Chinese manufacturers seem to be fairly confident with a set of recently leaked Apple iPhone 5 designs, as they’ve already started producing cases based on that document. In turn, Mac Rumors commissioned CiccareseDesign to create high quality iPhone 5 renderings made as closely as possible to the leaked case designs.
Speculation lead to a more oval shaped home button, a 4 inch screen, tapered edges on the back in aluminum (rather than glass as on the iPhone 4). “The final dimensions of the new design are calculated to be: 4.33″ x 2.36″ and .27″ thickness at the top and .21″ at the bottom In comparison, the iPhone 4 dimensions are: 4.5″ x 2.31″ x .37″. So the new design is actually shorter than the existing iPhone 4, but slightly wider and thinner.”
The iPhone 5 is expected to be released in September or October of this year.
