iPhone 5 Gets Spotted in the Wild? [Photo]

A 9to5Mac tipster managed to snap a picture of what they believe may be the iPhone 5 being used by an Apple employee on the way home from work., according to a report released moments ago.

The tipster was able to get a very good look at the device but unable to snap a picture to "do it justice". After returning home and seeing the green cases photos posted online yesterday he determined that it was likely a legitimate device.

"Almost EVO-like" in screen size, this iPhone also appears thinner than the current iPhone 4 but also wider. The edges are rounded metal like the edges of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 but could still function as an antenna. The back is a curved/tapered glass or plastic. He couldn't tell but if he had to guess he'd say glass. He said it looked too amazing to be built by anyone besides Apple (fanboy!).

The man using the device was apparently making an effort to hide what he had. Apple does do real world testing of their upcoming devices as the iPhone 4 leak is evidence of.

Take a look at the photo and let us know your thoughts!

Oh my god guys!! I see someone playing cut the rope on his iphone 3Gs!! Let's take a picture and say that its the iphone 5 because the quality is crappy. They'll post anything on iclarified! These rumors are getting more fake each day.

this is obviously a 3GS.. the "slot" above is just a reflection on the curved surface and that's where the SIM slot was on the 3GS anyway. The dead give away is the volume control.. Apple would not go back to the 1 button teeter totter thing on the 5 after going separate on the 4, besides if you remember they took great lengths to conceal the appearance of the 4 by concealing it in a case that almost looked like a 3GS.. so I'm sure they would have done the same here.

My thoughts exactly, would have been quite unlike apple to do their real world testing carelessly.
