iPhone 5 mockup hands-on posted

A few moments ago I posted a picture of what someone thinks the iPad mini will look like, should Apple decide to launch it. This post is now about an iPhone 5. The device is a mockup created by a case manufacturer who apparently has the official specs ready for a launch in the next few weeks. The device is not working and is literally just parts cut out to match the dimensions that Apple has provided.

Instead of a picture, the Verge managed to spend some time with the case manufacturer although the company behind the mockup didn’t want to be identified, understandably.

What are your thoughts? The device is more of the same, quite literally, on the outside. It looks to use the same style metal band around the edges that acts as an antenna for both 3G/4G and wireless. It also has the same home button as well as a smooth glass front and glass back.

But, the iPhone 4 and 4S design is good and Apple will probably not want to change it too much over the next few iterations. They seem to want to sway away from teardrop shaped devices, clamshells and other bulging features… so why change it that much?

Take a look at the video above to see what the iPhone 5 might look like when launched in a few weeks.
