Similar to iPhone 4, 4S equivalent
A purported iPhone 5 part may hint at the shape of the new device. Vendor sw-box.com is now selling what it labels a "Replacement Sim Card Tray Holder Slot For Apple iPhone 5," despite few details of the upcoming phone having been leaked to the public. The part is said to be similar to the SIM tray used in the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S.
Because the tray is made of flat aluminum, it may indicate that Apple won't use a curved back made out of Liquidmetal alloy. Most rumors about the upcoming iPhone have revolved more around size and internal features; some for instance have suggested a larger screen, possibly as big as 4 inches. The most common claim is that the phone will support LTE 4G, especially now that the latest iPad is 4G-capable.
