We're not sure if it's a result of some hard information or simply an educated guess, but it looks like the first next-gen iPhone
cases (or would-be cases) are now starting to find their way before a camera. The most convincing of those comes courtesy of Hardmac
, which received the image above from one of its contacts in China -- a quick search of the model name also reveals the manufacturer, Shenzhen Soonleader Electronic Co, and a few more pics (check them out after the break). As you can see, it has all the right curves, a larger opening for a flash and, if you look really closely, you can see the necessary spaces for the new side buttons. Like we said, this could well just be a case of a manufacturer looking to get a jump start, or it could be... something more.
