Leaked on Chinese microblogging site Weibo , this little glimpse into what’s being claimed as the innards of an iPhone 5 show at least 3 things of note:
- A5 processor (Same CPU used in the iPad 2)
- A slightly bigger/stronger battery (4.2v, 1430 mAh versus 3.7v , 1420 mAh)
- The LCD backpanel (the blue bit just barely visible on the left side) definitely appears to be going from edge to edge, as rumors have long suggested the display would do.
If you’re having a hard time telling heads from tails in the picture, note that the components on the right would actually flip over (see the attached cable) and rest on top of that visible on the left. Note that some components appear to be missing — most notably, there’s no antenna, nor any body/caging to hold it all in place.
