The pictures, whose legitimacy and credibility still remains a question, demonstrate a thinner and taller version of the iPhone. The size and layout of the buttons on the phone is also quite different, and it appears to be at least 5mm taller than the iPhone 4S.

Forecasts are being made as to what the probable software and hardware technical specs of the iPhone 5 could be. Speculations that are circulating over online message boards discuss about the addition of numerous completely new functionalities to the phone. One of these may possibly be the Near Field Communication (NFC) feature, that allows users to use their phones as ‘swipe cards’ over retail pads in order to pay for shopped goods.

Terry Gou, CEO of Foxconn, the Taiwanese multinational consumer electronics giant who will be manufacturing the new iPhone 5, remarks that the new phone will be considerably superior than the present market leader, the Samsung Galaxy S3.

The original dock connector might be replaced with a newer version in the iPhone 5. It is also being said that the iPhone 5 will feature bigger speakers, as well as a headphone socket on its base.

Smartphone experts are hoping for Apple to introduce 4G technology into the iPhone 5. For those of you unacquainted with the term, 4G is the fourth generation of cellular communication standards, that provide enhanced telephony experience, with hi-tech capabilities such as cellular ultra-broadband web access, gaming services, high-definition cellular television, 3D television, and video conferencing, among many others.

When we look at the leaked images, we can see that the new phone has been significantly remodeled. The screen appears to be larger in size, and it may very well be 4 inches long. This could reflect Apple’s intention to compel the PC tablet market into purchasing its iPhone 5, instead of the conventional, standard-sized tablets.

In spite of rumours, Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook has rejected the possibility of the iPhone 5 featuring a larger screen size. He holds that the company has one phone, which has a standardized size, and this standardized approach has been adopted by Apple for all of its earlier iPhones. At the same time, the new iPhone 5 is expected to have a screen resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels.

Speculations are on-going in regards to what could possibly be the technical specifications of the iPhone 5’s camera. It could very well be an 8, or quite possibly, a 12 megapixel camera. The latter is the more popular opinion, due to the fact that Sony will be developing its sensors, which has already delivered a 12MP camera in its Xperia S phone.

Apple could opt for liquid metal to construct the casing of the iPhone 5. Liquid metal is a strong alloy, and has various unique properties. Furthermore, Apple has a 2 year exclusive contract to use the technology, which it also previously used to manufacture the SIM card ejector tray tool for its iPhone 3G.
