Leaked photos show fully-assembled iPhone 5 vs iPhone 4 vs iPhone 3GSeptember 1, 2012 7 Email article | Print article
iPhone 5 will (supposedly) hit the world in roughly 20 days yet iPhone 5 rumors never cease. French blog NoWhereElse.fr has gotten hold of photos leaked by Chinese company iColorOS that appear to be of a fully-assembled iPhone 5 compared to iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 3G/3GS.
Looking at the photos, the iPhone 5 appears to have a larger screen and is taller and skinner than the predecessors. iPhone 5 appears to have its front-camera moved to the middle of the device above the front ear piece as opposed to iPhone 4′s left-of-ear-piece positioning. The back camera and flash on the iPhone 5 look to be of different quality than the one on iPhone 4/4S (hopefully better quality) with some unidentified circular shape sitting in between them. The back of the iPhone 5 is missing the traditional text printed on the bottom half of iPhones but it does have a black Apple logo and comes in a grayish steel and black color tone. Check it all out for yourself:
Maybe it is the affect of seeing the iPhone 5 next to an iPhone 4 but to me the iPhone 5 looks a bit weird — weirdly tall. Also, I hope the colors will change before iPhone 5 hits mass market otherwise this may be the ugliest iPhone to date. Feel free to share your thoughts on this matter in the comments below.
