Another day, another iPhone 5 rumor. Though, as the launch of Apple’s new smartphone and its inevitable success draws near, the rumors are beginning to look more like leaks. Take, for example, the pictures leaked yesterday showing the larger display and new circuit board of the iPhone 5. The French website nowhereelse.fr leaked those pics, which show the new iPhone as clearly having an all-new aspect ratio from the iPhone 4.

Today, the same website has published new photos of a completely assembled iPhone 5 right beside an iPhone 4 for comparison. An iPhone 3G is even thrown in to show how Apple’s smartphones have evolved over the past few years:

As you can see, the iPhone 5 does indeed sport a lengthened design, though many of its other design features resemble the iPhone 4. In the pictures below, it can also be seen just how much thinner the iPhone 5 is than the iPhone 4. All of the buttons, including the ever-present iPhone home button, are seen as being in the exact places they were on the iPhone 4.

So, while the iPhone 5 might not look as revolutionary as the iPhone 4 did at its launch, it does represent a steady iteration on Apple’s designs and will be a slick addition to the iPhone family.

    If they have the new iphone, why would they not show a picture of it powered on?

      Assembled may only refer to complete parts. No mention of working internals on this post. In fact, I am yet to see any leaked image showing one powered on.

      One guy does turn it on, it’ just has the Connect to iTunes logo, and he doesn’t have a cord with the new docking port end.

    I think they came out with the best that an iPhone could do with 3GS & the rest have only Diffrent looks , if they could do any better so as other mobils

    • Chris

      Right, because the 3GS’s front-facing camera, retina display, and faster processor capped all technological advances.

  • Chris

    Ok. So I see why Apple is desperately needing to sue Samsung down.

    Honestly…. I feel disappointed. I currently have iPhone 4 and kinda bored with it. If that leaked design turns out to be the real one I’ll probably stick to my old phone or get something else instead.

    Why is everyone so concerned with what it looks like!? All smart phones are rectangles with a screen and a couple buttons people…it’s what’s inside that counts. Smarten up. If the PlayStation 4 looks too much like the PS3 would you freak out and threaten to not buy it? No.
