Photo Stream beta icon shows what the iPhone 5 may look like

After a number of rumored iPhone 5 parts surfaced these past few weeks, a new photo was leaked recently that could reveal what the fifth-generation iPhone may look like. This time around, the image was found in Apple’s latest Photo Stream beta.

The photo was found by 9 to 5 Mac, and what’s interesting about it is it doesn’t resemble any of the iPhone designs found on the web. The display seems bigger and it suggests that the new Apple smartphone will feature an edge-to-edge screen, as it was rumored.

The report from the Apple news site said, “Apple’s latest Photo Stream beta has an interesting icon that seems to look like the rumored iPhone 5s with extended screen and elongated home button (we count 4 pixels by 2 pixels – close up below the fold). What do you think? Coincidence?”

From the mockups made by the website, one followed the recent report that the new iPhone has a 3.7-inch touch screen with an elongated home button. The button was made smaller to accommodate the bigger screen. The other mockup shows an iPhone that has the same overall size but sports a larger screen that would be “nearly the size of the Galaxy S Line.”

We could be looking at a concept icon in the beta version of the Photo Stream, which could have nothing to do with the real design of the iPhone 5. We’ll have to wait for Apple to make its official announcement regarding its upcoming smartphone.
