iPhone 5 replacement parts cropping up online

Online parts supplier TVC Mall claims to have some iPhone 5 replacement parts in stock. If these are the real deal, it gives us a bit more information on the internals of the iPhone 5. Besides the rear camera, TVC has a few other iPhone 5 replacement parts listed - an iPhone 5 replacement battery, audio jack flex cable (pictured above), and the prox sensor flex.

Compared to the iPhone 4, these parts seem like they may be legit. It also wouldn't be the first time suppliers get their hands on parts before the official release of a device. We also see about 20 fakes for every real leak as well. After repairing several iPhones over the past 2 years, I'd say these parts could maybe be the real deal.

I find myself kind of hoping they're not as I really wanted to see a dual LED flash on the iPhone 5. Sigh. Here's to hoping these are maybe just a really good Photoshop mockup of some iPhone 4 parts.

I just p a i d $21.87 for an i P a d 2-64GB and my boyfriend loves his Panasonîc Lumîx GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS.I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.Here is the website we use to get it all from, http://BídsFírst.Com

For people saying Gaga does not take risks, are you kidding me. She released a mainstream song with the word "Transgendered." She gave a face to the LGBT community. She opened a foundation for bullied youth. Born This Way was the fastest selling record of 2011. Born This Way was number 1 in 23 countries for seven weeks. I honestly think its between Adele and Gaga and whoever voted for Rihanna needs there heads checked.

Hi, Neat post. There is an issue along with your web site in web explorer, could check this? IE still is the market leader and a huge section of other people will omit your fantastic writing because of this problem.
