We’re all probably getting sick of iPhone 5 case leaks at this point, but this is a juicy one. Earlier this morning, a Case-Mate product page briefly bubbled up on the official web site showing six different case designs for the next iPhone. If you blinked, you missed it, though. It’s now gone.

Called the iPhone 5 Barely There Brushed Aluminum Case, the case designs not only seemingly confirm rumors that the new iPhone will have a totally new body that will be thinner and lighter, but it will also have the iPad 2’s aluminum back, tapered edges and button design.

All in all, some attractive cases. I just wish we could see the iPhone 5 that these go into. Hey, Case-Mate! Turn your renders around!

    yeah buddy!!

    The design of the iPhone 5 has been a given for quite some time now. Obviously Apple’s not keeping the glass back and obviously it won’t be plastic like the iPhone 3G[s]. A company that constantly looks forward, rarely turns back.

    omg yes.

  4. IamEzio says:

    what about the front of the device ? :(

    ” I just wish we could see the iPhone 5 that these go into.”    You mean the iPhone 5 that goes into these?

  6. Nathan Schroeder says:

    Looks like around the dock connector on the back there is a black plastic space for the antennas like on iPad 3G’s. Looking good.

  7. Montleewireless says:

    I honestly believe the next iPhone with design cues from the iPad 2 makes most sense. It’s not broke so why fix it?

  8. Jose Sanchez says:

    I think it’s going to look extremely similar to the iPad 2. 

  9. Andy Mattingly says:

    if you look at the one iphone case you can see the silent switch on the right side not the left!

  10. Adrian Figueroa says:

    I highly doubt that is the phone it could be the iPod touch. There is no mute button above the volume buttons so idk how it could possibly be the iPhone

  11. prof_peabody says:

    These guys also firmly and confidently predict that the iPhone 5 will also have “wireless charging,” so I wouldn’t put too much stock in what they say.  

  12. MacGoo says:

    Lookin’ like the iPad? Lookin’ good. Seriously, Apple LOVES continuity of design, so this is not a surprise, although it IS welcome.

    Meh, these cases are not making me want iphone 5 any faster…

    unbelievable it I just got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use http://lu2su.net/h5c

    Uy que feo!

  19. CharliK says:

    I can’t help but wonder if this is false info put out to catch who has been leaking deets

  20. capope says:

    Your first half of sentence sums up where I am on the iPhone5 {We’re all probably getting sick of iPhone 5 case leaks at this point}….

  21. CharliK says:

    And why is it so obvious?

  22. Demonstr8r says:

    Based on what little we see in the pictures, I say iPhone 4 aesthetics are much higher quality. Back to plastic buttons? No thanks. I sure hope this was false information planted to catch the leaks.

  24. TylerHoj says:

    Yeah, what are we cavemen here or something, plastic buttons?…jeesh…they should have diamond buttons. 

  25. Jeff Schueler says:

    I totally agree, the iPhone 4 is much prettier than any of these rumored iPad form factors we have been seeing. If the iP5 resembles an iPad, then by default it will resemble the 1st generation iPhone. That would be regressive.

  26. Kevin says:

    I hope those aren’t the volume up and down buttons. I have a iPhone 3GS and I hate the buttons, their all loose and just ugly. The iPhone 4 buttons are WAY more attractive. I hope the iPhone 5 has buttons like the iPhone 4 but different some how.  

  27. Chris Killen says:

    we shouldn’t need buttons. Apple should’ve invented mind control techniques for this phone by now.

  28. Janar1988 says:

    notice that the silent rocker is missing…that’s definitely not an iphone 5..its most probably the 5th gen ipod touch…

  29. Chris Killen says:

    the device at the bottom to the very left…you can see a little rocker…rockin’ out there ;)
