    Default Alleged Chinese iPhone Prototype

    I looked and couldn't find a post for this topic...

    I'm sure everyone's seen it already; the Chinese mock up of the iPhone 5 based on the cases a company released not too long ago. If not, then here:





    If it was made of glass again, and had the same metal band material like on the iPhone 4, I'd probably consider the purchase but my contract runs up next year. This does remind me of the iPhone 3G/3GS a lot.

    What do you guys think? Is it real? Would you buy? What would you change?
    Sound off.

    it looks just like a 3G/3GS! I thought it was going to get a bigger screen so maybe fake? not too sure as it does look a little different to my old 3GS...

    Well keep in mind its just a mockup and doesn't actually mean that the iPhone will look like this. The screen looks smaller than the 3.5 inch they already supply us.

    I don't think it looks near as nice as the iPhone 4.

    This phone is not real. Sorry, that statement is ambiguous, I'm sure that it is not imaginary but it is probably not an iPhone or genuine Apple product.

    Some of the things that definitely give it away...

    The screen has the incorrect aspect ratio and is too small
    The mute switch is a button and not a toggle switch
    the volume rockers are from the 3Gs and would probably not be used in the same exact form
    there is a bezel around the headphone jack which is too large
    the font that spells iPhone on the back of the device is different
    Assembled in the USA? (wouldn't that be nice though)

    Guys... we know its not real. Just post whether you would buy it or not, why you like it or why you dont like it. And try not to focus on the screen size or anything. Evaluate the case design. That's all.

    Wow. Never mind. How do you lock / close threads? I can see we're not going to get anywhere with this...

    I like the design. Hopefully they would make the screen a little bigger if this is a similar design to the iphone 5.

    I actually think this device looks gorgeous, and I wouldn't be surprised if this is what Apple came out with for the 8GB iPhone 4 instead of keeping the same expensive construction.

    That is the version I would prefer out of the options shown off. Hopefully the IP3GS becomes your 8GB freebie, IP4 16GB version and IP5 becomes the 32GB & 64GB variants or just drop the 3GS altogether. I prefer my storage local so I am not reliant on the cellular network to get my streaming media over 3G (unless we get LTE (Verizon))

    I saw this one on another site and it is by far my favorite one. I really hope the new iPhone turns out like this or very similar to it in design.
