Alleged iPhone 5S leaks show display, logic board

More alleged iPhone 5S parts have leaked, as photos from Japanese part vendor Moumantai and U.S. repair shop iHeart Repair show what appear to be a display assembly and logic board for Appleā€™s new device. As expected, the parts look very similar to iPhone 5 parts, with generally the same proportions. However, a report notes the display assembly has both a horizontal and vertical flex cable connector, which appear to align with the logic board.

These parts differ slightly from those on the iPhone 5: the alleged 5S logic board has a somewhat more slender profile, as well as a more rounded top and bottom, which collectively could make a little extra room for a battery or other components inside a same-sized chassis. It also appears to have a spot for a larger A-series processor. [via MacRumors]
