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

Fully assembled iPhone 5 front leaks in high-res photos and video, A6 chip shown too
We've had iPhone 5 leaks so far, but they were either of individual components around the front panel, motherboard and so on, or too blurry and low quality to tell much of how the next iPhone will look like in the front.

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.

There are also pics of the motherboard with the EMI shield on and off, and the chipset on one pf the photos has a blurry A6 stamped on it, so that's that, it it's real - silicon tailored for the sixth generation iPhone. The new USB cable is also here in its full glory, proving once again the 8-pin dock connector at the bottom of the iPhone 5, and eventually the iPad mini. It is double-sided, so it will work no matter how you plug it into the iPhone.

It makes me cry that having an a6 processor(quad core, as rumored and expected) is not necessary on a device that has a really light OS. I mean, come on. what's the use of having a quad core processor when the iOS slightly change from its original version and can't even support a live wallpaper.

Somehow this design looks VERY dated! It looks like something the iPhone 4S should have been.

Well, apparently Apple thinks they should. Why they sued Samsung. Even though NO ONE EVER bought a Samsung because they thought it looked like an iPhone! NO ONE!

What are you trying to say about the SIII?

16. wassup

Posts: 565; Member since: Jun 23, 2011

Nothing, I even own one, but I'm saying that the S3 looks better than this monstrosity

Yes it does look ugly. It's like taking a fat person & stretching them out. The new iPhone 5 makes the iPhone 4 & 4S look chunky/fat. The iPhone 5 looks like a long brownie piece. lol That "ICONIC" look is getting very, very tired.

Lol of all things to associate it with.. it had to be a "long brownie piece" when I think of a long brownie piece.. I do think of something I tend to associate iPhones with, just sayin :)

You want to know why I said that? Yesterday at my Mother’s house I purposely cut a long brownie piece so my 2 boys & I could share it. Talk about coincidence! It literally looks like the piece I cut last night! lol +1

so now that it is actually getting a bigger screen, the complaint is that it won't "look good"? seriously? u do realize it looks that way because of the giant screen you all were demanding right?

53. wassup

But Lucas, bigger screen has been done beautifully before, the One X , the S3, the Razr, the LG L7, Optimus G. This just looks ugly, apple doesn't want to spend on design IMO

Really thank you for the lesson. Lucas777 How did you know that? lol

I just think that if they tried any other size of screen they would get sued.. so they made an enlongated brownie style and just said its so the "user" can use it with one hand still.. I have a rezound I still use mine one handed no prob.. even messed with the s3.. my mitts fit it perfect. no point in getting a tv remove for a phone.

I personally don't like the way it looks... The 4/4S looks better imo.

Yea me too. I think it looks like a remote, long & skinny. It needs to be a bit wider.

Its comments like this that will get you hated on this site. Stop worshipping Apple if you're not getting a single cent from them you troll.

I know there are much more Android fans than iOS fans. Does not stop me from telling everyone my opinion. To be honest, my goal is to show how stupid aggression is and I'm happy that even some Android fans understand me.

Tell that to Apple, taco and that annoying troll mkz or whatever his name is.
