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.

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.

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.
