Well, the back is obviously not the same metal alloy with different finishes as the earlier MacRumors article cited. I mean, if it is white on the top and bottom, and the metal is silver in color, it's obviously two different materials or the white is simply painted on...

I also assumed the side bands of the white would be white, not silver, like the black's is black. It does look a bit awkward from this angle (the white one, that is)

I do like the headphone jack on the bottom but why would they move away from the 30 pin jack when hundreds of millions of devices out there use it. Makes no sense.

If it is gonna look like this, Sir John can put his design in his ******. Ugly!

At least with all these leaks, we'll have cheap cases available come launch. Looking forward to switching back to Apple!

Home is everywhere and nowhere.
So is it wider, in the one pic the black front looks wider which I like. The taller one, not so much...
I measured it roughly and it has about the same 1.95 ratio but still the screen might be bigger.

I measured the picture of this iPhone back.

It's

42 mm Width

82 mm Height but it a taken from a good angle so a tiny bit more

82/ 42 = 1,952380952381

iPhone 4s

58.6 mm Width

115 mm Height

115/ 58.6 = 1,962457337884

So, maybe it has the same dimensions.

Personally I like it for the most part. I wonder if the aluminum back is photographing well, maybe it looks whiter in person?

Looks like a long 4S

I was really looking forward to a new tapered design. Seems like Apple is sticking to the same look over and over on all their products...

Wow does the white look awful. The black is pretty cool looking, but the white version just looks awkward.
I would bet that the white will not look like that. It has to be a film or something. Apple would never make the center of the iPhone a puke color. The final versions, if this is the phone, will likely be one color down the rear panel.

Looks like an iPhone 4 with some nice refinements. I won't complain about that.

Longer and not wider will have me looking at a different phone come fall...
Really? As much as I fetishize the hardware, I always figured the real reason people consider themselves Apple devotees is the software. I don't even want to imagine abandoning the iOS and OSX ecosystems.

If this is going to be the actual design i'm pretty sture i'm going to sell all my shares. This is even uglier than a Samsung product.

The middle part of the backside looking different is pretty ugly imo. I don't think they'd release it with a 2 tone back plate like that.

Moving the facetime camera to the center is a good idea.

Manufacturing the phone with mismatched colors is a bad idea.

Beautiful, but I don't see a point of those thin black/white stripes top and bottom on the back. Why not a single aluminum panel? Then you could have interchangeable faceplates and BOOM production simplified.
