Fake for two reasons: 1. The screws are standard posi screws and Apple use their own secure screws, why would they go back to screws that people can easily remove. 2. The earphone jack on this phone is obviously made of plastic and Apple ALWAYS make the jacks out of metal so the headphones don't damage the port when inserting them. Would be a stupid design decision. Apple and other companies have been known to release fakes into the wild to throw people off the scent.

Yeah that's right
Leggoman - September 3, 2012 at 10:56pm
And i wont have the next. The 3gs was a great phone, the 4 was not much of an upgrade at all bad signal and sound. And now the 4s well what a bag of crap that is, battery is really bad. Siri don't work in the uk. Fast? Oh is it can you really tell its faster? We will get told how great the new iphone is and when you get it you will see that its just as bad as the others FA
Leggoman - September 3, 2012 at 10:49pm
If its the real deal, its shit. Iv had three iphones now 3gs the 4 and now the 4s
MrLoyyy - September 3, 2012 at 8:40pm
It's a dummy till you turn it on
Taha - September 2, 2012 at 9:19am
So a company like apple with exerience of loosing an iphone in the bar and sending commandos to recover that iphone, Gave away an iphone to a bumper making company? and asked them not to turn it on? and this company to show it to everyone knowing that apple will come after them in few hours and sue them a billion$? very smart gsm Israel
typeface - September 2, 2012 at 8:43am
the typeface on the back is not the same font used for the real iphones and the idevices in general. usually, when someone tried to knockoff an apple product, it's the area that they fail to copy.
Hemanth - September 2, 2012 at 8:25am
Guys the sleep/power button is not there and this is a dummy phone don't worry guys 8 months back apple survey about next generation I phone what we are expecting from our view but we hope we get a new design with lot of new features
foe - September 2, 2012 at 8:12am
It's an dummy. Look at 0:43. The Earphonejack is plastic!
Ricky - September 2, 2012 at 7:01am
New iPhone looks so cool!!!!!!!!I cannot wait!!!!!! I don't care if there are no improvements over 4S because iPhone is the best phone out there and there is not a single phone that comes close!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!! - September 2, 2012 at 7:41am
*sigh* - September 2, 2012 at 11:45am
Bad troll is bad.
Noman - September 2, 2012 at 6:40am
Apple is a company who firstly invents something and then keeps selling long long time... like the macs there havent been huge new thing since Retina plus the designs of the products havent been changed for ages. Compare MBP, iMac and Mac PRO... when did you see dramaticly big change in theirs design? The thing they do is improve their products from year to another but Apple never updated their products looks like they did with iPhone from v1 to 4 but i guess now they happy with the result and will keep it for while now... only making small adjustment.
Noman - September 2, 2012 at 6:48am
The point been in the fact that for those who are waiting for something totally new they will be dissapointed for sure.
Gus - September 2, 2012 at 6:15am
Hummm. A few months ago everybody were expecting the iPhone 5 and got a 4s... Now is the same thing... I just wait for the keynote and get it when is unlock from factory, all the mockups, copies or ideas and even the Chinese clon are just apple ways to marketing just wait a few days and get the real one
Djdjek - September 2, 2012 at 5:17am
Fake or not, I like the look of the device. Simple and elegant.
Morfeo104 - September 2, 2012 at 4:50am
Probably is a fake... But if it is the real didnt really make an effort to do squat with the design...if its just another upgrade in camera and processor chip like they did with the ipad...then that really sucks!!! Apple is a company which prides itself in killing the competition when it comes to unique products...but then again...those products were the result of steve jobs being steve jobs= a bunch of losers who do what every other company is doing and just keep mAking the same product with one or two upgrades... I will stay with my iphone 4 or maybe just upgrade to a sAmsung galaxy 3
Raul - September 2, 2012 at 3:51am
Fake.. on the back says Model A1303. A1303 corresponds to theserie of iPhone 3GS

Arvin Patel - September 2, 2012 at 12:03am
THis is fake.... if this is iphone 5,, Apple is sinking in hell
Ali - September 2, 2012 at 12:04am
Well this is the overall look of the new iphone
Mahmoud - September 2, 2012 at 12:02am
Fake fake fake
Lee - September 1, 2012 at 9:37pm
iPhone 5 just look like iPhone 4/s good job apple
Buto - September 1, 2012 at 9:17pm
Yes its real! I just called my friend that works at Apple HQ in Cupertino And she said that it is real! Lol i dont like the taller design but I will still buy it.
Ali - September 1, 2012 at 9:18pm
Buto - September 1, 2012 at 9:20pm
I also talked to Tim cook so now you have to believe me!
Buto(real) - September 1, 2012 at 9:27pm
Lol thanks for copying my name. Cant wait to buy this new iphone.
Kloquewerk - September 1, 2012 at 9:02pm
A lot of people are commenting on why he didn't turn the phone on...apparently you guys can't listen very well. He specifically says he was asked not to reveal the company who let him check it out and was told NOT to turn it on. Please know what you're talking about before you comment so stupidly.
Ali - September 1, 2012 at 9:05pm
Maybe you should take into consideration the fact that he picks up/moves the phone around with such little effort and makes it seem as If the phone is a cardboard cutout then you'd be able to understand why people are skeptical.
Kloquewerk - September 2, 2012 at 3:40am
I was merely commenting towards the people who keep asking why he didn't turn the phone on...
No name

