The latest iPhone may have a 4" screen, but it's basically the same old tried and true design

When it comes to next generation iPhone devices, it appears that Apple just can't plug the leaks of information to the public. In the case of the iPhone 4, a prototype was lost in a bar and subsequently wound up in the hands of Gizmodo. With the iPhone 4S -- and now with the "New iPhone" -- the leaks came from suppliers.
The latest leak on the "New iPhone" front comes from iLab Factory which has pictures of a fully assembled device (sans internal electronics). The repositioned speaker jack is clearly evident along with the smaller, 19-pin dock connector. The assembled device also confirms that Apple is going with a two-tone design theme for the "New iPhone", with the volume button, power button, and upper/lower halves of the back plate matching the color of the front plate of the device.
This latest leak also confirms that Apple must really love the overall design aesthetic that was initiated with the iPhone 4. We're guessing that Jony Ive must subscribe to the Porsche method of revamping products by making changes so subtle that you have to squint very hard to notice the new design details from generation to generation (a la Porsche 911).
But enough rambling, here are the shots of the assembled "New iPhone":

Agree about the SG3... If this is what the iPhone5 (4GS?) will look like, then HTC may have won on design this time around with their "One" phones. Whatever, though. Pretty matters to me, but more as a tie breaker if I can't otherwise decide between two devices.

I kind of want a new player in the market which brings it all together, I dunno maybe Microsoft can pull something out of the bag.

Nah, I'm talking crazy. :-)

3rd viable player would be very nice. 2 isn't bad as long as they are actually competing with each other (fortunately, they are at this point). As long as we don't end up with one company in control, I'm happy.

I think the Galaxy Neexus is still the most visually appealing phone I've ever seen.

Press shots don't do it justice.
