This time, a white iPhone 5 has been created, and again, they look truly spectacular, with incredible detail, the hoped-for 4-inch screen, with incredible levels of detail that include iOS 6 and wonderfully accurate fingerprints.
Yesterday’s article was entitled “Photoflop: the renderings of a fake iPhone 5”, and mused upon whether or not Martin Hajek’s “fake” and photo-like iPhone 5 renderings may well turn out to be more accurate than anyone expected.
Of course, Apple does like to surprise, shock and awe, and might say “and now for something completely different”, but the rumours and renderings seem “right” – at least, at this stage.
If the iPhone 5 launches and looks radically different, well, we’ll all be changing our tune (and surely our version of iTunes), but while the rest of the Android and WinPho world goes super-large screen, Apple is – according to the rumourmongers – keeping the same width and just making things taller, delivering on the expectation of a larger screen while keeping the same palm-friendly width.
Now that the white iPhone 5 renders have been widely seen all over the Internet, and look even more impressive (at least to some) than the black renders, the only thing left, besides a fuzzy pic of a real iPhone 5 that everyone will probably dismiss as faaaaaaaaaaake or yet another lost new iPhone in yet another bar, is for the real iPhone 5 to appear.
If, that is, Apple calls it the iPhone 5, and not the “new iPhone”, or the iPhone 4G, or the iPhone 4GS, or the iPhone 6, or iSomething-else-altogether.
So, with the launch of iOS 6 not due until the US “fall” or autumn as we’d call it, which is still at least two and a half months away (and is the spring timeframe for those in the southern hemisphere), we’ll presumably have to wait just as long for any next-gen iPhone to appear alongside that iOS 6 launch.
In the meantime, you can see the black renders at the link above, and the rest of Martin Hajek’s stunning white renders at this Flickr link.
