Those blurry images of mysterious iPhone 5 prototypes were mostly spot on. Apple's 6th-generation handset is indeed slimmer and taller than its predecessor. Sheathed in an aluminum and glass exterior, the new iPhone is 7.6 millimeters thick, out-slimming the Huawei Ascend P1 by 0.09 millimeters--not that you'd notice. The iPhone 5 weighs 112 grams (3.95 ounces) and is 18% thinner and 20% lighter than the iPhone 4S.
