Well folks, the past few weeks have been full of iPhone 5 rumors, with reported NFC capability and a ridiculously fast A6 processor among some of the mentioned features for the new iPhone. We’ve even heard that the iPhone 5 will be coming out in June to coincide with Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC). But what we haven’t heard much about lately is the actual look of the iPhone 5. That is, until this week. You see, even though the WWDC is still four months away, iPhone 5 Latest has received images that may very well show the iPhone 5. It appears that the iPhone images have leaked.
First Look at the iPhone 5?
This week we received an email from an Faiz Aly of A.One, a team that focuses on researching and finding leaks, as well as other information, concerning upcoming Apple products. Faiz Aly and A.One were kind enough to provide us with two images that they believe were leaked from Apple’s WWDC 2012 keynote presentation.
Of course, we cannot say for sure that this is what the iPhone 5 will look like as many iPhone images have leaked in the past that ultimately didn’t pan out. However, our source has gotten it right before and already has information on the upcoming iPad 3, which will likely be released in March. So we’re inclined to believe that the iPhone 5 images have leaked and that the iPhone 5 might just look like the iPhone seen in these images:

New to the iPhone 5
Let’s start with the obvious: based on these pictures, it appears that the iPhone 5 will, in fact, come with 4G. This has been rumored for many months and was even previously reported on iPhone 5 Latest. What’s not obvious, however, is whether this will be plain 4G or 4G LTE–and, yes, there is a difference between the two. The difference between the two is simple: 4G LTE is considerably faster than 4G (we’re talking 12mbps download rate versus 5-6mbps download rate).
Perhaps even more noticeable than the beautiful 4G icon in the iPhone 5’s taskbar is the size of the device. In looking at the first picture, the bigger size isn’t that noticeable; however, when you see picture 2, it’s obvious that the iPhone 5 is bigger than the previous iPhone models. How much bigger? We don’t know yet, but judging by the pictures, we’re betting that the iPhone 5 is probably sporting at least a 3.7 to 4.3″ display.
Beyond these two big differences, we can also see that the receiver on the iPhone 5 is slightly bigger than it was on other iPhones. This is likely due to the bigger overall size of the device. It also appears that the front-facing camera is slightly bigger. Could this mean a better front-camera for the iPhone 5? We don’t know yet, but it is possible.
What’s the Same
Judging by these pictures, the iPhone 5 will have a slightly curvier design than the flat, rectangular shaped iPhone 4 and 4S. However, overall, it seems like the button design of the device is similar to the 4 and 4S. The home button, front camera, receiver, volume, lock, and silencer buttons all appear to be in the same place as previous models.
It also looks like the iPhone 5 will be running the same iOS5 software as the 4S. We don’t have images of the back of the iPhone 5 yet, but we’re guessing the camera will also be in the same position as previous models and will possibly be either the same 8MP camera as found in the 4S or perhaps a 10MP or higher one.
