The iPhone 5 rumors are really starting to heat up. Yesterday we had some analyst guy essentially reiterating the notion that the iPhone 5 will stretch to around 4in, complete with some nice diagrams and that.
Now we’ve got more juicy iPhone 5 info, courtesy of a video appearing to contain the back plate.
The iPhone 5 back plate is the same width as the iPhone 4S, but taller and slimmer, which is pretty much what we’ve been hearing for the past few weeks. We’re told to expect a 4in iPhone 5 with 16:9 aspect ratio.
Interestingly, the headphone jack on the iPhone 5 appears to be on the bottom of the device. Is that a good thing? The jury’s out...
There’s also – shock horror – a smaller dock connector. Finally! Death to the giant beast. As a result, there’s now more real estate on the bottom for meaty-looking speakers.
And finally, the SIM card tray is a different size. Woop.
And there you have it; the iPhone 5’s back plate. Salt? Well, if it’s a fake, it certainly gets an A for effort.
