At a location which isnt being told to us, a few chaps in Berlin, Germany got hands-on with a REAL WORKING iPhone 5!
And the serial numbers from the device, were checked. It showed up as – iPhone (5,1)
That pretty much explains it all, doesnt it?
Here is what the folks from iMore say –
While the unit we saw was a non-functional dummy, if the specs it’s based upon are indeed accurate to the release hardware, it repeats several aspects of the product’s design that have previously been reported based on parts and other leaks.
This iPhone 5 dummy is approximately as wide as the current 4S, only taller, and sporting a widescreen display. There’s a smaller home button underneath. The fake front on the Home screen sports five rows of icons on account of the extra real estate. As iMore reported earlier, there’s a new, smaller Dock connectordown below, in addition to a 3.5mm headphone jack. The bottom face of the design is peppered with a large speaker grille, alongside those other components. Around the back, there’s a brushed metal rear panel decorated with a shiny Apple logo.
Essentially, again, it looks like every leak we’ve seen over the past several months. The pictures we’ve seen from factory leaks and other sources are an almost exact match for the dummy device we saw today.
While nothing with Apple is ever truly final until it’s held up on stage, if this dummy is based on accurate information, does indeed look like we’re in for a widescreen iPhone with a new dock connector and a redesigned chassis in just a few weeks.
They werent able to get hands-on with the real device, but they did get hands-on with an iPhone 5 dummy!
And like they said, it looks exactly like the leaks we have been seeing for the past months.
Guess we just have to wait for 20 days until Apple unveils this device.
