Part photos that surfaced online early this morning may have revealed that the 'iPhone 5' will have NFC, reports Macotakara.

The photos were at first notable because they showed an assembled front panel; however, Macotakara has spotted what they believe to be a NFC sensor.

I found a part which is considered as NFC sensor is assembled on this LCD part photo. Considering past leaked new iPhone photos which are reported by iLab Factory or other reporters, a hole is pitted beside iSight camera and new expanded flex-cable, which are connected volume button, reaches where this hole places. This meant some sensor should be assembled on side of iSight camera, and it was cleared now. NFC sensor is it.

Take a look at the possible sensor highlighted in the photo below...

What do you mean by an "NFC sensor"? Near Field Communication do not need any hole for such a "sensor", but some RF-transparent area, like there are two on the back of the expected case. A sensor behind a hole could be anything, but there's no need of any hole for an NFC antenna...

I'm sure there are several 'hidden' features to the iPhone 5 like this that will be announced when it's released. I was also wondering whether they'll 'waterproof' the new iPhone like people have talked about. That would be a significant advancement, but probably depends upon the amount of material the manufacturer could supply. And Kingz, this is Confirmation of earlier reports, not merely repeating rumors.
