    Reminds me a similar video that was posted days before the 6S was released which ended up being legit. If the device being shown in the video isn't an authentic apple device bravo for the work on that team or persons part, if not a pretty good look at what future buyers shall be getting. As can be seen the poster/sharer of the video says it isn't real. We shall see, also what say you fine folk.

    Can't understand word he says, some foreign language or really mumbles bad.

    And video didn't show any unboxing. Phone was already out of box when video started. False advertising. I wanted to see shrink wrap come off.

    He claims the unboxing is fake in the tweet itself. Am I missing something?

    Yeah I mentioned that he says/claims it's inauthentic, but felt the posting of the video was worth it due to a similar early revealed of the IP6 before the event was posted and many also said it wasn't real and it ended up being real so this one carriers a similar feel. Either way it falls we pretty much have an idea of what were getting, this very device or something very similar. Another thought is if it is a fake device then it's a pretty darn good one.

    Yeah, but why does your title say "if fake" and the OP says "of the device being shown in the video isn't authentic." You're contradicting yourself.

    No, I get what you're saying; I just don't understand why you said it. The video admits to being fake, so there is no "if." It simply "is."

    Ahhh, i see what your saying. I said "if" because the person sharing the video is warning against believing it, despite it looking pretty convincing atleast to me. So despite the tweeter stating that the device is fake, whatever party is responsible for the video, the device being shown has a bit of weight on it's side for being authentic given what we know, and past similar videos to it.

    But can you prove it's fake. After all we have not seen the real iPhone 7 yet. All we have is word of the video maker saying it's fake. He could be lying.

    Yes, did you see how sluggish the device was flipping between pages on the home screen? Even an iPhone 5S on iOS 10 performs better. The camera launched about as fast as the iPhone 3GS did when it came out. It's no A10 processor in that device. One of the replies to the video was this is a knockoff from Vietnam, they've seen the device before. Also, I'd imagine that the iPhone 7 box art will be of the waves, not of the fish from the iPhone 6S box that was also used with the knockoffs. Need any more proof?

    Thanks for point out that detail of the box art, i admittedly didn't notice that on the one view of the video, goes to show how many of use are on a quick reactive mode, as can be evidence by my post, when it comes to this kind of news. Funny creatures us humans are when it this kind of phenomenon.

    The power and volume buttons look like they protrude out from the phone way too far to be real.
    It does also appear to be a bit sluggish. It looks like there was a bit of a glitch in the unlocking animation when he unlocked it at 2:05.
    3D Touch seems to work, which none of the knockoffs have yet (to my knowledge anyway, if an iPhone knockoff exists that has 3D Touch, could someone let me know?)
    The resolution of the video is horrible, so I can't really comment on the camera.

    It could be real, but I'm not convinced.

    @HEK @Will0827 No worries y'all, a lot of people would miss those kinds of details, I ended up watching the video twice and pausing at places, mainly right after I saw how slow the device was. Making sure it wasn't some kind of weird lag on the phone. Going forward, check the background, sometimes there are tell all clues that give it away, you just have to make the associations based on the context of the video.

    Let's just say this is real. Did we learn a thing here? Serious question. Didn't show the back of the device. It could pass as a 6 or 6s series to me... maybe I've lost my touch.

    The volume buttons, power button, and vibration switch stick out disgusting too far. Also, why would a brand new iPhone 7 use the app arrangement (sans the addition of the Home app) as iOS 9 when the iPhone 7 will never run iOS 9 and the betas updated the default app arrangement. I love when people "leak" new iPhones, iPads, etc. and fail to just update the app arrangement to at least what it is in the betas. That would make it a little more believable.

    Let's not call it "losing touch." Let's call it "gaining perspective." If you're like me, it' just no longer worth the time spent dissecting every last rumor and video. I'll see the devices in less than a week. Rumored videos just aren't worth me worrying about.

    That might fall under the getting older perspective. It's the perspective where an hour seems more like a minute, and there isn't enough time in a week to get done what you think could be done in a few hours.

    For me I get my new phone and by the time the next phone comes out, I'm still satisfied with my old one because I feel like I've only had it for 3 months due to the old-timers perspective. by the time the next upgrade (say 's' to 's' model) comes out I'm ready for a new phone. It still feels like I've had my phone for 6 months in my head, but my phone looks at me like "Just kill me know, for the love of God, just toss me."

    I could tell the font was off on the clock when I first looked at it. The animations are also different.

    Yeah....this is pretty terrible.

    1. He never shows us the bottom of the phone, which would reveal the removed aux port
    2. He never flips it over so we can see the camera or name
    3. Would Apple really use the same packaging as last year?

    How would anyone be fooled by this?
