It's iPhone 5 rumor season! And while we have no reason to think that these rumored white iPhone 5 pictures at MIC Gadget are any more—or less—legitimate than the rounded-back iPhone 5 mockup that emerged last week, it certainly lines up with what the rumor mill has churned out so far.

The wider screen? Sure, it could be Photoshopped. But we've been hearing about an edge-to-edge display for some time now. And the similarity to the iPhone 4—there's a wider screen and the sensor's in a slightly different place, but otherwise they're pretty close—indicates that it could be one of those iPhone 4S prototypes that Apple's reportedly been seeding to devs.

Whether that ends up being the final design of iPhone 5 or a bridge prototype device remains to be seen. But again: it's that time of year. And the iPhone rumor floodgate has only opened a crack. [MIC Gadget via MacRumors]

DISCUSSION

Still no 16:9 aspect. Sad. Not that I was going to buy one anyway, it's just odd to see such a design/media-oriented company/product ignore one of the big changes in displays of the last several decades and still produce products that don't even seem to inch towards wide screen ratios.
