    Couldn't find a thread on these so I thought I'd start one.

    A Vietnamese forum has recently receive the posting of some photos related to what could be the new iPhone 5.

    "As you can see from these pictures, the screen of the new iPhone is expected to be larger than the iPhone 4's. Moreover, the differences of the frame suggests that they have made some antenna modification consequently addressing the loss of signal."

    Thoughts? Good photo shop?

    PhotoShopped for sure ... iPhone 5 rumors coming from China and Vietnam are not credible

    I thought this post was pointless and stupid, but after I look at the pictures more I am kind of humored; random, meaningless arrows.

    Random red arrows make things real!

    Why not? The phones are made in China and a semi-working iPhone 4 prototype (with testing software, not iOS) showed up in Vietnam after Giz found the other one... Vietnam confirmed the Retina display.

    Think before you say dumb things.

    if you look at the display layout its very similar in proportion to the leaked picture of touchscreen that we saw last month.

    it could be the iphone 5 who knows, like it or not a lot if things are made in china and then stamped with another countries seal.

    My old job we manufactured custom electronic machines in china and the finish them here in the USA and the sticker we put on those machines are MADE IN USA even thought 90% of the work was made in china. :)

    the photos look pretty legit to me. lines aren't parallel because it's a perspective photo. Lines won't be parallel (think vanishing point).

    could be a knock-off but either way, that screen, as tall as it is, probably isn't in the same aspect ratio we have now. partly because it's not that much wider than the current screen. it looks like 16:9.

    oh, and those arrows pointing to nothing are showing the missing antenna cuts in the frame.

    could also be a good fake :p

    There IS nothing to see here. No major design changes. No form factor changes. No specs.

    Move along.

    Maybe its just me, but I have NEVER had any desire to hang out in some random Vietnamese message forums waiting for fake pictures of a phone that doesn't exist yet.

    ...maybe its just me.

    lol ... dumb things? ... just because the iPhone is made in China and several knock-offs are also produced there ... that does not confirm anything about the 100s of "leaks" showing photoshop images of the next Apple products.

    These leaks are not credible ... Arn has also "confirmed" the photos are part of an "April Fools" prank.

    did you not read that part of the thread before you chirped in?

    I got excited when I saw this, then saw that it was fake. Then I thought well what id it was real but just labled as a prank.

    Then I looked at the pics closer, and it's obviously meaningless.

    In the second to bottom pic, the gap from the earpiece to screen is smaller than the gap from earpiece to top:

    [​IMG]

    But in the last image... the gaps are reversed, or pretty much equal, like now:

    [​IMG]


    Lastly, the "edge-to-edge" screen.. is no wider than it is now.
