    That just looks like the slate iPhone 5 in bad lighting.

    Agreed. Someone needs to retire Mr. Blurry Cam.

    Could be a troll who painted it . Haven't seen any other links so quite skeptical

    Not the camera's fault.
    You'd blur photos too if you had to shoot with 80's thrift shop puke brown sofas in the background.

    So the camera was purposely blurring the shot to save us all from the horror?

    Doubt it. Most likely some troll who either messed with the lighting (or the picture itself on his computer), or wasted money on a colored anodizing service.

    Taking blurry pictures of your iPhone will not make it look like you have an early prototype. This isn't a UFO website.

    Are you guys serious that phone is CLEARLY blue, look at the lock button versus the surrounding aluminum. It's not a 5S because it's clearly a phone treated through Anostyle or a similar service, but really, it's not just a normal slate iPhone 5.

    It's also clearly either a fake or a Colorware'd phone

    Has to be someone that has painted it. Here's why:

    1. If this were even close to a legit rumor, sites like The Verge, MacRumors, 9to5Mac and Engadget would have reported it a long time ago.
    2. It's not a "Slate" iPhone 5 with different lighting because if you look at the 4th photo, the Power button is most definitely black and the phone is not
    3. The photo quality is terrible, if someone really did have a dark blue iPhone 5S. Then show me the home button and do it in a room with a light on. Not in your parents living room with nasty brown couches.

    EDIT: Nevermind, TC already confirmed it as a fake
