If it was possible to build a device out of pictures, this latest “leak” would just about put the finishing touches on an iPhone 5. We’ve seen photo after photo showing everything from the unibody design, to the motherboard, to the longer front panel. Now we’ve got images that allegedly depict the battery that will be powering the iPhone 5.
The images show a battery with an output of 5.45 watt-hours at 3.8 volts that is supposedly a perfect fit with the leaked unibody iPhone 5 back piece. What’s more, the battery in question is one half inch taller than the one tickin’ away in your iPhone 4S, which is slightly less powerful with an output 5.3 watt-hours at 3.7 volts.
These pictures are coming from the repair site iResQ, which has a fairly reliable track record, so unless Apple has one hell of a trick up its sleeve, I’d wager that these are legit. I’m not quite sure what happened to Apple’s security this year, but I’m certainly not complaining…
What do you guys think? Can we expect the iPhone 5 to match the devices we’ve been building through leaks or will Apple surprise us with something no one saw coming? Sound off in the comments section below or let me know on twitter @TiP_Jake.
