ETrade Supply claims it has the rear shell of the upcoming iPhone 5S

The world was finally graced with the iPhone 5's presence in September of this year after a long wait (remember when we all thought the iPhone 4S was actually going to be the 5 in 2011? Oops). Only three months after the 5's release, rumored photos of the iPhone 5S are already starting to circulate. 

ETrade Supply, a parts firm, has released many photos of what it believes to be the shell of the iPhone 5S. More specifically, it looks to be the rear shell, and it shows a few minor differences between the 5 and the future 5S. 

One difference includes the placement of the logic board screw holes, which is slightly different from the pattern in the current iPhone 5. ETrade Supply also offered a few other differences, which are highlighted in blue, yellow, purple and red below. 

While it's unclear where these photos came from, the rear housing appears to be genuine with the normal regulatory identifiers, IMEI, etc. But one possible theory is that it's an old, discarded iPhone 5 design.

After spending all their money on iDevices they will not have enough money for your motel. After all, baristas are not rich.

I'm using that cool new mapping feature to get me to the closest Apple store so I'd better leave. I wish other phones could do this!

I know it's like nothing I've ever seen.
It so "different".
I think I wet myself.

It's NOT like the same thing with just a few tweeks or anything like that, I mean really it's so "new".

Cue the Samsung ads - I love those!
