Retailer Lists Supposed iPhone 5 Cases

Although no official statements were released by Apple on the supposed iPhone 5, cases are reportedly already available for the device.

A number of cases for the iPhone 5 have started to emerge on TVC-Mall, which is based in Shenzhen, China. The cases are supposedly designed for the next-generation iPhone of Apple. The cases also feature a cut-out for the smaller dock connector of the iPhone 5.

However it should be noted that a notice was also posted that since the iPhone 5 has not yet been introduced by Apple, there are no guarantees that the products are designed for it. Customers are advised to contact customer service representatives for any questions that they may have on the supposed case for the iPhone 5.

It can be recalled that prior to the release of the iPhone 4S, a number of cases also emerged which were supposedly designed for the unreleased device. The cases had some features that were not found on the device including a reported curved back and mute switch.

A number of case manufacturers reportedly lost a good amount of money after they manufactured cases basing on unconfirmed reports on the design of the device. Some of the cases were designed for a slimmer and wider iPhone, which did not materialize. However some were able to create solid sales from early buyers even as a number of manufacturers had to wait for a number of weeks or months before they were able to cash in since they waited for the official release of the device.

Since the iPhone 4S was introduced and made available in the market last October, some industry watchers are anticipating a fall release of the upcoming iPhone 5.

It remains to be seen if these supposed cases for the iPhone 5 will be usable once the device is finally released into the market.
