    Apple.Pro publishes an unverified image of what claims to be the back cover of the iPhone 5. The shell is white with 2 distinct holes in it. One for the camera, and the other presumably for the camera flash. Apple.Pro can't verify the authenticity of the image.

    The image comes a week after the revelation of a iPhone 5 case which also had an extra hole that was believed to be for the camera flash. That case has since been removed from the original vendor site.

    Never mind the iPhone case, but is that a Twitter for Mac copy in the background?

    I also love the amount of advertisement on some of these images #scarcasm.

    I could even make a fake back part like that...

    Reflection of the camera taking the picture?

    How effective would a flash be that far away?

    Effective as in illuminating the subject or taking a better photo?

    For a) I think it would be effective, since most cameras do have a flash somewhat apart from the lens.

    for b) As for improving anything? There was some talk that there might be a slight advantage, but one advantage would be avoiding some issues that the white iPhone 4 had with its flash. Apple slightly redesigned the iPhone 4 camera and flash in the final white iPhone 4s, presumably due to some issues.

    It's hard to see the flash on the iPhone in the Apple logo ... maybe it was shot with an iPhone 5 :eek:

    I'm really not a fan of the flash being all by itself on the right side of the iPhone. I like it being right next to the camera for whatever reason. Maybe it will grow on me... :rolleyes:

    I can make it using paint on windows 98.

    Starting to feel like an iPhone launch is closer than September. The timing of the recent leaks feels like the typical few weeks before a launch, not the few months others are suggesting.

    That's just the vibe I get. Who knows?!

    There is no flash on the white iPhone taking the picture. Maybe this picture was taken with an iPhone 5? Anyone have the metadata?

    This must be a fake. The iPhone 5 I ordered today from the fellow in Nigeria was all glass and curved. I'm even getting it for free once I deposit Prince Gnumbutee's inheritance in my bank account.

    Of course! That makes sense.

    Thanks.

    I'd like to see the apple logo on the back illuminate in call etc like my MBPro. Otherwise the ip4 is rolling fine for me. Bring on iOS 5

    I think this stuff is real. Lately the prelaunch leaks (ala iPad 2) have been dead on. But, this is a boring design. Each new iPhone makes the last one look old and retro. How can they ever do that to the stunning iPhone 4? I guess larger screen would work.

    Who cares about the back? Some previous "leaks" have already shown that the iPhone 5's camera flash is on the other side of the back. What we do care is whether there will be a larger edge to edge screen or any curved glass on the FRONT! :D

    Well any rumor is better than no rumor.

    The more rumors like this that come out, the more I am hopeful the iphone 5 is coming out very soon.

    It would be pretty bad ass if the apple logo lit up when the flash goes off!

    Don't all URL's(I heard they're changing this soon) use Latin letters?
