We've seen this rumored two-tone, elongated unibody design so many times that it'll be surprising if the next iPhone doesn't look like this. And now we have even more possible evidence that this really is the next iPhone: the leaked parts that popped up on Friday fit perfectly inside the leaked iPhone body that's been floating around.

I'm no math genius but I do know what one plus one equals and if assembling rumored parts into a rumored case works out exactly as a real production model is supposed to... well then that's pretty darn convenient! Or I guess perhaps a very random coincidence? Either way, here's what iResq, the folks who put this iPhone together, have to say:

We were able to fit the docking port and headphone jack assembly that we showed you on Friday into the new iPhone's frame/back casing. The docking port and headphone jack assembly seemed to fit perfectly inside of the frame. One of our technicians was even able to screw the assembly into the pre-aligned screw holes inside of the frame. All of the threading and screw holes lined up perfectly with the screw holes in then docking port/headphone jack assembly.

As you can see, the iPhone above is the one we've seen everywhere complete with new dock connector port, bottom headphone jack, drilled holes and lengthened body. You know it just as well as the iPhone 4S at this point. Okay, you don't? Here's what a more complete version looks like:

Again, we don't know for sure if this is truly the next iPhone (and we won't find out for sure until September 12th) but the smoke is getting so thick on this design that it's very probably the fire. Or a flame. Or at least a burning log. Check out more pictures at iResq. [iResq]

If this all turns out to be Apple's doing by releasing fake parts and such, it's going to be the greatest prank pulled in tech. And I hope for Apple's sake that it is. Cause they're going to need an ace hidden really far up their sleeves in order to surprise the tech world at this point.
