Seidio rolls out iPhone 5 cases ahead of Apple event

The cases appear to show a larger iPhone, and they come with or without a metal kickstand.

The iPhone 5 still hasn't been officially announced, but CNET is already seeing some of the first new iPhone cases that will be hitting the market this month.

Seidio plans to announce its line of cases for the new iPhone later today, but I got an early peek at the design.

Tune in today starting at 9 a.m. PT for our Apple iPhone event live blog.

The company will be unveiling a $10 screen guard and three lines of cases for the phone, including two lines that come with an optional metal kickstand and retail from $29.95 to $54.95.

While the images seem to indicate a larger screen on the new iPhone, all the information from the company is notably void of any dimensions or other specifics about the phone that will actually fit into the cases. Guess we'll just have to wait a few more minutes for the big reveal.
