iPhone 5 Front Panel

Good morning, may we kick off your week with a fresh iPhone 5 rumor? A new image recently leaked that is allegedly of the front panel of Apple's upcoming iPhone 5. There seems to be a brand new iPhone 5 leak every week and, admittedly, it's a bit hard to distinguish the legitimate photos from the fake ones. Today's image, however, appears to line up nicely with the renders we recently published.

We take these leaks with a grain of salt because, honestly, it's a bit like finding a bunch of random jigsaw pieces published all over the internet. Some might be for the puzzle Apple is working on and others could be completely illegitimate. We've also seen so-called engineering samples of the phone, additional front-facing panels, home buttonSIM card tray and headphone jack and earphone piece, among other parts.

We're just as sick of these leaks as you are, but Apple has reportedly started iPhone 5 production ahead of a planned August 7th announcement. We wouldn't be too surprised to see even more supposed leaks in the coming weeks.
