Concept iPhone 5 pictures show new metal-backed design

Ahead of the expected September iPhone 5 release date, new concept iPhone 5 pictures have showcased the handset's potential new design

 

With WWDC coming to pass with no sign of the much rumoured iPhone 4S follow on, newly claimed iPhone 5 pictures have hit the web as a series of very convincing renders.

Offering a tantalising insight into the potential design of Apple’s next-generation pocket blower, the latest concept iPhone 5 pictures to do the rounds show a handset with a drastically changed form factor and a number of new, exciting features. Following last week's outing of the standard black next-generation handset, newly revealed images have now showcased what the future white iPhone 5 might look like.

Doing away with the current glass backed design of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S models, the latest concept renders show a sleek, slimline handset with a sultry looking brushed aluminium matt black rear. Unlike a flurry of current iPhone 5 rumours, the latest images showcase a handset with the same 3.5-inch display size as its predecessors.

Moving the existing 3.5mm audio jack from the handset’s top edge to the bottom, the iPhone 5 concept sees the headphone port lined up alongside a pair of improved inbuilt speakers and a new, compact dock connector.

Apple iPhone 5 Rumours

The most eagerly awaited smartphone release ever, the Apple iPhone 5 has been a thing of rumour and speculation for well over a year with an iPhone 5 release date likely to see the mythical handset formally unveiled this September as the first device to come preinstalled with the recently unveiled iOS 6 software.

Largely expected to come toting a larger Retina display that its current 3.5-inch offering, a number of iPhone 5 rumours have suggested the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Nokia Lumia 900 rival will touch down with a quad-core processor and improved camera optics in tow.
