Fully assembled iPhone 5 leaked, most detailed insight yet [Video]

Photographs of an iPhone 5 assembled from leaked parts have been revealed

New images have emerged showing what could be a fully assembled iPhone 5. Many experts are calling the photos the most detailed, authentic-looking images of the upcoming iPhone we've seen.

Japanese repair shop iLab Factory published the photographs on its site on Sunday, allegedly unveiling the body of Apple's sixth-generation iPhone, which has been fully assembled from leaked parts from Chinese factories.

9to5Mac's Mark Gurman first spotted the photos, which match previous leaks and rumours, showing a device with a taller body, larger display, smaller dock connector, and a two-tone metal back. Also published were photos of the home button, the volume keys, and more.

The leaked iPhone appears to have a thinner profile and bevelled edges. It also looks like the cameras and speakers may have been improved, and the front-facing camera is once again moved to the centre of the iPhone. The headphone jack has also been relocated to the bottom of the device.

Japanese blog Macotakara has also released a hands on video of what appears to be the same assembled iPhone.

Meanwhile, a Chinese accessories maker has added 66 cases to its iPhone 5 product range, all of which look as though they would fit the taller, thinner model shown in the leaked photographs.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
