Photo of Apple iPhone 5 mock-up is leaked, screen is now edge-to-edge
A rear camera part allegedly belonging to the Apple iPhone 5 was discovered, according to Apple.pro. Unlike the part of the camera that contains the lens on the iPhone 4, the discovered part did not contain a flash to the right of the lens. That would mean that the rear camera on the new model will be further away from the lens, and seems to confirm pictures released earlier Saturday of what is being claimed to be a case for the new Apple iPhone 5 that depicts a mock-up of the new updated design of the handset.

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.

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.

This has gotta be fake cause that iphone is FUGLYYYYYYYYY! When is Apple going to learn that 16:9 screen aspect is suited for landscape video playback? Enough with the boxy looking screens!

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.

You are right I have said the same thing they at least need to give at little edge so you won't be just touching the edge.

There is no way Apple would release something this messed up looking. Love or hate the iPhone, they have always been one of the better looking phones. Looks more like a knock off!

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.

Wow this is so stupid, someone goes on photoshop who has no life and creates their iPhone and everyone thinks this is the 5. So annoying for the sales people who have to hear annoying people asking when the phones coming out.

FAKE...HAHAHA THERE'S NO IPHONE 5 COMING... GET IT... IT'S ''IPHONE 4S''... FROM SOME SITES IT'S DEFINITELY TRUE... MEANS "SPEED"...
