White and Black iPhone 5 Parts Leak

Slowly and surely, more iPhone 5 parts seem to be leaking into the wild. MacPost has spotted two new claimed iPhone 5 parts from different online suppliers. The new parts include a camera lens replacement for the iPhone 5, as well as replacement headphone jacks for the iPhone 5.

The headphone jacks come in two colors: white and black, suggesting that Apple will be offering the iPhone 5 in at least the same two colors as they offer the iPhone 4.

Claimed iPhone 5 headphone jack parts

Apple has always produced black and white headphone jacks to maintain the consistency of appearance of their iPhones even on the small amount of the interior of the jack visible. For some reason, these parts (along with the sensor flex cable) seem to be amongst the first to leak. Similar parts leaked in the weeks leading up to the iPhone 4 launch back in 2010:

The camera lens replacement for the iPhone 5 sounded like it could be more interesting, but no details are offered for the part.

Apple had previously been rumored to be launching the iPhone 5 in white as well. The iPhone 4 was originally announced to come in both black and white, but production issues delayed the white iPhone 4 until the following April. The iPhone 5 is widely expected to launch in October.

I love it when we get leaks of innards that look completely unrecognisable to me, and instead of excited, just leave me feeling a bit confused.

Wake me up when a part w/ an embedded LTE chip is spotted. That's excitement-worthy news.

Wake me up when LTE is actually a viable alternative to 3G in any appreciable area.

Any particular reason? Do these headphone jack sockets not match Apple's usual high standards of design? Would you be afraid to be seen with a phone with that kind of sensor cable in your pocket down the street? :D
