Possible iPhone 5 Icon Shows Up in PhotoStream

We still don’t know what the iPhone 5 will look like, even though we have plenty of mock ups. But a new iPhone icon just popped up in a PhotoStream beta that is available to developers.

The icon is small and really could just be an artist’s rendering of what they think an iPhone looks like when shrunk down to a 100 pixel wide size, but it could be a sneak peak at a low resolution version of the iPhone 5.

Does this icon show what the iPhone 5 will look like?

As you can see, the iCon image looks a bit different from you would expect the iPhone to look like, complete with an elongated home button like we have seen on early iPhone 5 mockups.

The icon also looks like it may have something closer to an edge to edge display like this mock up.

Is this what the front of the iPhone 5 will look like?

Am i reading too far into a super small icon? Perhaps, but if it was any company other than Apple I probably wouldn’t. After all, Steve Jobs once called  Google Executive at home on a Sunday to complain about the shade of yellow in Google’s iPhone app icon.
