Comparison between iPhone 4S middle Plate and iPhone 4S Battery door with iPhone 5 Rear Housing or iPhone 5 Back Cover.
Firstly, obviously this iPhone 5 rear housing (rectangle-shaped metal item) is a little longer than iPhone 4S middle plate, so the iPhone 5 should be longer than iPhone 4S. This means we can guess the iPhone 5 screen should be 4 inches compared to the iPhone 4S screen which is 3.5 inches.
Secondly, this iPhone 5 Back Cover is not a flat plate but kind of a container. This item is designed to combine the middle plate with the battery cover. So this new Apple iPhone 5 component should be built in this housing. Three parts can be seen from the visual of the iPhone 4S, they are LCD with Digitizer Assembly, middle metal plate and battery lens cover. But according to this item, the iPhone 5 supposed to be two parts can be seen, they are the LCD with Digitizer Assembly and this item. Yes, iPhone 5 is a lens less than iPhone 4S, so we could understand iPhone 5 should be thinner than iPhone 4S.
Thirdly, the iPhone 5 rear housing is dark olive-green while the iPhone 4S middle pate is silver. Everyone knows it: the white and black iPhone 4S in the market. The black one is not pure black because the middle plate is silver, which means the side of black iPhone 4S is silver but not black. The iPhone 5 rear housing is olive-green, so it’s not difficult to guess the whole body should be in a same color.
Fourthly, the iPhone 4S earphone hole is on the top but the iPhone 5 earphone hole is at the bottom. Furthermore, the iPhone 5 charging port is much smaller; the SIM card tray is also smaller. The iPhone 5 inside components should be changed a lot in size, design and position. The SIM card tray is smaller than the previous product; we can guess the Micro SIM card should be smaller for iPhone 5. From the bottom we can see the loud speaker holes mesh cover is also quite different from the iPhone 4S. It’s said people could enjoy 3D voice with iPhone 5; maybe this is the reason to change the speaker holes.
