iPhone 5 rumors: leaked front panel hints at centered FaceTime camera

Now reports state that a leaked image of the device’s front panel shows a centered FaceTime camera located above the earpiece.

With current models, the camera is positioned on the left of the earpiece.

The picture, which shows two front panels, one black and one white, was published on Monday by Taiwanese website Apple.pro.

The white panel features a small black window to the left of the earpiece which is apparently the proximity sensor.

In addition, the pics seem to confirm the rumored 16:9 aspect ratio, which is connected to rumors of a larger 4-inch screen.

Such images indicate that Apple has begun producing the iPhone 5 which is rumored to be available sometime in October.
