Purported iPhone 5 Prototype Unit Leaked, Powers On To ‘Connect to iTunes’ Screen [VIDEO]

Following yesterday’s hands on video of an iPhone 5 dummy unit at IFA 2012, another video of a purported black iPhone 5 prototype has been leaked on YouTube as pointed out by Cydiablog. Uploaded by Chris, the guy claims to have acquired the unit from an “anonymous source” in China, which when turned on, prompts to the ‘Connect to iTunes’ screen.

Since the uploader apparently hasn’t got his hands on a sync cable that fits the smaller dock connector, he couldn’t go past the ‘Connect to iTunes’ prompt when trying to start the purported iPhone 5 prototype.

As noted by Chris:

“The next generation iPhone doesn’t have reflective glass, instead Apple has replaced it with a matte black aluminum, as seen in previous leaks. The prototype is about half an inch longer than the iPhone 4s, meaning the screen real state has increased considerably.

As, seen in past leaked photos, headphone jack has been moved to the bottom of the device – next to the two speakers (or one speaker and one microphone?).  The front facing camera is now placed above the ear speaker, in the centre of the iPhone. And finally, the dock connector on the prototype is smaller as well, it’s now about half the size of the current dock connector”.
