The leaks to this point, appear accurate, as confirmed by the new images at iMore (which we realize still fall into the "rumor" category). It's visually apparent: the iPhone 5 is nearly identical in design to the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, with the major visible differences a stretched 4-inch display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, a metallic plate across most the back, a smaller dock connector that will be featured across Apple's device line, and a relocated headset jack on the bottom of the device.
These are all consistent with the rumors. Also visible in the leaked image of an AT&T case are the six rows of icons in the user interface. That also matches the earlier reports of a 1,344 x 640 resolution with six rows of app icons.
here; these new leaks don't start a new rumor, but instead seem to confirm the old ones.
These images only confirm the prior "visual" rumors. There are plenty more that won't be visually apparent.
They include: 4G LTE support, a larger battery, an upgraded processor (perhaps even quad-core), in-cell touch panels (which enable Apple to make the screen thinner), and still more.
All of these rumors will either be confirmed - or not - on Sept. 12.
