Did Case-Mate Leak The New iPhone 5 Design?

This morning, the iPhone case company “Case-Mate,” and shortly after “Pocket-Now” both published photos on their respective websites with different case designs for the new iPhone 5. Not too long after, the photos were taken down, but not before other sites caught wind of the images and grabbed them while they had the chance.

As you may have already heard and come to expect, the rumors have been that the new iPhone 5 will be thinner and lighter than the previous models. That being said, these new photos also show some changes to the shape and look of the phone. From the looks of it, the new model will have tapered edges and have an aluminum back (contrary to what some people speculated, but in line with others).

The new iPhone is expected to hit the shelves in October, but for now, get your first look at what is likely to be the new look of the iPhone. More photos below.
