However, just some time after making the images public they took them off their website and in its place put up a message saying their cases will be ready when users’ have the new iPhone 5 with them. For iPhone 5 enthusiasts though, BGR noted down the unique new shape of the device and how it differed from the previous generation models.

The iPhone 5 appears to be slimmer and lighter than its predecessor. Looking at the cases in which lay the elusive smartphone, it seems that they possess tapered edges along with a trim profile. In place of a glass back panel, the new Apple offering may feature one of aluminum.

Anticipated by many, the fifth generation model is all set to release next month and will apparently sport a wider screen size of 4-inches. As per wide speculation, it may also equip an 8MP camera and run on an A5 dual-core processor.
