shop iLab (via CydiaBlog) has posted photos of what appears to be a full assembled or at least the complete enclosure of next generation iPhone.
The photos seem to mirror the next generation iPhone parts that have leaked so far and gives a very good idea of what ‘iPhone 5’ will look like (if the leaked parts are indeed the real deal).
Purported parts of the next generation iPhone have revealed that it will come with a taller display, large portion of the back panel made out of metal and the remaining part made of glass to give it a two-tone effect and smaller 19-pin dock connector to make room at the bottom for the headphone jack.
The leaked parts shows the bigger screen, different internals (such as a new flex cable holding the Home button in place), and the camera modules (front and rear). The camera module cutout looks to be larger, there is an enhanced version of speaker and microphone configuration at the bottom, new smaller dock connector (instead of 30-pin Dock Connector, 16-pin connector could be introduced). Another notable design change in the new iPhone front panel shows the FaceTime camera has been moved to a centered position above the earpiece speaker (it is currently to left of the earpiece in iPhone 4S and iPhone 4).
Apple is widely expected to unveil the next generation iPhone in September or October.
We would ideally prefer an all-new design rather than the incremental design change. What about you? Will you buy or upgrade to ‘iPhone 5‘ if it looks like this? Sound off in the comments.
