See how the iPhone 5 stacks up against the iPhone 4 (and iPhone 3GS)

A fully-assembled iPhone 5 appears next to its predecessors – so how does Apple's new iPhone measure up?

We've seen plenty of renders of the Apple iPhone 5, and even shots showing the assembled phone. Now French blog has bagged shots of what it's claiming is a fully assembled iPhone 5 – which it's helpfully pictured next to the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS for comparison.

The images confirm the rumours swirling around the iPhone 5 – showing that it's both taller and thinner than its immediate predecessor the iPhone 4S – thanks in part to a thinner in-cell touch panel screen.

The iPhone 5 is expected to arrive packing a 4in screen as well as a new smaller dock connector.

Are these shots the real deal? We'll find out when Apple launches the iPhone 5 – with all signs pointing to September 12th as the big day. Check our iPhone 5 rumour round-up for the latest news.
