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.
