New iPhone 5 case photos purport to show much thinner and longer form factor

News, Rumors

With rumors of Apple releasing two new iPhone models this Fall, we’ve seen an increasing number of purported iPhone 5 case schematics and moldings over the past few weeks.

In the latest development, the Italian site Macitynet posts photos of an iPhone 4 resting comfortably inside what they claim is an iPhone 5 case. While we can’t know for sure what the iPhone 5 will look like, the cases above and below are true to reports that the next-gen iPhone will be longer, wider, and thinner than the iPhone¬† 4.

Notably, this alleged iPhone 5 case sports a tapered or teardrop design which is strikingly similar to a rendering based upon an inside source and posted at This Is My Next earlier this year and similar to iPhone 5 case moldings that surfaced in late July.

Some more photos illustrating the alleged larger form factor of the iPhone 5 after the break.
