iPhone 5 front panel alters FaceTime

After mounting evidence has seemingly put a Mini iPad on schedule for a release before the end of the year, it looks like Apple can no longer keep their prized iPhone 5 smartphone a secret either.

New information on the device seems to be appearing every day and after recently informing you about the next iPhone going into production, we can tell you that yet more alleged components have been leaked. So far we have seen countless pictures of the rumored back casing of the device suggesting that aluminum materials will be used.

Now though, a new picture of the alleged front casing for the iPhone 5 has appeared and it again backs up previous rumors suggesting that Apple has opted to move the Facetime camera position to the center of the device, rather than the left side where it is featured on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.

The picture has been obtained by, the same Taiwanese site that you may be familiar with for leaking other Apple components in the past. Aside from the new position for the Facetime camera, we also see the larger display screen compared with the current size and it is clear that the new model definitely has a bigger height, whilst maintaining the same width as the iPhone 4/4S.

Other than that, there doesn’t appear to be any other major changes to the front panel for the iPhone 5. Many were hoping to see an edge-to-edge display for the next-generation iPhone, but we have a feeling that many consumers will still be happy with the new and improved taller display.

How many more component leaks are we going to see before Apple has to come out and announce the device officially? If the iPhone 5 takes preference for you over the likes of the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2, let us know your impressions of the device so far, based on all of the rumored specs and design information.
