Just a few days ago, a leaked image of iPhone 5 in a Chinese website which claimed that iPhone 5 will have “Edge-to-Edge display”. Now another Chinese website tw.apple.pro has shown an image of the supposed part of the 5th generation iPhone which suggests a handset with a sliding screen cover and a hardware keyboard.
The image posted on that website appears to be a 30-pin dock connector cable from an unreleased iPhone, with the part number 821-1300-02 HF/c1.
A rough translation of the report via Google Translate claims that recent online photos of a different part claiming to show an edge-to-edge 4-inch display in the next iPhone are fake. Some reports have suggested that Apple is considering a slightly larger screen size for its next handset.
Instead, the report claims Apple has built a new iPhone model with a “sliding cover.” It notes that the alleged device has a “frame shape” similar to the current iPhone 4, though the device is “slightly thicker” than the current-generation iPhone.
The Chinese website apple.pro has provided leaks to various hardware of Apple.
Only time will say about the authenticity of this feature when iPhone 5 will be launched this summer!
