French site Nowhereelse.fr recently posted photos of the rear shell of the next iPhone and even came up with some overlays and iPhone 5 comparison photos.

Now a report by Laptop claims that the leaks are evidence that the smartphone will come with fingerprint-scanning functions.

The site writes that a redesigned metal spacer cushion near the Home button could house “additional components.”

That wouldn’t seem far from reality if the iPhone 5S brings an upgraded Home button.

A recent report by KGI Securities analyst Ming-chi Kuo stated that Apple could implement a convex Home button that would house a fingerprint reader.
