High Resolution Photos of the Front and Back of the New iPhone? [Images]

Posted May 29, 2012 at 4:02pm by iClarified
High resolution photos have surfaced online claiming to show both the front and back of the next generation iPhone, reports 9to5Mac.

The long rumored smaller dock connector is present, the earphone jack has been moved to the bottom corner of the device (the first time Apple has done this on one of their smartphones), the speaker grills have been redesigned, and there is a new opening between the camera lens and the LED flash. We're not sure what this opening is, but it is possible that Apple is moving the second microphone (Apple started shipping two microphones with the iPhone 4) to the back for improved video recording.

According to the supplier that obtained these parts, the new device will be the same width but slightly longer. A front glass part obtained by the supplier has room for a taller display that keeps the same width. The glass also shows that the FaceTime camera has moved to above the earpiece.

yeah its fake how would you charge it... look at the bottom there is no USB port to connect the USB to charge the phone

Also, some questions to be thinking about. If apple really want to change the size of the connector/charging port, why didn't they do so on the New iPad that just got released, n also the iPad 2,4. Both r 2012 products. Doing that would allow users to have accessories ready for d iPhone release. Simply doesnt make sense to me. Unless apple just like to do things that doesn't make any sense.

I doubt whether these are actually pictures of the next iPhone. Probably some prototype designs that were being tested, if not an outright hoax. They probably try all kinds of designs before settling on the final version.

Brilliant. Apple wishes they were as smart as you .

I've been to a manufacturing plant in the US. Even though the plant is not producing anything of high secret, but they required their employees to come in n work with empty pockets. No cell phone or camera, n wen they leave their pocket gets checked. This make sure that they can't take photos of d products n they can't bring anything home. So how can a product of high secret like an iPhone gets leaked out of a manufacturing plant like 5 months before it is rumored to be released? Also, I don't think apple would just increas d length n not the width cus that will be so hard to fit in a pocket n length alone doesn't help with visibility issue that d iPhone is being criticized of being too small.

It looks fake to me, the Apple logo and iPhone on the back can barely be seen or read. Im checking pics of all the previous iPhones and apple never does this shit. Apple make the logo and the word iPhone clear and non transparent like how it is above.

A smaller dock? I have 4 different stereos with iPod docks...and several different charging/sync cables. If Apple thinks I am going to buy new stereos and cables -- they'd better think again. Sorry, I won't buy the new iPhone if they change the dock size. Tired of spending $$ on accessories and adapters. And two-tone = #Fail

Can't afford the higher class market? See ya ;)

Clearly it's NOT two-tone. first pic shows one black and one white rear housing, while the next pic does show a black front and a white back the third picture shows you a white front. ;) We all happy? cool.

If they do change the dock connector they will probably make an adaptor for all existing accessories, stereos, etc.

Same boring design.
zwabbit - May 29, 2012 at 5:47pm
Agree with you.

Interesting.. new look to the speaker and mic and the headphone jack at the bottom is a mistake, I hate listening to music on my iPod because the jack is on the bottom so thumbs down to that change. Though the iPhone 4 design is a timeless design I think they hold have made more change, I don't know if this is the Steve Jobs phone they were saying he was working on but it doesn't seem like it; unless there's something dramatic/different with the OS I don't think this is the phone he was working on. I think they're trying to milk it (the iPhone SJ was last working on that is).

I definitely prefer the headphone jack at the bottom. That way I don't have to change which way up I put e phone in my pocket when I'm listening to music. Overall I like this design. The iPhone 4/4s is still the smartest phone on the market a tiny tweak like this to get a little bit of extra screen space seems about perfect.

"there is a new opening between the camera lens and the LED flash" -- that's for the second microphone, it has been moved from the upside of the device (near the original headphones jack) to the back of the device near the camera lens. This way the new iPhone cases won't need a second opening near the power button.

That wouldn't make much sense having a noise canceling mic on the back... Also for FaceTime calls the top mic is used... Don't think audio quality would be too good with a mic on the back?
