iPad, iPad Mini, and iPhone 5 Cases Compared to an iPhone 4S
MacRumors reader Michael Rou, who managed to obtain both a pre-production iPhone 5 case and a pre-production iPad mini case, posted the comparison photos on Flickr. The cases design is base on the recently leaked images and specifications coming out of Foxconn factories. The cases were produced by one of the case manufacturers ahead of the rumored devices launches. Apple is expected to introduce the new iPhone on September 12th at a special media event. The iPad mini is rumored to be launched in October.
The photo does a great job showing the relative sizes of the various devices. The largest case in the back shows the size of the current 3rd Generation iPad. That iPad houses a 9.7" diagonal display. The next smaller size case is for the rumored "iPad mini". The smaller iPad is believed to have a 7.85" screen with a smaller surrounding bezel while retaining the same aspect ratio and resolution (1024x768) of the iPad 2. Rou notes that the iPad mini headphone jack is positioned at the top of the case.
Finally, there is the rumored iPhone 5 case. The iPhone 5 is believed to have 4" diagonal screen. The iPhone 5 is expected to be taller but not wider than the current iPhone 4S which is also pictured above.
