Assembled new iPhone 5 leaks, claiming it's the real deal

0. phoneArena posted on 13 Jun 2012, 02:25

We've seen purported schematics, front and back panels of the next iPhone, but we haven't seen the thing assembled so far, and today's leak filled that inexcusable omittance. The assembled iPhone back looks very much stuffed in that unibody backplate that leaked last week with the funky speaker grills, seems to be machined pretty well for a fake, despite the scuffs and scratches, and the source says there aren't traces of Photoshop wizardry, but we won't know until we see the real thing...

maybe because an apple employee "rebelled" and wanted to "use it" against apple. lol.

maybe they wanted the hype the Galaxy S III got, since a lot was disappointed with the 4S.

Yes, judging by how the 4s has already sold more than the entire Galaxy line, it seems many were disappointed. If you don't think there is more hype for the iPhone than any other phone, then you have been partaking in some illegal substances.

Any one else notice that the headphone jack is now at the bottom?

Putting the charger and headphone jack on the same side of the phone, the bottom in this case, is the best design. It allows you to mount your phone ways that you normally couldn't and it allows you to stick it in things like cupholders and stuff in your car or other places.

Unless you have a charging dock.. I suppose future docks will make provision for this. Maybe you could even charge the phone via the headphone jack?

It appears to me that Apple is trying to make it so that when you plug your phone into a dock, you would also be connecting the headphone input. This would mean that the dock itself would have a headphone jack, so you would connect whatever audio device you are using to your dock instead of to the phone directly.

Except for the fact that the iPod dock port can, and often is, already be used to transmit audio as a line-out. This serves primarily to audio purists who want to bypass the player's internal amplifier when plugging into an external amp or home receiver.

Putting the headphone-out and the line-out next to each other doesn't really have any purpose in that regard.

Whoa. This guy brings an elegance to fanboy-ism. I applaud you sir. Perhaps a bit too gaudy though, try to tone that down a bit

Yeah well i'd rather have a phone that i don't have to put in case to keep it looking good. I mean how many iPhones do you see covered in a big bulky cases, I mean if I want something that's supposed to be so ascetically beautiful and then put some case on it? It just seems like your taking away from what the phone makers want to show off in design. With the iPhone it's to easily broken out off a case. A lumia 800 with no case and gorilla glass screen wins over the fragile iPhone anyway, at least in my book...

I have to say, it's sexy.

Too bad it will be overpriced and will be running iOS 6 for a year... and hardware will be very mediocre.

Sexy? It looks exactly the same as the iPhone 4/4s with a bigger screen.

Which is, almost unarguably by overwhelming consensus, a sexy phone. This is coming from a MAXX user who utterly detests iOS. The unibody all-black-everything design is sure to go over well.

Aesthetically, it's a definite thumbs up.

Loving the design of this. Too bad it'll be way too overpriced to buy for my Straight Talk plan. Guess I'll have to stick with my One X.

Should make the edges on the back a little bit curved. Would improve comfortability.
