'iPhone 5' Video: Allegedly Leaked Component Gives Clues To Apple's Next Handset?

Apple's iPhone 5 may be two-toned after all. A new video from mobile parts seller ETrade Supply made waves Thursday for featuring the same alleged iPhone 5 frame 9to5Mac got its hands on recently.

The video comparison of the new iPhone part with an iPhone 4S advances the series of next-gen rumors that have spread like wildfire as the countdown for Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference on June 11 continues.

(See the alleged iPhone 5 part in the video above.)

Providing a more advanced, 360-degree view of the alleged iPhone 5 part, the handler in the video shows off the placement of the model's relocated earbud jack and tiny charging port. Most apparent though, is the iPhone part's length since it is much longer, and slightly thinner, than the iPhone 4S. This size could potentially provide the space for a larger, 4-inch screen.

What's also interesting, as the handler points out, is that the new iPhone part appears to combine both the metal frame and back pane of the iPhone. In earlier generations, these parts were separate.

It's not likely Apple will unveil the iPhone 5 until the fall -- fingers crossed for September -- so until then, iPhone fanatics will have to make due with iPhone 5 mock-ups and leaks.
