iPhone 5 parts leaked

Comparing several sources around the net it seems to be fairly consistent that these might be in fact next generation iPhone 5 parts.

Here are some of the obvious things to note:

  • The frame is a different form factor.
  • The screen size is definitely larger.
  • The dock connector is much smaller.
  • The headphone jack is positioned at the bottom instead of the top.
  • The volume button, power button, and silent switch are no longer just silver in color like the iPhone 4/4s.

Below are several photos of what looks to be iPhone 5 replacement parts. Time will tell if these are real or not. I guess we’ll all find out shortly at the likely September 12th announcement of the iPhone 5.

The new iPhone will likely have :

  • 4-inch Retina display
  • an A5X variant chip
  • 1GB RAM
  • iOS 6
  • 4G LTE technology
  • near field communication (NFC) technology
  • improved Siri
  • aluminum unibody
  • an 8+ megapixel rear camera
  • a 2 megapixel front-facing camera
  • much-improved battery life.
