Fully assembled iPhone 5 front leaks in high-res photos and video, A6 chip shown too

0. phoneArena 30 Aug 2012, 09:17 posted on

Now we have good quality photos of the assembled front, complete with the home key underneath the larger display. We say larger, since the pics size the front assembly up with the iPhone 4S, and the difference is pretty obvious...

Why should I? I don't have any business with them, as I like Android.

Its almost an iPhone 4ss in all honesty. Initial sales will be large because of the crazed fans but will the general ifan base who seem to be waking up a bit buy pretty much the same phone for a third year in a row?

In some ways, Apple is damned if it changed and damend if it didn't wrt screen dimensions. The iPhone 5 now has more phone friendly 16:9 dimensions...seen on many other devices...which makes it much less distinctive. However, it really couldn't go much farther than 3.5 inches under the previous 4:3 dimension without the device becoming too cumbersome for one handed use. I wonder how this will be managed wrt fragmentation within the ecosystem, going forward.

It will still sell because it's an iPhone.

Its good to see a proper hi-res shot of the screen, the glass looks different somehow, like tapered down at the edges. Can't wait to see the proper announcement and get to see the full and final thing, with whatever surprises Apple might have left (so many leaks on this! what happened to the tight security they had?)

Well pretty much every recent leak has been right on the money as of late. And its not like they are building iPhone 5 in a secure facility. Its built by low wage labor in China. They have no incentive to keep it under wraps.

They have done pretty well in the past though. With the iP5 it seems to have been leak after leak after leak :S

Apple did they they were going to double down on security this year, didn't they? I think they are just trying to keep up the popularity, and somehow purposely leaking information

Amazing, an iphone related thread with nothing but Android haters in it. The iphone 5 will obilterate any phone in sales and that's a fact!

iFans will make it a huge success just like the 4s did when apple sold the same phone to them twice.

You may be correct that is sad - are American consumers that stupid to get suckered into buying a iphone that looks like it did in 2010.
At least Samsung, in America, has changed it up from the Captivate to the Infuse to the Skyrocket to the SGS3.
The one thing I wish Samsung would do better on is the pixel density, but maybe that is where they can save money on by offering a decent display.
