9to5Mac is claiming to have gone live with the first shots of what appears to be the casing for iPhone 5, showing a more radical redesign than iPhone 4S.

The look for the new handset seems to show a metal unibody on both black and white models, similar to that found on recent Macbook models.

It’ll also come with a smaller dock connector, a repositioned headphone jack at the bottom of the phone akin to an iPod Touch and an opening between the camera and flash, suggesting a repositioning of the second mic.

The speaker grills have also been redesigned for the phone.

9to5Mac reckons iPhone 5 will launch in autumn alongside the release of iOS6.
