As we approach WWDC 2012 in a couple of weeks, more and more iPhone rumours are starting to come out of the woodwork. The latest of which, shows what looks to be the backplate design for the upcoming iPhone. The part appears to support a popular rumour that the new iPhone featuring an elongated body that is supposedly designed to accommodate a larger screen – around the 4-inch region.
The case – which looks to be machined from a single piece of metal alloy – also shows a redesigned dock connector that’s smaller and rounder than the long-standing connector that you see in the current crop of iDevices. The casing also shows the 3.5mm earphone jack relocated to the bottom part. The bottom also sees a pair of unsightly speaker holes.
All these are of course still rumours at the moment but expect to see more and more to come up as we get close and close to June 11. Meanwhile, we don’t think the casing you see here is the real deal. It lacks the detailed in design that make Apple products so desirable. We could be wrong but the pictures just don’t look right.
