We’re just hours away of putting the rumors and speculation to bed, but that leaves plenty of time left for companies to try to get in on the action. Next up to the trough: Hard Candy Cases. The case maker has posted images of its upcoming iPhone 5 cases, which include a render of Apple’s supposed iPhone 5. The device can be seen above with a wider home button, a slightly different shape and a larger edge-to-edge display that frames a screenshot of iOS 3.0 quite nicely. The case renders are similar to earlier pictures of iPhone 5 cases published by Case-Mate, and those were quickly removed from the manufacturer’s site after we posted them here on BGR. Is this what the iPhone 5 will look like? We’ll all find out in just over two hours.

Thanks, Chris
