iPhone 5 render

Unsurprisingly, there have been a lot of rumors surrounding the iPhone 5 as of late, with many focusing on whether or not Apple will increase the handset's screen size. Today more evidence of an increase has seemingly emerged via iDealsChina, the same source of a previous iPhone 5 display leak. As you can see, the renders look exactly like an iPhone 4, save for the fact that there's a bit less bezel on the face of phone. The site says that the drawings were just sent over to them and are used to create various kinds of cases for a device.

When the iPhone 5 bezel leaked out a few weeks ago, some folks called the authenticity of the image into question. As MacRumors points out, though, iDeals China has been the source of a few correct leaks in the past, too. Considering how long Apple has stuck with a 3.5-inch display, it makes sense that they'd at least think about creating an iPhone with a 3.75 or 4-inch screen, especially in the face of 4.5-inch Android phones. What do you all make of these leaked images? Are they the real deal?
