'iPhone 5' chippery captured on camera

Scaled up to A5

Apple

Another week, another influx of next-gen iPhone rumours and speculation. This time, though, we have images of what appears to be the chipset that'll be used within Apple's upcoming handset.

Is this the iPhone 5 chipset?

The first image - spied on Chinese-language site Weibo - shows off the A5 chip widely expected to be included in Apple's next-gen handset, PhoneArena reports. While the text is a bit blurry, a higher battery capacity can also be noted.

This was backed up by further pictures that popped up later on Macpost and showed the front side of the device. This clearly shares a similar form factor to the iPhone 4, prompting calls that, if real, this is indeed the iPhone 4S, rather than the iPhone 5.

Chinese site Pandaxtech posted yet another high res pic of the handset's innards earlier too. Seems pretty genuine. I guess we'll all know for sure when Apple announces the device officially, sometime in October... supposedly. ®
