New photos show leaked iPhone 5 parts fully assembled
This is the sort of leak that we can get behind. It isn't a leak claiming to be the iPhone 5 itself, or a fake mockup posing as the real thing. This is just the leaked parts believed to be in the iPhone 5 fully assembled into a possible design of what the iPhone 5 may look like when it is released in a couple months. 

The images come from iLab, which took the various leaked parts - volume keys, home button, faceplate, casing, etc - and assembled it all into what could be the body of a black iPhone 5. Unlike some previous leaks, the metal back on this build is the same color as the metal around the edges for a more seamless design. Still, it looks like an iPhone, and isn't a huge departure from what we've seen the last couple times out. 

Of course, if we assume that Tim Cook is holding to some of Steve Jobs' tendencies, this could just be one of a few different possible designs for the next iPhone. That possibility seems to be less and less likely as each leak does show a very similar design.

Holly Christ just look at that design lolzz...Apple is running out of ideas. I am more than sure that Apple's sales for iPhone 5 would be drastically low.
Same s**tty design with the same s**tty OS and with the same fake line which they have been using from past couple of years "A device with all new 200 features".. I never found even more than 5 or 6 features lolzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

it actually looks a whole lot better with just it being slimmer and taller....that right there matters ALOT in the phone world...but for me uhh yea like you said its probably still going to have the same old boring OS which will result in a lot of people not getting it or selling it after they tried it out....

On the other hand im sooo tired of the android phones getting bigger and bigger! Hard to find a high end android phone at the 4inch or 4.3 inch level any more...which makes me consider just a bit about getting the iphone 5......at least it looks reeely good and it will FIT right in your hand..thats what would make me "consider" gettin one....but then i would have to sacrifice the android OS for a boring bland ios ....... :(

Dear Taco, you might have to open your eyes and need to come out of your dreams.
Don't you know Apple has copied that Siri concept from Android? You don't even own an Apple device dude come on

These rumor-boosting fake iphone prototypes aren't even creative. Nobody really knows what the next one will look like. Remember the iphone 5 "leaked" prototypes before the 4S came out? Apple proved a solid point: you wont know until it's released.

If I remember right most of the 200 are for Siri, still I would like to see how it stacks aganst up Goolge now for usefulness. It's still a basic smartphone.

I want a company, any with global distribution, to make a phone with the rumored specs (4" 16:9 screen, body with the two-tone paint/texture) and start selling it ASAP. It doesn't even have to be good, just out and sold worldwide before the next apple phone comes out

Yes, it's kinda beautiful, especially its back. Not much changes in the front, as with all iPhone models. It's more evolution than evolution, but i like it. Also consider it being very slim.

We'll see. Apple will have a trick up their sleeve when they announce it. Last year it was Siri. Excited to see what it will be this year.

Siri changed the game last year as every OEM is now trying to come out with a Siri competitor.

Siri was apples response to Googles Voice command tech that has been on all androids for a few years now. Google laid the first blow then delivered the knock out punch with Google Now.

Wow. I mean, I still think the whole idea of talking to your phone is gimmicky and pathetic, but Siri is in no way close to Google Now in function, ability or reality. Probably because Google has been working on for over 5 years, while Apple simply bought out app, dumbed it down, and put it on their phone as a buggy beta just so they could claim they were first.

I'm sorry, I have to disagree with you. Android developers have been dabbling with voice technology long before Siri. Vlingo existed more than a year before Siri made an appearance. Did it have the same sort-of voice assistant UI that Siri does? No, but it doesn't mean that there wasn't some voice technology that was like Siri before Siri. Even Google Voice Actions existed before Siri. The only thing that Siri "revolutionized" was the ability to hold somewhat of a conversation with the user.

Yes there were voice commands before Siri (Apple had them also). Siri revolutionized voice commands the way Apple revolutionized touch screens. We're there touch screens before the iPhone? Yes. We're they anything like what they are now? Not even close.

Vlingo actually existed on BBs before Android came out, and has been on android since 1.5

Apple didnt revolutionize anything with siri, troll. They bought an existing app from the market, removed it from the market, and then called it an exclusive feature. Siri's Evolution is that it can accept multiple commands to do the same thing, but as test after test has shown, its still extremely unreliable.
Google now not only far exceeds Siri's abilities (just like google voice always has), its much more functional, much more natural sounding, and a hell of a lot more accurate. It has also been under development for quite some time, longer than Siri has been an "apple product", and is most definitely NOT a simple clone.

Apple's revolutionary BS is nothing more than taking existing products and slightly altering them. Yes, some times it makes big waves like the original iPhone. But that is not a revolution, it is an evolution.

And according to some pictures its not an evolution as much as it is a "direct rip off of Sony designs". Had the iphone not come out first, you would be crediting sony for the same evolution. And with the light of truth, Sony should get credit for most of that evolution.

really good points that arent true. when does he ever post facts with links to back up what he says? never.

he posted something a week or two ago about the iphone out selling the razr on verizon. that was a lie. i found the article that clearly stated that the razr had out sold the iphone for verizon and posted the link and he discredited it.

i gave up my iphone because i dont want to be a typical iphone user that is blinded by the over priced apple logo on the back of the phone. its like being a hipster. you can tell who the hipsters are and who arent. iphone users would be these hipsters. being a hipster is a fad. and only that. the iphone is a fad... like the furbie or the pet rock.

Really? (before the 2007 iPhone 1)
Palm's Treo launched apps with a finger touch in 2003.
Multi-touch was invented in Canada in 1982.
Pinch to Zoom was invented by Silly Putty in the 1940s.

Many of Apple's patents are just a bunch of the same old tech, plus the words "On a Cellular Device."

So again, what did Apple do that was so revolutionary?

The trouble is, Apple now is losing the race of: First to Market.
Beat by HTC, front facing camera.
Beat by several, LED flash tech.
Beat by Microsoft, Android, Voice Recognition and Intuitiveness.
Beat my many for "Cut and Paste"
Beat by everybody, for Multitasking.
etc.

You're mixed up.Apple did not revolutionize touch screens. They took existing tech (capacitive screens), stole existing ideas (multitouch, swipe to unlock, etc...), and put it out on an existing device (smartphones).

revolutionized means they created something new that changed the space forever. Sounds ALMOST like what happened, except for apple didnt create ANYTHING new. They took a bunch of existing tech and put it together in a way that others had not yet. Thats evolution, not revolution.

Yes they did. No phone on the market had anything close to Apple's GUI. You android phones now come standard with the features Apple introduced like pinch to zoom, swipe between photos. Double tap to zoom in etc.

You guys want to swear up and down Apple has come up with nothing. Why then is Apple THE standard for smartphones.

"Revolutionized" is the wrong term. Apple revolutionized nothing. Unless you count copying and marketing.
What Apple did do with touch screens is make them commodities.

Siri I don't think changed anything. It was just an excitement builder. Never seen anybody use it. And my work place is full of iPhones. Its either txt or games.
