Apple is going to introduce the iPhone 5S and 5C in less than two hours, and the last-minute leaks are coming in fast. It looks like there could be a leather case announced for the 5S today, according to packaging that has leaked out of China.

The design of the packaging is similar to that already found in the Apple Store. The back sleeve notes that the case is made from “natural aniline leather,” which suggest that it could be something like a Smart Cover. Compatibility is said to be with the iPhone 5 and 5S, which lines up with expectations that the 5S’s physical dimensions won’t any different from its predecessor.

iPhone 5S boxes have already leaked, and the styling of the name here matches up with what has already been seen. A leather case could help reinforce the 5S as Apple’s premium phone.

We’ll have live updates during today’s keynote. Stay tuned.
