If the recently released GooPhone i5 [Android-powered iPhone5] sounds iDevice fun-making to you, then you will probably love this official next-generation Apple smartphone’ leak. It would appear a Taiwanese’s celebrity — former teen idol — Jimmy Lin has posted the upcoming iPhone5’ pictures holding in his hand.
The Lin lets leaked the iPhone 5 images (shown above) on his Weibo account (the Chinese version of Twitter). What we can confirm here, judging by the pictures, is that the long-rumored 19-pin docking port will be featured with the next iPhone. As well as the audio jack on the device will grab its spot at the bottom.
Additionally, as stated by Jimmy Lin, the Apple’s device is slimmer and taller, and feels pretty much the same as the iPhone 4S when held. Again, it’s 4-inch screen equipped device and use the “same [metal] aluminum alloy” found on the iPad.
Following is what Jimmy Lin exactly stated on the Weibo update:
今天了證實iPhone 5 的確將變得更長，並採用與 iPad 相同的鋁合金材質，同時也因 採用4 吋螢幕，厚度更薄，但我覺得手感差不多，不過耳機插孔也改為在底部。在連接器方面，，iPhone 5 將不再使用標準 30 pin 的連接器，改用較小的 19 pin 連接器。
Judging by the screenshots, the iPhone 5 will also have at least space for one more row of icons on the Home screen.
