More alleged iPhone 5 cases show flat back, curved edges

Suggests leaks still happening at Foxconn

Yet another Asian company is claiming to have iPhone 5 cases for sale. Shenzhen L&Y Technology, based in Guangdong province, is selling cases with multiple designs and colors. The accessories are consistent with other cases, which all imply that the next-generation iPhone will have a flat back with tapered edges, mimicking the aesthetics of the iPad 2 and fourth-generation iPod touch.

The cases also suggest that Apple is returning to elongated volume buttons, instead of the iPhone 4's circular ones. A space for a headphone jack remains at the top, as is usual. A cut-out for a mute switch is located near the hole for a rear-facing camera; as with other iPhone 5 cases, the camera hole is wider than what is normally seen on gear for the iPhone 4.

The flurry of iPhone 5 cases in recent weeks may reinforce the idea that the new device is due shortly. It also suggests, however, that security problems at Foxconn have gone unresolved. One or more workers at Foxconn may have sold iPhone 5 specifications to Chinese accessory makers hoping to get a headstart on production.

    Hmm...

    Looks quite a bit like a Samsung Galaxy S 2... Samsung should sue Apple over that.

    Like the Galaxy S2, with a lot less plastic

    This is expected, the same taper-to-flat back that the iPad 2 has

    just wait

    if this design a la the iPod touch 4 and iPad 2 is true, folks will be all over the place declaring that Apple changed to this design because there really was something flawed with the iPhone 4 design
