iPhone 5 Engineering Samples Leaked
10/07/2012 | Nicholas Griffin
New engineering samples of the iPhone 5 have just leaked giving us a view of what the phone might look like, from the images leaked on GottaBeMobile shows that the iPhone 5 will come in a 120mm tall and 58.6mm wide, the current iPhone 4S is 115.2mm tall with the same width, alongside that the samples also have a space for the home button, so if real we will still keep that thankfully.
The taller size could mean that larger 4.5 inch screen rumors are true, which would be a good thing, the image do not show much about the display but there is a second image which gives us a idea of what the back panel might look like.
The image shows that the camera will remain in the current position of the top left corner next to the flash, which is the same for the antenna design, with no change in the thickness or antenna this could mean no LTE support as without a thicker design they cannot put in a thicker and bigger battery to keep the device charged.
However Apple is known for their design skills and we could end up with an all in one display like the new MacBook Pro with Retina display which has had all the internals soldered together to allow for a thinner design.
