One of the latest pre launch iPhone 5 examples has hit YouTube within the last 24 hours, which compares the next iPhone against previous generations including the 4S, 3GS, and also a look at the iPhone 5 front panel compared to the design of Samsung’s Galaxy S3. You can see the video below this article and the creators have managed to get hands-on with not only the white and black glass panels, but also the flex cable assembly for the 8-pin dock connector.
Apple’s iPhone 5 for simplicity — nobody knows what the new iPhone will be called other than Apple, although throughout this article we’ll call the next generation “iPhone 5” for simplicity. The video runs for just over three and half minutes, which shows the major changes like the screen size and home button size, but there are some clear minor changes as well like the camera and proximity senor location.
This means the iPhone 5 senor is next to the speaker and the camera is above the speaker, which basically means Apple has switched the positions. It good seeing the iPhone 5 front panel being put on top of the 4S, and this gives us a clear look at the size difference. The image below is a screenshot from the video and gives you a quick look at the 6th generation iPhone next to its counterparts.
Too many sources point to the same iPhone 5 design — When multiple credible websites state they have an insider source and show the same iPhone 5 design, then it either means this is what we should expect for the next iPhone or these blogs are just copying each other with made up rumors. It’s our opinion that the final iPhone 5 design is pretty much confirmed from the numerous leaks, although there’s a lot more to find out about the exact hardware. If you want to see a collection of leaked pictures that put the iPhone 5 next to the iPhone 4S, then see this article on iPhone Rumors.
What’s left to find out about iPhone 5 from Apple’s September 12 event? Official confirmation should always be sort after, but if we’re to believe most of the repetitive leaks then what do we still need to find out about the iPhone 5? The video below also shows different new iPhone flex cable compared to the 4S, and what elements have moved and changed. This is one of the most detailed leaks so far, and we’ll find out if these details are real on the release date that has been pinned down by Verizon’s vacation ban.
