    Looks like Gizmodo have done it again, or have they?

    I may be wrong, but I don't think you can have an all aluminum back on a cell phone. No place for the antenna signals to get out. Polycarbonate? Prototype?

    iPhone asks to be connected to iTunes, something which hasn't been in place since iOS 4.

    Whether the hardware is real or not is debatable, but there's no way the end of the video depicts a real booting of the phone.

    It is very easy to make the connect to iTunes logo appear even on the latest ios5

    That video told us nothing of how the new phone compares in terms of "feel", weight, etc.

    It it easy to make it happen by just holding down the power button and switching the phone on? Because that's all the guy in this video does.

    No, but you only need to make it happen once for the phone to require it after every boot until you connect

    The texture of this phone looks amazing. Looks like a high quality plastic; very soft, very durable.

    As long as there's no glass on the back I'll be happy. I never understood that.

    Connect to iTunes? That's pre-iOS5 behavior. I call bull.

    No it's not. DFU mode still exist. Not to mention this thing is probably not running stock iOS 6 software. It's probably running testing/diagnostic stuff since it's a prototype.

    Meh, I guess that's possible. I was thinking default behavior on boot up.

    But I still don't buy this video.

    I would expect any of these things that are "in the wild" right now would not have a default boot behavior. Apple probably wants to keep tabs. Maybe requiring you to plug it in on every boot, all the better for them to track it with.

    Whether or not the video is real I have no idea. But even if it's fake, I'd imagine the real deal would function more like this and less like the iPhone in my pocket right now.

    It's fake. The video is edited. Notice how he puts it down the moment it fades away, which might I add never happens in restore mode. It just blacks out.

    The iPads has both a UMTS and LTE radio modem and no need for a two-tone back.
