Can you imagine all of the jaws dropping to the floor if Tim Cook comes out, pulls out a phone that resembles all of these leaks, smiles and tosses it into the trash and then reveals the new iPhone AND it's completely different? Would be a sight to see, but I am guessing everything we have been seeing is 99.9% the real thing...

The sensors are so ugly on the white iPhone models.

I think this new iPhone will be amazing. Haters will hate.
What's so "amazing" about it? Just slightly taller for some insane reason?

The deeper black is becuase it's fake. Notice how he never holds it while it's booting up. He placed it on the table so he could easily overlay a fake video on the screen.

Ay Ay Ay. If this is for real, the thickness of both devices appears unnoticeable. I am expecting a noticeably thinner new iPhone. And lighterweight too. One more week to go, I guess.

Actually, I see it too.

50/50 as to whether its fake.

they have to do that as suppliers do. Go look at replacement back panels for iPhone 4/4s on ebay and you see the same thing.

Notice at 41 secs that the screen goes from a darkish color to totally black? This is not possible. You can't go "blacker" than the ambient color?? (not sure of the correct term) of the screen.

All of the boot up animation is fake.

  • Pin in the dock
  • White bands rather than chrome we've previously seen
  • The screen appears to be a little off kilter (a.k.a. digitally imposed)
  • There is tape on the back where the logos are because they didn't put the logos on
  • Extra sensors we've never seen
  • Sleep/Wake button looks oddly shaped compared to the 4s
  • Odd home button

I'm sure there are other things. This is fake.

Folks, freeze the vid at 0:30, just as he is spinning the phone around. The black part of the screen is suddenly totally unaligned with the phone, like it is bulging out. Video is FAKE.

besides the legitimate/fake video, i just didn't like the general measurements of the new iphone!

if it comes like the pictures which we saw, i don't really think i'll buy it. looks like a stretched tv remote with a screen

There were rumors about new screen technology. I guess we'll have to wait for another 168 hours before we know for sure

With all due respect, that isn't the only feature. If screen size is all you care about, get a galaxy note.

Can't be real as the iPhone 5 is only coming in two colour choices, Purple or Green.

It looks like the dot left of the earpiece is an ambient light sensor and the other one is a proximity sensor. looks like no notification led this time abound either.

Well done Apple, in 3 years all you've done is stretch it and change the shade slightly... I'm hoping for the workers on the S3 production line that this isn't the new phone, poor lil things are working hard enough anyway, but we all know what happened last year... All the mock up/pics were real.

Sell this to the people now Apple... But oh yes! Over in the UK on the new stretch phone you'll be able to get some of the function of the S3, oh yes, football results

Folks. These parts are all FAKE! Apple won't change the screen ratio on any iPhones period and make this ugly long iPhone. This is just one of the prototypes and all of us will be pleasantly surprised next week when they announce the NEW iPhone, not just tweaked version of iPhone 4/4s. Apple had full 2 years to develop a new design so NEW iPhone ought to be better than this leaked fake!

I call fake... I photoshopped red lines leading from the side bezels, and (other than a perspective error) it's clear that the bottom left bezel to top left is completely out of alignment.

Looks 100% legit to me. The front panel and home buttons are very likely earlier, prototype versions or just knock-offs. I remember purchasing a knock-off white front panel for my iPhone 4 before they were selling in white and the front panel was slightly different than the one that eventually shipped.

So by 100% legit, I mean that the LCD and most internal components are likely the ones we'll see next week or, at the very least, ones from earlier prototypes. This is based off the fact that it actually boots.

And I'm suddenly warming up to this "tall" screen!
