Rumor: First Fully Assembled iPhone 5?

The Verge is running an article with some photos from iLab Factory that reports to show what the fully assembled next generation iPhone from Apple could look like.

We are assuming that the next generation iPhone will be called ‘iPhone 5’.  We expected last year’s iPhone, the ‘4S’ to be the ‘5’, however, once we found out that the next iPhone would ‘evolutionary’ rather than ‘revolutionary’, well, we all knew that the ‘next next’ iPhone would be the iPhone 5.

So here it is, the latest rumor de jour: the iPhone 5.  I really like the form factor of the iPhone 4/4S/5 over the previous generation iPhones.  I also like the idea of the aluminum back plate as I’ll be much less worried about breaking it.  I’m even OK with the taller unit to accommodate a 4-inch screen.  I’m just not a fan of the two tone color scheme; black with a brushed metal.  I think I’d like to continue to see the iPhone back places all white or all black.
