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.

LOL... Yes, and we can all rest assured that the iPhone 5s will indeed have a rear cover since its now been proven. We can also assume by its size that it will have the smallest screen with the lowest resolution of all high end smartphones on the market. I am sure it will be fast though, and get IOS7,8,9 upgrades, although it will probably still look and operate just like IOS3. ;)

LOL.... Yes, and we can all rest assured that the iPhone 5s will indeed be the world's top selling handset in the coming year and that Apple will continue to suck up almost all the profits in the phone business. I guess something is happening here but you don't know what it is do you Mr Jones?

Sure I do.

Apple makes a good phone that is very fast and has very limited features compared to the competition. They sell them in high #'s and make great profit. Great for an Apple investor. For consumers, not such a good deal. I think you are well aware of the same thing I am... That Apple hasn't innovated anything since 2007 and the competition has passed them by. Most consumers arent tuned in enough to realize it yet.
