Rumors have indicated that September 7th will be the day that Apple will announce the iPhone 5 release date. A media event is said to be held by Apple to reveal it’s latest creation.
Macrumors have caused quite a stir in the iPhone community recently, with it’s supposedly accurate renderings of the iPhone 5. These renderings spawned from the case schematic which was leaked last month. The schematics were said to be from Chinese case manufacturing companies, who are rumored to have already begun manufacturing these said cases.
Macrumors turned to digital art company CiccareseDesign, to “create high-quality renderings made as closely as possible to the original leaked case designs. Measurements were taken against the original case design leaks, and then imported into 3D modeling software.”
The design company basically reversed engineered the case blueprint to create an accurate rendering of how the iPhone 5 will look like.
Judging from both the “case schematic” leak, and Macrumors’ ingenious idea of creating a render, we can safely say that these depictions have a 99% possibility of being accurate.
These renderings have answered a few questions regarding the iPhone 5′s design. One of them being it’s screen size. Judging by the render, the iPhone will have a 4 inch screen measured diagonally. Although it is not much in terms of growth from the previous iPhone it does mean that there will be approximately 15% more viewing space.
The rendering also shows an “elongated” home button. Which is basically a square inside of a rounded rectangle or oval. This might both prove and disprove some rumors. On one side there is a high possibility of the home button making a comeback, squashing any rumors of a “gesture” system in place of it. On the other side, the elongated button might introduce a swipe enabled home button, which some rumors have suggested to be included in the iPhone 5.
Another feature from the render that is worth noted is it’s similarity to the iPhone 3G or iPod Touch. Apparently Apple will be abandoning the glass back design and will be going back to the aluminum for the iPhone 5.
As September 7th inches closer and closer, anticipation for the Apple’s latest innovation grows even bigger. There is no doubt more leaks and rumors will pop up in the coming weeks, but everyone will save their opinions and thoughts for when it is finally revealed by Apple around 4 weeks time.
