Check out the tiny dock connector and new speaker grills.

We’re getting to the stage where we could almost build a complete iPhone 5 out of all the parts leaks that have surfaced in recent weeks.

This Is What The Front Assembly Of The Next iPhone Looks Like Disassembled

Another morning, another big leak in next-generation iPhone components.

This morning, that leak comes to us from iColorOS, which shows pretty much the entire front assembly of the iPhone 5, including the glass display, internal sensors, home button, and volume control… as well as a new protective shielding that separates the back of the iPhone’s display from the rest of the internal components.

In addition, the iColorOS photos — which are very well done — clearly show a number of other iPhone 5 parts we’ve seen popping up over the last couple weeks, such as the new nano-SIM tray.

There’s no doubt about it: this is what the next iPhone is going to look like, friends.

Everyone is hoping that the next generation iPhone will be unveiled with significant design changes. Maybe an aluminum backing, a bigger screen, or even a haptic home button will make an appearance on a redesigned iPhone. Details are scant on what the “iPhone 5’ will look like, but if these newest leaks are to be believed it looks like the next iPhone will still have a home button.

New part leaks were spotted today on TVC Mall that show black and white home buttons for the iPhone 5. At first glance the buttons look like those found on the newest iPhone 4S, but closer inspection shows a few differences.
