Kudos goes to MacRumors on this one. Last month we were festooned with fanciful fabrications of supposed iPhone 5 paraphernalia. Cases, and leaked images were floating around everywhere, images of which decorated most tech blogs. One or two of these really caught our fancy. Firstly there was a detailed case schematic, then some actual cases showing up in China, and elsewhere.
Based on these designs, and the details found in the leaks, MacRumors has created the following renderings of what the iPhone 5 could potentially look like. (Click the gallery below to view collection.)
The renderings, if accurate, would point towards a device with a larger screen (either 3.7″ or 4″), MacRumors aren’t sure either. The handset appears to taper from top to bottom, with both ends thinner than the current iPhone 4. However, there is some extra width to make up for the larger screen. As you can tell, the home key has been redesigned. I haven’t decided if it’s better or worse yet.
What do you guys think? Personally, I think it’s one of the best looking renders so far. Good job MacRumors.
