    FAKE
    But here it is
    [​IMG]

    As the watermark shows, this came from http://www.iphonenieuwsblog.nl

    Things to take from the image:
    - 5 rows of icons
    - "Galaxy" wallpaper
    - Can't seem to see a Passbook App icon, can't seem to see any of the little dots indicating home screen pages.


    Looks to be a fake, according to Mark Gurman. Lack of Passbook App and the lack of an iCloud logo makes me think it's fake too. I'm sorry guys.

    As the White Sox announcers say " She gone !!!" Or Mr. Trump "You're fired"

    To me, that does not look like the candy bar taller only iPhone, but a true 4" screen both taller + wider.

    Someone did a mock up photoshop pic of a very similar design few months ago, it looks exactly like that, which makes me happy, not being only taller. This could possibly tempt me back away from Android. Now to see the Nexus 5.0, decision time.

    So. It's not "iPhone 5"?

    I'm so confused at this point.

    This should clear things up:

    "don't believe everything you read/see on the internet"

    There, better?

    it's not even the 5th iPhone, why would they call it 5. It's technically 6.

    Just look at the patterns, we would be calling the current MacBook Pro MacBook Pro 10GS or something if they labeled it all...iPad also is perfect example.

    @Darthdingo I agree....if you shrink the phone to remove one row, it would look fat and stubby, but I won't get my hopes up. The pic is at an angle.

    the only thing that would lead me to believe that is is fake, "the new iPad" did not say "the new" on the box....just iPad. So why would Apple add it on "the new iPhone"

    I don't think it's real:

    -Youtube app
    -no Passbook app
    -iPad 3's packaging is just "iPad," not "the new iPad."

    If it's fake, they did a good job, though. I bet it's a real, printed image--employees decided to have some fun on their lunch break.

    Does look it, although I'm fairly sure it's the iOS 6 logo.

    Ha. Even if it was called "the new iPhone," they would just put "iPhone" on the box. (Like they did with "the new iPad.")

    exact same things that were running through my mind.
    a very nice looking fake, but a fake none the less. Maybe the SG4? :rolleyes:

    The Apple machine is working FULL circle right now. "leaks" for the biggest announced phone of the year? Photos mysteriously able to be put up to build hype sounds legit to me.. I'm believing everything from credible sources

    If this is real, I can't believe that woman let her face get photographed. I can see her job being terminated once traced back...

    That sucks is a fake. I am really hoping the display will be both taller + wider. Like the Nexus-S 4" screen, that was a very comfortable phone, not small, or too large, just right

    5 icons but only 4 in the dock part? Seems strange. If that's the youtube app then it's definitely fake.

    That's funny. The picture on "the box" shows TechnoBuffalo's render of the device.

    How weird.
