The iPhone 5 has surfaced in some beautiful new mockup photos that depict what the device might look like clasped inside of a hand.
Assuming that the iPhone 5 is somewhat close to this in size and appearance, the photos show the scale of the new design that Apple might be releasing with its next iPhone.
These mockups seem to incorporate many of the rumored features that are said to be included with the new iPhone 5.
We see the metal backing with the two pieces of glass above it, something that our exclusive engineering samples seem to point to, and we see the face time camera now in the center of the device, right above the speaker, as has been rumored.
This iPhone 5 also seems to be taller, again something that has been rumored and may have been confirmed by iOS 6. We also get a look at the new dock connector as well, something else Apple is rumored to be including with the new iPhone.
Of course, these are just renders and might not be anywhere close to the real thing.
