Friday saw the emergence of the newest supposed iPhone 5S components, including a front camera, home button, and vibrating motor, according to Letem Svetem Applem. The images cannot be fully verified as components in a future iPhone, but the report says that, due to the appearance of country-specific serial numbers, it appears likely that the so-called "iPhone 5S" will launch at the same time in the Czech Republic that it will in other countries.
The report presumes that a Czech Republic launch will come in the first wave immediately after the next iPhone launches in the United States and other first-tier markets.
The home button shown off in the pictures is markedly different from another alleged home button that showed up in March. That March report, though, also showed a supposed "iPhone 5S" vibrating motor, and that component looks similar to the one that appeared on Friday.
The motor appears to have a dual-head vibrating component. A report in April posited that the dual-head design of a similar part leaked then suggested that the component was from a low-cost iPhone. In the iPhone 5, Apple used a single-head rotational vibration motor with a counterweight.
Over the past few months, images of supposed iPhone components have gone from an intermittent trickle to a steady stream. As the component images have increased, so too have the rumors surrounding the as yet unannounced device.
Speculation still persists that Apple might integrate fingerprint scanning as a security measure for the next iPhone, though that rumor appears to have lost steam as a launch approaches. Another piece of speculation, based on the appearance of multi-colored SIM trays, has Apple launching the next iPhone in an array of color options.
