We have an update on the iPhone 5 release to share with you now, and it’s pretty significant as some new rumored pictures of the device have showed up online, and it may give us another look at how the final design will end up if it releases towards the end of this year.
Interestingly, these new pictures seem to look identical to the ‘mystery’ White iPhone 4 device which we told you about here and was running an unreleased version of iOS 4. These new pictures have been obtained by Chinese website M.I.C Gadget and there are a number of design changes that you’ll want to know about.
Firstly, it looks as if the touchscreen will be slightly larger than the one seen on the current iPhone 4, although it doesn’t look like a 4-inch size and it definitely isn’t edge to edge. The front of the alleged iPhone 5 also sports a new proximity sensor above the speaker, while BGR is reporting that the back of the device will be rounded again, like the iPhone 3GS and older models.
Based on these pictures though, would you welcome this design for the iPhone 5, or would it be a total disappointment to those expecting a completely revamped design? Don’t forget, these are just rumored pictures until Apple state otherwise. We’ll update you when we have more details, or if these images are confirmed with fresh information.
