[Update] Possible iPhone 5 Spy Photo Emerges

Share:

Update 1: Looks like Gizmodo sheds some more light on the ‘spy photo’ posted below. It was originally posted by a twitter user @rob1p, then re-posted to MacRumors this morning by a ‘newbie’ user. The catch? The text he forgot to leave out from his original tweet en Francais:

Une photo comme ça pourrait rendre des sites fous…

…which translates to: “A picture like that could drive websites crazy”

Yes, it sure did get us ‘excited’. Nonetheless, I still love these ‘prototypes’.

It’s a great time whenever there’s an iPhone launch, as rumours are always fast and furious. Let’s not forget the spy shots, too. The following image was posted in the MacRumors forums by a user claiming the image was captured ‘in the office of a French operator’.

It shows an iPhone with an slightly thinner aluminum band, and the user’s fingers are blurred out. Give me your comments below–is this the next iPhone 5? I think it’s a perfect fake. If this was indeed real, it would be taken down by now. 😉

Thanks Paulo for the email!

    Fake or not, the iPhone 5 will look similar to that I think. Oh yeah, according to Steve who just confirmed me the news too.

  • This photo is clearly fake (the fingers are super pixelated), however the iPhone 5 could possibly look similar to this, as the back appears to be rounded.

    a clear fake, if that iPhone “5” is truly in the settings, then why are the icons on the opposite side? The Carrier is at the top, the settings below, then the small icons should be on the left of the words. Everybody go check your iPhones, you’ll see what I am talking about.

    It’s clearly a ‘mirror’ image. Just using a bad setting on the camera, notice the volume buttons and front camera are on the right side, do a horizontal flip in photoshop and see what it’s supposed to look like.

    Actual translation would be: “A picture like that could drive websites crazy”.
