New speaker grills, dock connector, headphone jack, curved back to give the illusion of less size, larger screen, and a new housing material.

Is it just me or does it look fatter than the current one? If there is one thing I would absolutely hate, it would be an increase in thickness. I don't care if its the same as now - just not greater.

Not a fan on the headphone jack being on the bottom, but I know thats what the recently found pics of supposed parts suggests.

Looks MUCH better than that horrendous design that was on MacRumors a few days ago.

Updated the original image with a smaller taper for a thinner look. The antenna band is slightly shorter than the current iPhone.

I think it would be a good idea for the headphone jack to be on the opposite side of where the camera is.

Currently you can get your headphone cable in front of your camera quite a lot if you're on a video call, this would be alleviated if the headphone jack is on the other side.

Looks way more credible than the 'leaked' picture shown the other day.
Having the audit port on the bottom will make it be upside down when having it connected to the car stereo and the iPhone in the cup holder.
But it makes it easier to put in inside a pocket when having the earphones cable connected.

However what material will be the back made of?
Ceramic?
Poly Carbonate?
Plastic with soft touch surface?

I don't think the back will be tapered though. The leaked photos looked like the back panel was flush with the antenna band.

Looks like a cheap Chinese GS2 knockoff. For Apple's sake, the actual phone better not be that thick.

Now that is much better than those god awful 2 tone examples posted earlier this week/last week.

That just looks sexy. More believable albeit a little thick. Unless the metal banding is thinner than the current iPhone.

So is this a personal rendering, or is there a source for this?

It's quite nice. And I don't think it's thicker, just appears thicker. If it doesn't "bulge" out on both sides of the metal antenna like the current iPhone 4/4S design, then it should be thinner.

Bad headphone jack placement, therefore i don't like it.

Unless there are 2 headphone jack placements.. then it's good for double ;)

I would be highly disappointed if that's the new iphone. Looks like the Iphone 4 & 4s with a few tweaks
