The Internet is buzzing with news that images of Apple's next-gen iPhone have been leaked. The photos reveal white and black versions of the phone's backplate, large portions of which are made of metal. They depict a lengthened body, smaller dock connector port and repositioned earphone jack (it's now found on the bottom corner of the device), plus a unibody construction in which the metal antenna band is molded into the metal backplate. Additionally, there's a new perforated speaker design and what appears to be an opening for a second microphone between the camera lens and LED flash. Additional images of the frame indicate that this new longer iPhone will have the same width as the current 4 and 4S models, with a taller screen featuring the same width and measuring diagonally 3.999 inches with a 1136 x 640 resolution. The next-to-last photo in the series showcases the phone's front glass, revealing that the FaceTime camera is now found centered above the earpiece. Rumors have the next iPhone launching alongside iOS6 sometime in the fall. via: 9to5Mac
