The iPhone 5 hasn’t even been out for 3 months yet & now we’re hearing that the 5S is in the works.
First rumors have come out this week. Apparently the new smartphone will already arrive June 2013, just 9 months after the release of the iPhone 5. Also it is expected to come with NFC connectivity and a “super HD” camera. Also analysts are speculating that the iPhone 5S will actually come in 6-8 colors, which would be a first for the phone, which until now only came in two colors.
Only time will tell which one of the rumors becomes reality and we will of course keep you posted.

The iPhone 5 was announced last week, aside from a new design, the phone is full of new features as well. Some might have been disappointed, when comparing the iPhone 5 to the 4S and some also mentioned concern that Apple was playing catch-up to their competition with the release. Since the iPhone 5 releases this Friday, the below infographic gives a great overview of how the smartphone compares to the iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Leaked photos have surfaced online which claim to show the final design of the iPhone 5.
The photos were posted to it168.com and reposted by Nowhereelse.fr. The site notes that there is a tiny white border around the glass separating it from the metal frame. In previously leaked photos there was a visible gap between the glass and the frame leading the site to conclude that the border may be there to minimize damage to the screen in case of impact.

The phone is drawn as accurately as possible, based on leaked dimensions. Some features such as the new dock connector and larger screen size are almost definitely likely to appear in the new iPhone 5. Other features are included only for concept purposes, such as ‘Fingerprint Scan to Unlock’.
Everything has been drawn and animated from scratch; from the icons, to the user interfaces and of course the hardware itself. I used a combination of Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects and Apple’s Final Cut Pro X.
Apple is expected to officially announce the iPhone 5 tomorrow.
iLab has posted some photos which look to be a fully assembled ‘iPhone 5′ put together using replacement parts it managed to obtain.

Kitguru has posted images of what it claims are pre-release test samples of the ‘iPhone 5′.
As our regular readers know, KitGuru has operatives across the globe. Out in the Far East, an early iPhone 5 has been spotted and – using the very latest techniques – we have managed to capture its reflected photons.
Edit: This is a pre-release test sample so its safe to say it will be ‘cleaned up’ for the retail release.
Although these images do match recent leaks they don’t come across as authentic.

If the new iPhone 2012 looks beautiful in black—in all its 80s Sony-ish glory—the renderings of the white model are even prettier. The aluminum and chrome unibody with the white accents looks just gorgeous.
Gizmodo reader Martin Hajek sent us these images of the white model, which he rendered using allegedly leaked photos of parts as a reference. I love that he even added fingerprints to the aluminum back.
