Video sizes up iPhone 5 parts with iPhone 4S and Galaxy S III, Apple's new USB cable surfaces
Hey! Ho! Let's go! For today's round of leaked iPhone 5 parts, we have prepared a special video edition. As they say in "From Dusk till Dawn" - "Come on in, iPhone lovers! We have white iPhone 5, we have black iPhone 5, and we have smaller iPhones!".

The alleged components for the sixth generation iPhone, about to be unveiled in three weeks or so, even get sized up with the iPhone 4S and the archenemy Samsung Galaxy S III. Actually this purported next iPhone is larger than the 4S, but when sized up with the SGSIII it cuddles tight, nestled on the giant 4.8" display of Samsung's beefy handset.

The main take, besides the larger 4" display, and the rearranged internal design to make more room for a battery to power it, is again the shrunk 8-pin dock connector, and the headphone jack, which are on one flex cable, suggesting a bottom placement for the audio jack, just like on the iPod touch

Meanwhile, the alleged USB cable that will come in the box to take a good use of that new dock connector, has also leaked, and since we have 8 contact plates there on both sides, it won't matter what side do you insert it in the iPhone connector, another time-saver. 

If we were Apple, and the influx of part leaks for our next bunker-busting gadget is legit, we'd be very annoyed at all those phone repair shops displaying them for the world to see, and ruining the element of surprise for the September 12 announcement. Still, we haven't seen a fully assembled unit so far, so that's a small consolation, that keeps the guessing game alive, and that might be the whole point.

Nah, just the people who have to change everything they own because Apple decides to use a new cable. ;D

There has been enough leaks now to safely say the new iPhone is definitely going to be an iPhone 4 yet again albeit this time with a slightly elongated screen and this different charger port. Realistically ifans should take note now and not face disappointment again at its unveiling

Let’s be honest.... iPhone isn’t the only product that makes minor changes. Please let me know the different innovative features that are in the Samsung Galaxy III that weren't in its predecessor?

Hmmm…. I can say for sure that the screen freezes less =P

I hate Apple so much! lol

This is pure arrogance on their part if you ask me.. lets switch up the connector and make consumers repurchase ALL their accessories!!!

How nice would it have been for Apple and the other manufacturers to come to a STANDARD and use that for all devices.. so I don't have to purchase some accessories to support iThings.. and other accessories to support Android.

HATE HATE HATE! :P

Pretty sure gonna be at least a 4" screen and kinda narrow display, indeed, but Im not impress, if that info is true.
Looks small obviously compare with SGSIII, IMO.
