Pictures allegedly show internal components of the Apple iPhone 5
Leaked pictures from the web sites of different Chinese parts suppliers allegedly show some internal parts belonging to the Apple iPhone 5. These type of leaks usually start occurring as we get closer to the introduction of a new iPhone. The pictures found on the web sites for TVC-Mall and Truesupplier include an OEM camera lens replacement module and an OEM earphone jack.

The earphone jack is seen in both black and white indicating that the next-gen iPhone will be available in both colors. And if you're wondering what they creepy looking part is, the one that resembles a robotic monster with one eye and a clawed foot, that is supposed to be the phone's proximity light sensor flex cable pointing to a design change in the upcoming model according to Kyle Wiens of iFixit. He notes that this version of the proximity light sensor flex cable for the new iPhone 5 parts doesn’t have a microphone, while the iPhone 4 model of the part has the power button, noise canceling mic and proximity/ambient light sensors on the part.

If you're wondering what might be new in the Apple iPhone 5, we can start with the processor, expected to be an A5 dual-core chip and a perhaps a larger 4 inch screen that runs from edge to edge. A bump up to an 8MP camera is also expected. As we reported, the latest speculation is that the Apple iPhone 5 will be introduced next month.

I wonder if they will be able to make it thinner then the galaxy s2. That would actually make it look very appealing, especially if they go back to a metal back. Iphones are great looking phones, to bad you cant run android on them it would be perfect then.

Or you can just buy the Samsung Galaxy SII if you want Android that bad.

Actually, Android is ported over to the iPhone, but who in their right mind would run Android on their iPhones when they already have iOS on their iPhones?!

Those parts have been photoshopped to make them look like the internal parts of the Galaxy S II.

I think that 8,5 mm thickness of the SGS2 is already a little too thin. If the Iphone 5 would be thinner, than I say it will become a disadvantage.

I'm against anorexia too but iPhone 4 is really not that thin in my opinion.

I don't think so either that's why I don't want apple to make it thinner because then they might just be pushing it.

Do you think that Apple will End of Life the iPhone 3GS when the iPhone 5 hits?

More likely yes, Apple will even discontinue it even quicker if the Dev Team can downgrade the Baseband for unlock.

Anyone that still has an old iphone should dump it before the next one arrives. You may lose more money on it if you do not. newboy17 its up to you I owned an iphone 3g for 2 1/2 years. Back then only other real choice was blackberry (not for me). Android was in its infancy then. I now own a Nexus S android phone. I enjoy it more than my iPhone because you can do more with it and you have more choices on hardware. I would suggest trying to mess with both from a friend or relatives and try to use it for a day and see what you think.

hey anyone notice that the 3.5 mm jack is colored!!!!!!! (black or white) that means the iphone 5 won't have a metal frame!!!!! and it also means that it won't be curved on the sides since the 3.5 mm jack is not curved at all!!!
