Leaked images of an iPhone 5 case suggest it will have an aluminum back

It’s been over one month since we published our last iPhone 5 rumour so here’s something to feed fan-boys’ appetites. Apple will launch two new iPhones next month; an improved specification iPhone 4 and a new “tear-drop” shaped iPhone 5.

The new iPhone 4, possibly referred to as the iPhone 4S, will be “priced aggressively” and will directly challenge the Android smartphone market. The high-end model, the iPhone 5, will be tapered slightly on two dimensions, giving it a “tear-drop” appearance. The screen will be larger and the device significantly thinner.

Seth Weintraub from 9to5mac.com describes the iPhone 5 as being “a sight to behold” and “impossibly light, yet firmer than Samsung Galaxy phones”. He also added that the “camera rivals point and shoot cameras and will be a major marketing point for this device”.

9to5mac.com still believe that Friday, October 7th is the scheduled release date, although rumoured production delays may revise this date. Unlike the launch of the iPad 2, pre-orders are expected to be introduced towards the very end of this month.
