Is this an iPhone 5 blueprint?

A hard-copy leak appears to lend more credence to the rumor of a new iPhone with a 4-inch screen.

Is this a sketch of the new iPhone, or a prototype never meant to see the light of day? cydiablog

When was the last time a schematic drawing for one of the most anticipated devices in the world showed up in your mailbox? The folks at cydiablog claim the answer in their case is yesterday.

That's when an actual hard-copy blueprint purporting to show the details of the upcoming iPhone 5 arrived, complete with a cute little Apple logo in the corner.

There are probably more reasons to doubt the authenticity of this leak than to trust it, but 9to5Mac compared the drawings and another recent leak and found some overlap, particularly in the screen size (the much-rumored 4-inch display rides again!) and repositioned FaceTime camera.
