Photo of Apple iPhone 5 mock-up is leaked, screen is now edge-to-edge
posted by Alan F. / May 14, 2011, 7:51 PM
According to the pictures, the screen of the upcoming iPhone 5 has an edge-to edge screen while the flash has been moved to the upper right corner, away from the lens. International trading site Alibaba.com, the source of some accurate leaks regarding Apple products in the past, has a listing for a "Newest design crystal case for Apple iPhone 5g(sic)" from Guangdong, China-based Kulcase.
Before Apple introduced the iPad 2, cases were leaked as far back as December that accurately matched the specifications of the tablet. Case manufacturers also had listings for the Verizon branded Apple iPhone 4 days before the device was introduced. Case manufacturers obviously need to know the size and specs of a device before mass producing their wares and are a good source of leaks.

I don't like the edge to edge screen of this, and the camera placement is just funky, definitely not an improvement of the 4.

didnt they already debunk this as saying the iphone 5 WONT have the edge to edge screen and it will be in the iphone 6?? remember that whole apple/samsung lawsuit like 3 weeks ago where they were saying thats what this was about? I wouldnt put any stock in this rumor.

Yep, those ain't gonna break at all. If this is Apple's real final design I do have to applaud them for doing something a little more bold. But I still think the Targa (Bionic?) is sexier.

The iphone5 will not have an edge to edge screen. Your hand would automatically be touching and selecting stuff while just holding it. that sometimes happens to me and I have the galaxy s with plenty of bezel. Plus it'd be fragile as hell.

I don't think that this is real. in the colors it has "bler" (I would assume that is supposed to be blue), "green, yellow, red, black," and "whire" (I would also assume that is supposed to be white). Also, on one of the pics it says, "Newest design crystal case for apple iPhone 5g", which I would take as those are just mock-up of possible cases coming out.
