New video with an eventual iPhone 5 part emerges, this time of the backplate
Another day, another supposedly iPhone 5 part making the YouTube rounds, this time of the back panel. At least that's something new, we used to be treated only by front panels so far.

Fake or not, at least it adds a bit of height when compared with an iPhone 4S, showcasing what an eventual 4" iPhone could look like if all rumors that point towards a larger display turn out to be true.

The narrator says the back is mostly metal, and the SIM card place is smaller than usual, indicating a possible design around Apple's nano-SIM standard that recently got approved by ETSI. A unibody shell is hinted, with only the front being glass, and the whole part seems to be even thinner than the iPhone 4S, jibing with the 7.9mm thickness that's been bandied about recently, plus the rumored smaller dock connector is in place as well.
