iPhone 5 With All-New Design is Now Under Production [RUMOR]

If you have been paying attention to various tech news as of late, you should know that the iPhone 5 is currently one of the hottest topics. Just this week, an engineering sample and a pre-release prototype of the iPhone 5 have been spotted in the wild. In another report, there have been murmurs that Apple may announce the new iPhone on August 7th which is unlikely due to many reasons. All these hoopla are not surprising especially when the iPhone 5 release date is fast approaching. In a new report, the next-gen iPhone is said to be already on its manufacturing phase.

According to the folks from the Japanese blog Macotakara, they have learned from their Chinese sources that the 6th generation iPhone has just entered its manufacturing phase. According to Macotakara via Google Translate:

Told that my reliable Chinese sources, new iPhone has started Manufacture Phase, then “5 iPhone cases” Are Being leaked at Alibalba.Com. This source Also Told, “iPhone 5 “Been which had leaked in May Were prototype (via 9To5Mac) Design for test, and Producing new iphone has SEVERAL Different Design in detail. The Design, which Were Told by this source, of this new iPhone HAS Blackface Naked partially glass and Aluminum Surface part covered.

As you can see from the roughly translated statement, it seems to give credence to the persistent rumors that the new iPhone will feature a new design. Earlier models that were leaked previously was no other than prototypes and the final product will surely look a lot more different. Macotakara has a pretty good track record when it comes to Apple rumors, so it is fair to give them the benefit of the doubt. But still, this could might as well be just another baseless rumor. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

    I am looking forward to seeing the release of the new iPhone. Looking at these images I really hope they are just test phones, testing the materials and thickness etc and not release versions. This two tone, two material back would never look right and as one of Apples core principles in their design is fluid design it would be strange for then to make something for release looking like the ‘leaked images’.

    As for the look of the material though that looks fine, to me if the whole back was that matte look I think it would look and feel nice and also provide a little more grip then the glass especially considering the likely thinner dimensions.

    Lets just wait and see, until launch date we will not know for sure what Apple has up their sleeves.
