Apple iPhone 5 to Have Radical New Design?


Published September 16, 2011


The iPhone 5 hasn’t been announced yet, but that hasn't stopped accessory makers from posting upcoming cases for the highly anticipated handset. 

Case-Mate has published a page on its website with six different case designs for the new iPhone 5, and we’re loving the radical new body shown in the images. 

We’ve heard tons of speculation that the iPhone 5 will be thinner and lighter than the current model and these cases suggest it will have tapered edges and a slim profile as well. Finally, the images appear to an aluminum back on the fifth-generation iPhone, which also jibes with earlier reports. 

The iPhone 5 is expected to be available in the United States in October, so we’re not surprised to see leaks like this start to spill out across the web.

Case-Mate has subsequently pulled the iPhone 5 cases from its website.