Has no sense to see an unveiled phone but didn´t turned it on??? thats stupid!!, if you are going to show something, then make it worth it! I agree with some people over here that said is a dummy phone. Perhaps, iOS 6 its already in beta phase, so people already had tested it, so still don´t have sense this video. Analize a bit and you will know what I´m talking about.
JeffreyLee4Free - September 1, 2012 at 7:26pm
It's a dummy phone for sure. One of the first times he flips over the phone to the front his muscle memory kicks in and he pushes the home button but nothing happens (could be off, why didn't it turn on?). Secondly, the Apple logo has an orange peel effect to it (looks rippled) and we know that's not normal. Thirdly, the bezel does have a plastic, nonmetallic look. Lastly, and the most obvious to me is the way he is handling the phone. It doesn't move the same way a fully functional phone would move. Dummy phones are lighter and they land differently in your hand while your "fondling" them. Flipping an empty dummy phone requires a bit less exertion. Who knows what the "New iPhone" will look like until Apple reveals it. I'm hoping it doesn't look like this but has a complete redesign. I can dream can't I? *_*
Speaking of...
Speaking of... - September 1, 2012 at 8:19pm
That's not muscle memory. Do you even know what that is?
al - September 1, 2012 at 8:40pm
You are right, is a dummy, if you just look just when he picks it up, you'll notice that is lightweight.
JeffreyLee4Free - September 2, 2012 at 2:09pm
Yes I do know what muscle memory is. However, the majority of people us the term "muscle memory" synonymously with "fine motor memory". My desire was to us a more widely understood term to get my point across. I'm glad someone else knows the difference. It's possible you and I just schooled some people on using the correct term for "motor memory" /high five/ for the public service announcement. P.S. My nutritionist and personal trainer friends are going to be happy this topic was talked about on a "geek/tech/news" site.
Hemanth - September 1, 2012 at 7:09pm
In my perception it is fake I phone and for the new I phone we wait till to September 12
Sharp - September 1, 2012 at 7:08pm
Fake as my girlfriends boobs. We all know there is a copycat with android installed. This guy does not turn it on for that reason.
Billy - September 1, 2012 at 6:32pm
Sorry but to me that looks fake, it could look like who knows, but i work in cell phones and i came across "china ski phone" wana be iphone
Justabrake - September 1, 2012 at 6:14pm
Same old apple give as little as possible upgrading it'll always be next year
Buc0727 - September 1, 2012 at 5:55pm
I hate the ear phone jacks on the bottom like the iPod touch 2 g that's a downgrade fuk
Justabrake - September 1, 2012 at 6:13pm
I always turn my iPhone upside down when putting it in my shirt pocket ( with earplugs)and it seems that's where it should go, it makes Sense to me
insaneweb - September 1, 2012 at 10:01pm
it's clearly a dummy model to show the iphone case. it has a clear plastic look and the buttons look very... imperfect... too rounded, i don't know how to explain but it's clearly not the high precision parts Apple has got us used to.
Question - September 1, 2012 at 5:50pm
it's so ugly... omg.
Speaking of...
Speaking of... - September 1, 2012 at 6:59pm
How is it ugly? It's half an inch bigger than the current iPhone. Jackass.
Ali - September 1, 2012 at 7:34pm
I personally like it but you are the jackass. Just because the phone is bigger doesn't make it look better? How can you be so ignorant.
Diske - September 1, 2012 at 5:42pm
Strange how the camera lens is bigger compared to the other leaked images/videos. It's another fake to that ppl like to speculate about, just pushing the $APPL upwards like any other day. If Apple was leaking this shit themselves I would go nerd rage!!
boris - September 1, 2012 at 5:32pm
suddly but this is the real iphone 5 for shure u will see after a month that its tru
yamadirt - September 1, 2012 at 5:50pm
Why do people do this shit? Sure it looks good, but don't let them fool you. Even if the new iPhone looks like this phone, this is not a real phone. This is a plastic copy. Notice how the Guy says he can't say who showed it to him and that he can't turn it on. Well, it turns out this is a plastic dummy.
6italia0 - September 1, 2012 at 5:18pm
This is probably just a dummy phone, otherwise he wouldve turned it on for one and two if you pay attention to the detail the bezel looks like plastic while the apple logo is also kind of rippily and jagged looking, unless this iphone was designed to look like shit by samsung then this is nothing more than a dummy phone
Arkhi - September 1, 2012 at 5:00pm
I think it may be called the iPhone 4GS as it will be 4G compatible with LTE then Samsung can try and sue Apple!
Ali - September 1, 2012 at 4:33pm
STOP CALLING IT THE IPHONE 5! The 5th generation iphone was the 4s. 1. Iphone 2g 2. Iphone 3g 3. Iphone 3gs 4. Iphone 4 5. Iphone 4s and FINALY 6. THE NEW IPHONE
*sigh* - September 2, 2012 at 11:48am
Don't be silly, we know that it'll just be "The New iPhone", in the same vein as iPad 3.
iamdwaynewhite - September 1, 2012 at 4:33pm
Screen looks like plastic...fake
Captjgvex - September 1, 2012 at 4:35pm
I agree with you on this. It's obviously a plastic model; there is no weight to it at all. But it's an awesome looking piece.
Justabrake - September 1, 2012 at 4:30pm
Looks kind of light they way he's handling it maybe it's a dummy phone
Fake!!! - September 1, 2012 at 4:25pm
at 0:57 when he puts the case down and tried to pick the phone up the phone displaces on the table because he loses the grip... and the original phone if 120gm and that much volume wouldn't have displaced that much with just a light tug!!
King - September 1, 2012 at 4:25pm
Wonder what's the hold up...there hasn't even been any invites sent out to the event! Wonder how many ppl would seriously drop iPhones and get new phones if there's ISN'T an event! Hmmm
Lucas - September 1, 2012 at 4:18pm
Just...fucking launch the damn phone already!
King - September 1, 2012 at 4:18pm
Im hoping that all these ppl claiming that this is the "real" iPhone look so amazingly STUPID once apple unveils the REAL iPhone 5!!
Isac - September 1, 2012 at 4:17pm
If it was real why they dont turn it on!!
