The blog of a Japanese iPhone repair company has offered a sneak-peak at what is allegedly the much-awaited next generation phone from Apple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL).
There has been a lot of speculation over the launch of Apple's next offering after the iPhone 4S and if you are one of the many waiting for it with breathless anticipation you can take a look at the pictures on iLab Factory.

The pictures show that all of the external parts are in place while the internals are still to be filled in. In tune with all its products the casing is of aluminium and is fairly thin.
A 4-inch display, a relocated headphone jack, smaller 19-pin dock connector are some of the highlights of the phone. Contrary to reports made earlier this year, there is no nano-SIM card tray.
The appearance is certainly sleeker than the current version of the phone with the home button showing an improvement. The sides of the phone have an angular trim.

Another major feature of the phone is that the case-back cannot be removed, as there are screws holding it in place - three on the back plate to hold the display, four on the unit's right wall and six on the left.
The pictures also show four screw holes at the top of the case - though it remains to be seen what their use is in the final product.
Shares of the company rebounded on Monday and were recently up 1.90% to $596.30.
