Since long we have been hearing about iPhone 5 to feature new hardware and software but we have had no proof until now. Below are a few snapshots of the A5 processor and the 1430 mAH battery.
It is not an iPad 2 chip, since it looks rather different, as you can see in the iFixit teardown pictures below. It bears some resemblance to the current chipset layout in the iPhone 4, but is different than the A4 as well.
These pictures have given more credibility to the rumors about new generation iDevice featuring A5 processor. The battle between smartphone companies this year is going to be a fierce one and it would be interesting to see which of them comes out victorious.
