In early February, iPhone5Latest.com was the first to break the story of possibly leaked iPhone 5 images from Apple’s upcoming 2012 World Wide Developers Conference. We received the images from a source whose team focuses on finding out information about upcoming Apple products. Although we weren’t sure at the time if all of the reported features would actually pan out, we did feel it was a good idea to report on the images as they provided the best look at what the new iPhone 5 might look like. Now, two months later, we’ve found out a lot of additional information about iPhone 5 features. In today’s article, we’ll be comparing the leaked images to what we know now about the upcoming iPhone 5.
iPhone 5 Leaked Images Show 4G
When looking at the image above, one of the first things that’s obvious is the presence of a 4G icon. The iPhone 5 has been rumored to have 4G LTE capabilities for several months now, and up til recently, we weren’t really sure if this would actually happen. Then, of course, the new 4G LTE iPad came around. Now it’s all but certain that the new iPhone 5 will be the first iPhone to come with the coveted 4G LTE technology. That means a significantly faster iPhone 5 browsing and data usage experience for all. And it’s one thing that our leaked image above seems to have accurately predicted.
iPhone 5 Bigger Display Is Now More Likely
Here’s another thing that is pretty evident from looking at the image above and the one below: the overall size of the iPhone 5. While there were initially some questions about whether or not the iPhone 5 would be as big as it appears to be in this picture, it’s now looking like it will be. If recent reports of a 4.6 inch display are to be believed, the iPhone 5 pictured above is a very accurate representation of such an iPhone.
As you can see from the image, the iPhone 5 display appears to be at least a half inch bigger than the iPhone 4S display. It also appears to be a little bit wider of a display, too. We’d venture to guess that given the rumors we’ve been hearing–and the images here–the new iPhone 5 display will be at least 4.3 inches, if not 4.6 inches as reported.
iPhone 5 Display
The iPhone’s display hasn’t really changed all that significantly over the years. Yes, in recent years the iPhone has become a little bit more rectangular in shape, but overall the iPhone 4S looks a lot like the original iPhone, with the exception of one thing: the roundedness of the original iPhone. Based on our leaked iPhone 5 images above, as well as what we’ve been hearing in the rumor mill as of late, we think that the new iPhone 5 will return to the original iPhone’s roots with a more rounded look. This would make a lot of sense as many iPhone 4 and 4S owners who owned an older iPhone have reported missing the round shape. We expect Apple to implement the new iPhone 5 round shape in such a way that the device is still slim, yet fits better in the palm of the hand.
