The new iPhone will be huge for Apple this fall.

Samsung’s Galaxy S III has gotten off to a great start, and according to one company executive, it has already sold 10 million units.

Reuters: Apple’s New iPhone Will Get Smaller Dock Connector To Make Room For Headphone Jack

You could soon be buying these cases for your new iPhone.

We already know that Chinese manufacturers are hard at work producing all kinds of cases for Apple’s new iPhone, a device which isn’t expected to make its public debut for at least another three months. And despite plenty of competition, it seems some of them are more than happy to hand over the specifications they’re using for their products.

According to the drawing you see above, some manufacturers are expecting the sixth-generation iPhone to measure just 7.9mm thin, 58.6mm wide, and 123.8mm tall. That’s 1.4mm thinner and 8.6mm taller than the iPhone 4S.

Purported iPhone 5 SIM Tray Crushes Our Dreams Of A Liquidmetal iPhone

Is this really an iPhone 5 SIM tray, or did someone hit the wrong key?
