Rumours indicate that Apple is planning on releasing an iMac with a radically new case design.

Photos found in a thread on the forum of Chinese site WeiPhone.com allegedly show the new ‘redesigned’ model of Apple’s iMac line.

The post implies that the new iMac will have a thinner profile with a new shell design that’s curved like a water droplet rather than squared off.

The poster says that the iMac will be announced in the next month, likely on Oct 23rd – when Apple is expected to announce the iPad Mini.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antennas, fans, and a hard drive can all be seen in the leaked photos. The poster also reaffirmed an earlier claim that the new iMac display would be attacked to the protective cover glass rather than a separate display assembly.

“The new iMac is using a special ”glue” to glue the display to the frame and is facing very strict quality control,” read another post by the same user.

We’ll find out if all this is actually true on October 23rd.
