Is This the iPhone 5’s Back Casing?

MacPost has published some rather unexciting images of what it claims is the back covering for the fifth generation iPhone. The image shows a white cover that seems to match the iPhone 4’s back cover except for one interesting detail:

The codename ‘N94′ marked on cover clearly indicates that it is a fifth-generation iPhone part. The front cover, however, is labeled “EVT2″ (Engineering Verification Testing) with date “07-June-2011″, marking it as early development prototype.

Few months back, 9to5Mac first found references to “N94″ and “N93” while digging around in iOS 5.0 SDK, suggesting that these are internal code names for two unreleased iPhone models (probably for iPhone 5 GSM and CDMA model).

With two versions of the iPhone rumored to be due this fall—an iPhone 5 and a reworked iPhone 4—it’s unclear which phone this part would be destined for. We’re hoping that the iPhone 5 gets a complete new look, so we’re rooting for this as an iPhone 4 “Part II” casing.
