Purported iPhone 5 part leaks assemble again, pose for video
Apparently, pictures of supposed new iPhone parts assembled together weren't enough, because now a similar constructicon-style merge-to-form has been done on video and we get a look at what the leaks look like being held and spun around. This time it's Macotakara who're providing the purported preview.
This flexible power cable has several connectors for sound volume button, silent switch, sleep button and newer one more thing, which are placed left-top area where is opposite side of sound volume button with connecting a unknown parts or antenna. I don't have idea if this new power supplied parts should be NFC or not.
It'll be interesting to see if Apple goes NFC or not for the next iPhone. Even if the words NFC never leave Apple's lips on anything other than a radio spec page, they need a big demo moment and something for the Santa commercial this year, and going into Starbucks or Target and paying with a wave of an iPhone would certainly fill that bill.
As to the phone parts, like we said with the photos, they match one of the rumored 4-inch, 16:9 iPhone prototypes that we and others heard Apple was considering for the iPhone 5. Last year there was a lot of confusion over parts for an iPhone 5 that never made it into production (we got the conservatively designed iPhone 4S instead), but this year the leaks are more consistent with other information.
Hopefully we'll find out for sure in about 6 weeks. Meanwhile, here's the video:
