Here’s your supposed iPhone 5
There you go, the alleged new iPhone 5. Personally, I’ll believe it when I see it, but at the very least, if this is a fake, it’s a fake with a neat story behind it.
Supposedly, what iLab, the providers of this image did, was buy all the iPhone 5 parts supposedly floating around and assemble them into an actual, honest-to-God iPhone 5.
I’m a bit skeptical, and here’s why: while there are certainly most likely iPhone 5 parts floating around out there, it’s a bit much to expect that iLab was able to secure enough of them to get an idea of what the machine actually looks like. Also, we’re taking the idea that these are OEM parts, and not just junk parts being sold as iPhone parts, on faith. There’s no guarantee that any of this is legit and not just a website’s flight of fancy.
Nonetheless, iLab deserves kudos for making a product that looks almost exactly like something Cupertino would turn out. So even if it’s a total fake, at least it’s a total fake with some genuine style.
