El Cinco cases indicate taller body, tiny port

John Moe May 30, 2012

Engadget has photos of what it says is a case for the impending iPhone 5, or El Cinco as we call it here at Tech Report. The shots add further support for the long-standing rumor that the screen will be bigger and taller. Also that the port will be smaller.

Says Engadget:

Apple may likewise be going all old-school iPhone on us, with a modern twist: we could be reverting to an aluminum back with more receptive materials (likely glass) at the ends, just in a much thinner form that keeps the steel antenna band.

These and other similar rumors (how’s that secrecy thing working out for you, Tim?) fuel the long-standing belief that the big change in El Cinco won’t necessarily be the software
