Keep in mind, these are not official Apple photos, and Apple has not even confirmed the existence of the iPhone 5. Apple is expected to reveal the iPhone 5 at a September 12 press conference and have the handsets in consumers' hands by September 21.
The photos seem to show a fully assembled iPhone 5. It is noticeably taller than the iPhone 4 or iPhone 3, but does not seem to be wider. This would support the 4-inch screen claims that would give the next-gen iPhone a bigger screen capable of 16:9 viewing.
The iPhone 5 is also thinner than both the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3, according to the images.
The pictures also show that the the volume and mute buttons will be on the left side of the device, and a SIM card slot on the right.
The iPhone 5 also seems to have the two-tone backing that was rumored earlier.If these pictures are accurate, then rumors about the iPhone 5 so far have been fairly accurate.
Underneath the hood, the iPhone 5 should either feature a powerful dual-core or quad-core processor and 4G capabilities. It will also help launch iOS 6, Apple's next iteration of its mobile operating system.
The bigger screen and the smaller 9-pin dock will make this version of the iPhone the biggest overhaul in years, and also one of the most antcipated electronics device of all time.
