Shenzhen based iPhone parts supplier tvc-mall.com has received a fresh inventory of iPhone 5 TPU Gel cases that offers some valuable clues about its design specifications. This iPhone 5 physical case aligns with the case drawings leaked from a Chinese case manufacturer and a hands-on video leaked exclusively by us – thinner and longer with smaller dock connector.
The next generation iPhone will have the same width as the current 4 and 4S models, but will be taller in size – around 4-inches diagonally. The upcoming iPhone will be much thinner. The exact dimensions are unknown, however. The image clearly shows a small cut-out area mashing with earlier claims that the sixth generation iPhone will have smaller dock connector. The listing has been added with a notice saying:
As iPhone 5 has not been unveiled, we can’t guarantee this product can be used in iPhone 5. If you have any questions, please contact our friendly customer service representatives.
Lending a little bit of credence to this particular iPhone 5 case is the fact that the manufacturers sometimes receive final design schematics in advance of a new product launch from unofficial sources within Apple supply chain. These resellers do so just to make quick profit by making them available from day one. Earlier this year at least few companies produced iPad 2 cases and correctly gave us its shape and profile, just before the tablet became available.
