In a peculiar move, accessory maker Case-Mate briefly posted renderings of a new line of cases for the Apple’s next iPhone, which has not yet been announced by the company.

Included in the renderings were depictions of Apple’s next device, which was shown as having a rounded aluminum backing, similar to the iPad 2′s design.

The accessory gallery was pulled down shortly after its discovery, BGR reports. In its place, the old gallery page redirects to a page where users can sign up to be notified when Case-Mate will be providing cases for the new device, be it an “iPhone 5″ or “iPhone 4S.”

A Case-Mate spokeswoman declined to comment on the gallery.
