    Ok so this is as good as proof you will get for the few doubters still out there. Here's another prototype of the next iphone, this one gets turned on.

    No two tone? Matte black back?

    That thing looks sick.

    For those who don't want to waste time, skip to 2:53 for the part where it's actually turned on.

    IMO this prototype, if it is indeed real, is ugly. This mockup looks much nicer.

    It might be the physical dimensions but I doubt that's the color scheme.

    Prototypes. If it really is a prototype, it's probably remote locked, and when connected to iTunes it will be remote bricked.

    Main thing I liked about the iPhone was its aspect ratio. So much better for reading while 16:9 is better for movies and games. Only thing I really wanted was a screen that would display bigger text for less eye strain. Changing the aspect while maintaining width will only allow for more small text not larger text...

    That could be a case covering the real 2012 iPhone; just like the iPhone 4 was in a 3GS case during its testing period. From a distance, it looks like an iPhone 4/4S so no one would be the wiser.

    Something looks weird with the new dock connector cut out in the video. Too big, mishaped, or something.

    This design is beautiful. I love the flush rounded edges all around. It lacks the steel band around the side so it truly has a unibody appearance. This is the phone I'm hoping for!

    Good find.

    Huh? Why not just turn it sideways? The text could then be larger for reading etc. :cool:

    No more eye strain, just hand cramps from so much scrolling.

    But seriously, I read a lot of PDF files with wiring schematics and portrait always works better for me because like the exaggerated pic above you just can't see enough.

    I used to think apples aspect ratio was dumb but for reading I think it's perfect.

    As a side note. With an elongated screen I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything by not upgrading. :)

    that's definitely real, is too good to be fake.

    4S looks much nicer, it has to be said

    Sure, then you'd get carpal tunnel from all the scrolling you'd have to do. It's absolutely claustrophobic using the iPhone in landscape.

    Back to the video: I'm curious where all the back seams went. If the back is one piece metal, how can the antenna signals get out? Unless the back is, in fact, polycarbonate.

    Then again, a prototype doesn't have to work 100%..

    It could be a prototype that won't be the same as what they'll actually release though. I say that because it looks very unpolished, it looks like an early design to me. The other leaks with the two tone design look far more finished.

    This video is fake in the fact that when he turns on the screen, he does not move the phone at all. He holds it completely still so that he can edit in the apple and Connect to iTunes screen later in post production. Lets see him turn on the screen and move the phone around while he has it on!
