Additional Confirmation that Taller iPhone 5 'Leaks Accurate'


Diagram by TheTechBlock / Don Lehman, Photo by iLab.cc

In case there was some continuing doubt, iMore reports that all the circulating iPhone part leaks are accurate and will be what the new iPhone will look like on September 12th:
iMore has learned that recent parts leaks and dummy phones are accurate representations of what the new iPhone (iPhone 5,1) will look like when Apple announces it on September 12, 2012. Almost identical in design to the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, the major visible differences will include a 4-inch display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, a metallic plate across most the back, and a miniaturized Dock connector and relocated 3.5mm headset jack along the bottom.
iMore cites "reliable" sources for the confirmation. The confirmation is notable in that iMore was the first to report on the September 12th announcement date for the new iPhone. That media event date was confirmed by Apple today.

Did anyone notice how the shadow of the 12 appears to form a "5" in the iPhone announcement graphic? Seems to suggest that the phone is using a modified A5 or an A5X processor instead of the A6.


Indeed. The average consumer is all about what chip the phone uses

It makes me wonder how different the Galaxy S4 will look from the S3. It will probably have the same style. Won't people complain then?

Apple settled on their style a couple years ago... but they've upgraded it a little bit with this next iPhone.

I can't wait to feel the unibody iPhone in my hand.

Actually, I think the Samsung S4 will look completely different again. Samsung has a different (or no at all) design philosophy.

Apple thinks design should be as reduced as possible, this implies a hypothetical perfect design that has no redundant parts at all. So the designs of the iPhone "converge" in some way and will change less from iteration to iteration until – again hypothetically – the perfect design is reached. If they would just forcefully change the whole design concept they would either admit they were completely wrong before or that they have no idea what they're doing.

Samsung however understood that most people are not seriously interested in any design philosophy. Well people like to hear that there is a philosophy behind it, but they don't actually care. What they really want is something new and shiny. And if a new iteration of a popular phone series doesn't look different, people won't buy as they think its uninnovative (just look at the people here).

Personally, I would have been pretty disappointed if Apple had changed the design just for the sake of it. This tells me they might have a plan in some way and are not still just guessing wildly.

The keynote:
"Well, ladies and gentlemen, as you all know we will be revealing the new iPhone. If you want to know how it looks like, go look at all the blogs. That is all." *applause*

And yet I still have friends that are sure that all of these leaked parts are part of a misdirection operation by Apple and that the "true" iPhone 5 will be revealed on the 12th.

...


While I know that's not the case, I wish it were true. This new iPhone is heinous! :(

Putting the many subtle clues together (I have a massive bulletin board with colored yarn and polaroids) I am thinking that the new iPhone may possibly have the same width as the current models, yet be taller and thinner.
