The image of a purported iPhone 5 part has recently hit the Web, and - while the authenticity of the image hasn't been verified - the photograph shows an iPhone back panel, which is white and features two rear facing camera-style holes. As you can see in the above image, the purported iPhone 5 part looks an awful lot like the iPhone 4 - suggesting that the fourth and fifth generation iPhone will share a similar design. Furthermore, because the panel is white, the images suggests that, like the iPhone 4, the fifth generation handset will be available in both black and white. Interestingly, the panel features two rear facing camera-style holes - one of which presumably houses a relocated flash. This was also suggested by a leaked iPhone 5 case, the images of which hit the Web a couple of weeks ago. Obviously, we have no idea whether this is a genuine iPhone 5 part, and the source of the image - Apple.pro - isn't sure, either. However, the photograph itself is the second image to suggest that the fifth generation iPhone will feature a relocated flash unit, which is interesting. We'll keep you posted.
