"If these images are authentic—and we have every reason to believe that they are—then the iPhone 5 is a radical evolution of the iPhone concept," Mobile Fun writes.   (

(Newser) – The next iPhone will be a much more radical departure from the iPhone 4 than Apple-watchers are expecting, according to Mobile Fun. The blog says it has received what it believes are genuine blueprints for the iPhone 5. The new phone, widely expected to be released in September, will have a larger, edge-to-edge screen, a curved rear panel, and a hole in the back which could be the new location for the device's antenna, the blog says.

The computer-generated drawings are from a Chinese case manufacturer, and other phone blogs suspect that the images are either fakes or rejected prototypes. "We received a reliable tip that this is not what the iPhone 5 will look like," MacRumors writes. "As well, several other credible news outlets have said that the iPhone 5 will "look largely similar to the current iPhone 4."
