The iPhone 5 might look like this when held

0. phoneArena 08 Aug 2012, 09:43 posted on

Chances are that the iPhone 5 will be taller than the current model, but how exactly will it look like when you're holding it? Well, here are several renders of the next iPhone that can answer that question with decent accuracy, as long as the device's rumored design and dimensions turn out to be true...

I find it mildly amusing that every time I see a comment that is "hidden because of it's low rating" it is because taco has joined the conversation....

Android is more advanced in what? Task killing apps and crash logs?

I think it looks odd with the screen elongated like that. It's bigger thats good but bigger android phones feel good too. thats just my opinion.

Well of course they're fakes, they are renders just to show you what it could potentially look like.

I hope it looks uglier than this, has barely bumped up specs but represented as so much better and sells a lot. This way we can really see if the lovers stick with it or switch. Nothing like testing love when ugliness is presented in front of them.

I think the black one looks pretty cool. If they would just shrink the bezel on the top and bottom that would be perfect. Move the front facing camera to the side and bring the top down. Not sure if it's enough to break me from my G-Nex though.

Doesn't the IOS 6 have already held the iTunes and App store together? Why does the pictures got it separate?

Aston Martin should sue Apple for adopting the same design strategy.
The same design over and over again HaHa!
However,more elegant the new design.

I like it. I was hoping apple would somehow make this next one a little thinner. I like the camera being place in the middle...way better desighn.and bigger screen! I can't complain

How is the design better if it is the exact same design? Just curious.

I was refering to the camera placement. It's a better look for the design. Why are you striking up an argument over this? Get androids d**k out your mouth.

ok, so this makes the rumors of it being longer more acceptable looking at how it will possibly be held.

thanks for posting these PA...

actually increased my interest in buying it a little...

not bad. not bad at all...

After hearing the rumours a few months ago that it will be stretched to fit in the screen and i thought it was pretty horrible

After seeing this mock-up ... i still stand with my statement ..... horrible

I also think these pictures are fake. If you compare the black model with the white one, you'll see that the white model is taller than the black. ;) Can you explain this? :)

Same as iphone 4 just bigger screen and same software its boring. But apple Dont care because they know people are still going to buy it. I dont see how apple fans think this is revolutionary remember guys the next big thing is already here!

Can't really tell much, a person's hand is too varied. After Apple showed the images of the Droid X being death gripped, it was obvious the proportions don't give you a clear indication of the size of the phone.

Make an image of the new prototype and hold it next to the iPhone4S so we can clearly see what all the buzz is about.

I LOVE the black two-tone design. That is a gorgeous phone!

If this is how the new iphone looks, then I'm done. I have a 3gs because I could not bring myself to buy the 4. This would really suck. OAN: this could just be a marketing strategy that will create hype and drama over the design so that when it is finally unveiled everyone(even the haters) will be surprised by what apple does. Just a little food for thought.
