Closeup Photos Show Clear Difference in Thickness Between iPhone 5 and 4S
Parts and repair firm iResQ has been slowly building its own iPhone 5 as parts have been coming in, as shown in yesterday's photos revealing the battery installed into the rear shell alongside several other components such as the dock connector/headphone jack flex cable, external buttons flex cable, and the rear camera assembly.
iResQ has now added a front panel to the mix, providing a good overall look at the iPhone 5 with several closeup photos. The assembly is of course non-functional, as it is missing the logic board and several other components, but nearly all of the externally-visible features are in place.
Perhaps most notable is one closeup side-on shot showing the iPhone 5 laying next to an iPhone 4S on a table. The photo shows that the iPhone 5 is indeed substantially thinner than the iPhone 4S, by approximately the thickness of either the front or rear glass of the iPhone 4S. Apple's move toward thinner body components and a thinner distribution of internal components enabled by the larger surface area due to the 4-inch screen of the iPhone 5 have allowed the company to substantially shrink the device's overall thickness. Previous reports have pegged the iPhone 5 thickness at 7.6 mm, 18% thinner than the iPhone 4S at 9.3 mm.
Apple is expected to introduce the iPhone 5 at its media event scheduled for next Wednesday, September 12.

Is it me, or have there been more leaks and mockups for this iPhone than for any previous models in years past?
Owning an Android phone makes a statement, and that statement is: "Yeah, this is where I am in life. It's not where I want to be, but I'm doing my best."

Either I am retarded, or my iPhone is not what I think has been all along. But the side by side, showing thickness, is not a 4S. That is a 4. Notice the strip is missing above the mute switch.

I HATE the bottom of the iphone!!! (where the speakers and charging port is) !! It looks like cheap plastic!!!! The iphone 4 looks so much more sturdy and more layed out! The different sized "speakers" will give me OCD xD
But hey,,,, Its only a mock up....

Not a fan that the front glass isn't flush with the edges - looks a bit inconsistent and sloppy, but if thats as thin as they can make it then I can't complain

How are my tiny carnie hands supposed to type on that thing. I can barely handle landscape mode on the current iPhone.
Back to formula!!
