iLab has managed to get a set of high resolution photos of the purported, pre-production, next-generation iPhone 5 repair parts supporting all the recent rumors about upcoming phone. The parts includes – backplate, panel frame, Home button flex cable, Flex sensor cable, Power Flex cable, Home button, Volume buttons, digitizer, and more.
The parts have striking resemblance with the schematic photo and hands-on video hinting a taller 4-inch iPhone in production. The new iPhone 5 parts show a different arrangement; if you compare the iPhone 5 frame with other its predecessor.
The leaked parts shows the bigger screen, different internals (such as a new flex cable holding the Home button in place), and the camera modules (front and rear). The camera module cutout looks to be larger, there is an enhanced version of speaker and microphone configuration at the bottom, new smaller dock connector (instead of 30-pin Dock Connector, 16-pin connector could be introduced). Another notable design change in the new iPhone front panel shows the FaceTime camera has been moved to a centered position above the earpiece speaker (it is currently to left of the earpiece in iPhone 4S and iPhone 4).
But the really interesting part here is the two-tone design, which bears a resemblance to the original iPhone. Those hoping for an all-new Liquidmetal design may be disappointed with the iPhone 5′s looks.
The iPhone 5 is widely expected to debut in the fall, most likely in September or October and fresh rumors are likely to increase over the next few weeks. Apple manufacturers would need to be already working on the device for it to make such a debut.
