The imminent iPhone 5 release date brings a variety of rumors. New leaked images of the anticipated iPhone 5 smartphone have interested many parties. These photos supposedly show the appearance of Apple’s upcoming high-end phone. According to various reports, the production of the iPhone 5 by the contract manufacturer Pegatron has already started. The advent of the new images are allegedly from a Chinese factory worker.
The pictures show a prototype well-equipped with a 4-inch 16:9 display, a camera key and the new 19 pin dock. Additionally, a 3.5 mm jack is located on the bottom. The story about the new photos certainly might remind one of the anecdote a few years ago in a bar by an Apple employee. It has became to be known as “the forgotten iPhone 4 prototype.”
Since it is currently, only a rumor, the authenticity of the new images can’t be verified. It would probably be wise to take these photos with a grain of salt. We will only find out when Apple introduces its new iPhone 5 model, officially, which is expected in September or October.
Futhermore, these photos should be treated with great skepticism, because of the massive security arrangements in the Foxconn factory. It is actually rather unlikely that the current iPhone 5 would fall into unauthorized hands. So it could well be that this is merely an advertisement of an iPhone 5 cover manufacturer.
