New iPhone 5 Case Pictures Unveiled
Thin and sleek is apparently what Apple is going for with the iPhone 5, if new images of the smartphone’s case are to be believed. According to Digital Trends’ Andrew Couts, Chinese firm Mettei Technology revealed the pictures, which are similar to leaked iPhone 5 photos from last month.
“Based on what we can gather from the images, the cases have a near-identical design to the case unveiled by 9to5Mac late last month. The designs are so similar, in fact, that they may well be one in the same. Both this case and the previously revealed case have slots for the headphone jack, rear-facing camera and the ringer on/off switch,” reports Couts.
The Apple blogosphere has been wondering what the iPhone 5 might look like for a while, as many mock-ups and reports of the phone’s features have surfaced over the past few months.
“Unlike the 9to5Mac leak, however,” writes Couts, “These cases were revealed to us not in a leak, but in an email advertising the cases for sale. The company claims that they can have orders for the ‘silicon case for Apple iPhone 5,’ which come in 10 different colors, shipped within four days after they receive payment.”
