Is this the new iPhone 5?

With iPhone 5 rumors in a flurry, we caught a glimpse of what could have been the iPhone 5 last week. However, the photo was blurry and grainy, and it was shot at a distance so we couldn’t get a good look at it. This time around, high-resolution photos have surfaced, and it looks like these images could be representative of the real thing.

The claim is that the photo above is a Chinese clone of the upcoming iPhone 5, and since we’ve seen some pretty accurate clones before, it’s not too crazy to think that these pictures are far off from the real deal. It looks like the clone of the iPhone 5 is a hybrid of the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4. It keeps some of its flat surfaces, but adds some curves to the sides. If this is what we can look forward to in terms of design, I’d be happy – the curves do add a more organic feel in the hand.

Word is that this clone is 7mm thick. Or should I say thin? It’s possible that the actual model will be thicker, given a difference in innards, but what if the iPhone 5 is even thinner than the current model? At some point, you’d think that battery size and life will have to be sacrificed along with the awkward feeling of holding an incredibly thin smartphone.

Will we finally see what Apple has up its sleeves this October? Let’s hope so. All these rumors, images and hysteria is driving me a little crazy.
