Last week, we got a look at what could be the front bezel for Apple’s next iPhone. While it didn’t put an end to the rumors about just how large the screen will be on this iPhone 5, it seemed generally consistent with what we had been hearing. Today, images of a couple new components surface, giving us a look at the phone’s rear.
Pictures of these black and white rear shells come from two different sources and appear to be consistent with each other. Both show the sort of reduced-size docking connector we’ve been hearing rumored for the iPhone 5, which may be motivated by a desire to allow for larger, louder speakers. You can also see that the phone’s headphone jack has been repositioned to now live down at the bottom. Up top, there’s what appears to be room for a larger camera element.
Beyond these images of the phone’s casing itself, the sources behind this imagery provide some new rumor fodder; supposedly, Apple could be planning more color options for the iPhone 5 than just white and black, with at least two other hues joining them. Apple’s certainly no stranger to having a colorful assortment of products like the iPod, but going beyond neutral tones would be a radical departure for the iPhone itself.
