With the iPhone 5 release date expected to be announced during the coming weeks, newly leaked iPhone 5 pictures have emerged showing the handset’s shell sporting the A5 processor currently found within the iPad 2.
The latest iPhone 5 picture, which was posted by an anonymous tipster on Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, reveals little of the eagerly awaited handset’s physical form factor yet offers what is seemingly an uninhibited look at the innards of Apple’s next-generation handset.
iPhone 5 specs
With much speculation suggesting the arrival of the iPhone 5 will see a second, mid-range smartphone dubbed the iPhone 4S land, it is unknown which handset this leaked shot is supposed to relate to. With the 1GHz dual-core A5 processor found within the iPad 2 unlikely to be enough for the iPhone 5 to compete with the 1.2GHz dual-core Samsung Galaxy S II and 1.5GHz HTC Sensation XE, it could well be that the snapped handset is the iPhone 4S.
Further iPhone 5 specs leaked by this latest snap shot include the device’s battery with the iPhone 4’s 1420 mAh battery looking set to be replaced by a 1430 mAh offering.
