Is this the iPhone 5?

New leaked pictures could be the real deal

Given that Cupertino can't seem to keep a lid on all these pesky iPhone 5 leaks, there's a growing consensus on what Apple's new handset will look like. Still, it's nice to have something a little more visual, and now we have some glossy new snaps to pore over.

As ever, take these leaked pics with a pinch of salt – but these iPhone 5 pictures are the most plausible thing we've seen so far. The images confirm the rumoured 4-inch screen and bigger form factor – 58.47mm x 123.83mm to be exact. The headphone jack is now placed on the bottom of the device rather than the top, too.

It appears that the guys at Kitguru, who leaked the pictures, have now taken the story down (or possibly been kidnapped by Apple) – but they did state that this was a "pre-release test sample" likely to be polished before release.

However, with an Autumn launch expected, it's unlikely that the final design will look radically different to this. Let's just hope Apple doesn't lose it in a bar before then.
