The alleged photos of different parts of the next generation iPhone (popularly known as iPhone 5) including the complete set of the housing have been leaked online as the device goes into production in preparation for its Fall release.
Japanese repair shop Lab Factory was the first to publish the photos online on its website. The credibility of the firm to publish insider photos was the first that comes into mind for both average users and enthusiasts. Being a repair shop, it should remain private with everything it receives from manufacturers.
There is no information how it acquired these photos but supposing these are real, the company is in big trouble. The Cupertino-based tech giant has always been so private about its new devices that not even the big news firms can get a scoop of information. The truth is, I am expecting that another iPhone prototype will be lost this year by yet another Apple employee just like what happened last year and the year before that.
Also, another Japanese website, Macotakara, published a video on YouTube showing exactly what Lab Factory has shown on photos. The video is a proof that the photos are not rendered graphics but real parts caught on cam.
Both the photos and video showed the rumored two-tone casing of iPhone 5. While everyone waiting for its arrival is excited to finally see what Apple has in store for them, majority turned disappointed as the alleged casing suggests the next generation smartphone looks almost exactly the same as with iPhone 4S as far as design is concerned.
These photos aren’t proven to be iPhone 5’s real shots but they seem to fall in line with rumors revolving around Apple’s next generation smartphone; longer and larger form factor, smaller dock connector, wider screen, and two-tone metallic black color.
