New set of cases for iPhone 5 show possible redesign

New set of cases for iPhone 5 show possible redesign
Yet another set of photos of alleged cases for the Apple iPhone 5 has appeared that shows a possible redesign that includes rounded edges and new placement for the device’s mute switch.

There are three cases that were posted on an online retail site, so the legitimacy of these may be in question. However there have been other past leaks that show a similar redesign which makes these a little more believable.

The cases themselves look bigger than the current ones offered for the iPhone 4. They show rounded edges as opposed to the squared design of Apple’s current flagship smartphone. The volume buttons look to be in the same spot as every previous iPhone model but the mute switch is shown on the opposite side.

The retail site has a dummy iPhone in the images of the cases. However, when shown from the back the dummy device has no flash next to the camera. The opening on the case itself looks big enough to accommodate a flash though.

Out of all the cases that have leaked claiming to be for the next-gen iPhone, one of them just has to be right eventually, right?

Honestly, iPhone rumors right now aren't worth reading especially when the Oct 4th event is just a week away.

FYI the October 4th event is a rumor. Apple has not officially announced anything.

I was thinking the same thing. I doubt Apple will release an iPod touch phone.

Let's not pretend that you and a horde of other Android enthusiast don't post on almost every iphone/Apple article. Also there are Iphone fans who post on almost every Android article. So let's not play the I only posted this because you posted on X Android Article. Also, I like both so I can do whatever I want. ; )

I don't get it do you have to pick one or the other or something. I like android and apple. Don't care which one comes out with something better. All I now is I probably will end up with bothe kinds and switching between the two throughout the year. I like to think I am an old school phone geek that loves new tech especially phone and computers. Oh and cars. I am sure there is more

For me it is simple. If the new Iphone is a redesign I will get it. If not, there are too many great alternatives coming out to ignore. Between the Vigor(Also horribly named the Rezound) and the Droid Prime/Nexus Prime alone. I like the Iphone, but I'm also a fan of companies atleast trying to make the consumer happy.
