If this video is anything to go by, the new iPhone will be thinner and have a larger screen

Factories in China are churning out casings for the new iPhone like nobody’s business. Just looking at the sheer variety of the cases available for the yet unreleased next-gen iPhone, these factories surely must know something. If anything, this is a clear indication of what we can expect to see from Apple this coming October 4.

Apparently these enterprising Chinese manufacturers based their iPhone cases on an iPhone 5 prototype that has allegedly gone missing from Foxconn factory in Shenzhe. This prized iPhone prototype was then sold to one of the iPhone case manufactures from US$3,100. The manufacturers then went to town with the prototype producing the selection of casings you see in the video. By the looks of it the new iPhone will feature a design that is much different from the iPhone 4.

Apart from being 33% thinner (almost as thin as the current generation iPod touch) we can see that the tapered tear-drop design and a bigger screen also present. The new iPhone case is also longer which suggests that the new iPhone will have a larger footprint than the current model.

If these casings are indeed based on the real deal, we’re in for a bigger surprise that we thought. All shall be revealed next week!
