4-Inch iPhone 5 Backplate Gets Caught On Video This Time

By Sam Gibbs on at

That alleged aluminium iPhone 5 backplate that got snapped out-in-the-wild with a smaller dock connector last month has been caught on video this time, and it certainly looks plausible.

It doesn't really show us anything new that the photos didn't, but it's good to see it paired-up and compared with an iPhone 4S. The backplate seems to have a unibody design integrating the antennae band. If this is real, let's hope Apple's sorted the death grip and interference issues once and for all.

I can't say I was overly enamoured with the switch to glass for the iPhone 4/4S's back -- nothing has quite beaten the look of the original 2G iPhone for me -- so a return to an aluminium back gets the thumbs up from me, if this is real of course. [ETradeSupply via CydiaBlog via Apple Insider]
