iPhone 5 design change hinted at by leaked Apple parts

Apple is expected to change the iPhone's design ahead of the iPhone 5 release date with a new form factor hinted at by leaked parts

A leaked proximity light sensor reportedly set for inclusion within Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5 release has suggested the mooted handset will sport a newly designed form factor.

The proximity sensor which was acquired by SW-Box.com, who claim the component will feature in the iPhone 5, boasts a number of design differences to the part that appeared in the iPhone 4 suggesting Apple is to refresh the iPhone’s form factor ahead of the iPhone 5 release date.

Despite Apple having yet to even confirm the existence of iPhone 5 rumours have surrounded the handset’s expected arrival for a number of months with repeated reports suggesting the device is to sport a new slim, rounded edge form factor.

Other iPhone 5 rumours have seen the Apple handset pegged with a 1GHz dual-core processor, 8-megaxpixel camera with 1080p Full HD video capabilities and even support for NFC technologies.

Will Apple change the iPhone form factor for the fifth-generation device? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
