Case-Mate accidently leaks iPhone 5 case - 4S model confirmed?

Case-mate, the popular accessory maker has “accidently” leaked images of some cases that are said to be for the elusive iPhone 5.

What’s curious though is that in one of the two images that the company accidently hosted on their website, it asks whether the user is interested in a ‘iPhone 5’ or ‘iPhone 4S’ case which essentially confirms that there will be two models released by Apple.

The cases posted appear to have a curved silver aluminum back which suggests that either the iPhone 5 or 4S will have a similar looking back case of that of the iPad 2.

A Case-Mate source was quoted as saying “From our inside resources, it appears that Apple will be indeed launching both an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4S in early October. The speculation indicates that the iPhone 4S will feature the same form factor as the iPhone 4 but will be upgraded with the latest technology, including the A5 dual-core processor and 8 mega-pixel camera.”

The iPhone 5 has been rumoured for an October release and only a few days ago, the CEO of Orange, the telecoms giant spilled the beans as he said if he believes what he hears, the next generation iPhone will be out by 15th October on Orange. Being a CEO, it’s likely he got his information from an Apple insider which deems his information somewhat reliable.

Those images look just like an ipod touch in a case too...

Almost, not quite, all iPod Touches this far as the on/off button to the left rather than the right and the headphone connector is at the bottom and not the top

I am pretty sick of how desperately Apple tries to get attentions these days and all these "accidental" leaks.

This has nothing to do with Apple, it's not their fault if every blog/newsite wants to post every speculation and rumour no matter how silly, unlikley or vague they are. Case mate are just trying to jump on the Apple hype machine

i said the same weeks ago and my message was delete.

OR! they are saying like iPhone 5/ 4S model. May be they are not sure what the name will be given to the new model so they have put on 5/ 4S ! May be?

This company just got a load of free advertising by posting some made up images of the next iPhone, and then everyone instantly shouting about what the back of a phone will look like!

Anyone even care about what a phone does anymore?

Indeed. I see Neowin and the like bought it hook line and sinker. Bravo to their marking department, bravo.

It's casemate, they aren't some dodgy third party case manufacturer. They have possibly the biggest range of high quality cases for numerous phones so I doubt they'd ruin their cred for a slight bump in site visits.

Author, did you even read the notification paragraph? It says... "The guessing game continues whether Apple will unveil the iPhone 5 OR the iPhone 4S"

Meaning that no one knows WHICH one is coming.

and no one knows whether iPhone 5 (if it is) will be slimmer and bigger

We've seen cases leak previously and appear to be real in previous releases, so (select) case manufacturers definatley get phone dimenions before the phone is announced. What case mate are saying is they have no idea what name the phone will be marketed as..
