We have exclusively received meatier images of iPhone 5 back cover in White, along with Volume flex cable, frontal camera, rear camera Lens, Vibrator and battery from a Chinese part supplier. The codename ‘N94′ marked on cover clearly indicates that it is a fifth-generation iPhone part. The front cover, however, is labeled “EVT2″ (Engineering Verification Testing) with date ’07-June-2011′, marking it as early development prototype.
[Update 1 29-Aug-2011]: More iPhone N94 Prototype Photos Leaked
Few months back, 9to5Mac first found references to “N94″ and “N93″ while digging around in iOS 5.0 SDK, suggesting that these are internal code names for two unreleased iPhone models (probably for iPhone 5 GSM and CDMA model).
However, the leaked back cover of iPhone 5 doesn’t come with any clue as to the specifications. FCC ID, Size and Model numbers are intentionally ‘XXed’ out. The camera flash position is still the same, debunking earlier claims that Apple might relocate LED flash from the camera module. But the front cover insinuates lots of internal circuitry changes.
Last week images of Earphone Audio Jack replacement parts were leaked in both black and white color triggering speculation that iPhone 5 will be available in white color too. The cover in ‘White’ re-affirms our claim that iPhone 5 in white is in production and will be retailing from day one.
The images of proximity light sensor, front camera, rear camera Lens and battery for iPhone 5 ties-in perfectly with earlier leaks. However, Audio flex and Volume flex part for iPhone 5 suggests a lot of design changes. We will post more details here as we are still digging out the details.
