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":

PS: The Japanese server is being hit hard... some 503 errors.

It looks like they wanted a metal uni-body like the iPad, but needed the glass/plastic for various sensors and such - like the iPad2/3 - which have a plastic are a on the back.

The shape of the iPhone4 is quite good. Having a super-thin phone is awkward to hold.

PS: I don't own any iPhones... I will still most likely get another Android phone, the MC Atrix HD is top of my list - the Galaxy S3 is there too.
