Chinese ex-teen idol Jimmy Lin leaks what he claims is the iPhone 5 on Weibo

0. phoneArena 03 Sep 2012, 09:04 posted on

He waxes about the purported features, such as a larger 4" screen, aluminum alloy for the back, and a new dock connector, but says the handset is slimmer, yet feels almost the same in the hand, as the current version. His observation about the material on the rear is that it resembles very much what we have on the iPad, so we are likely to experience a glass/aluminum fusion as the chassis of the next iPhone, if all the leaks and rumors turn out legit...

Heh. I also had to think of Justin Bieber, instantly. Our sick minds and poor ears. The Killers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, R.E.M., System of a Down ftw.

I don't care about iPhone 5 since Apple won the nonsense trial against Samsung I am very sick to see or looking at Apple products. From now on I never touch Apple products at Apple Store in the mall as I used to do since 2 years ago. Good bye Apple here come Galaxy S3 I am typing comments all day and weeks with no problems of stalling or stop working. Galaxy S3 is the smoothest Android phone ever.

Maybe when the GS3 gets AOSP it will be as smooth as the Galaxy Nexus but if you think its smoother with TouchWiz then you be out your damn mind.

He is either trolling or spamming or maybe even showing off his new Galaxy S3 like all the old iFans likes to do

Probably a Chinese knock off. Is Jeremy cheap or Apple lost it?

FINALLY! A leaked photo of the rumored Iphone 5 with screen turned on! But, for me, i still consider iphone 4 the best iphone apple ever launched. Iphone 4s was not that hot for me for it's just an upgrade.

It's a Chinese mock-up of the iPhone 5. End of story. Now let's move on to some real news.

Galaxy Nexus with jelly bean vs The New iPhone (or whatever it's called) with iOS 6, who will win ?

Everything Apple is releasing now looks boring. If this is a true mock up I wont even bother with it. My 4S I have will due just fine if I decide to use an apple device.

Rolls Royce has never taken pride into market share nor it cared about main stream devices. they make devices for their customers. 2) a phone is a phone and a computer is a computer, everything has its own purpose. phone is about making calls, txt msg, and good apps, good browser, good radios and connectivity which iphone beats all other competitors bar far! why dont u douche bags relax, people dont buy it cuz they new one is around the corner! me and you all know once it gets released its gonna blow everything out of the water ;-) plus iphone has and will have the highest customer satisfaction ;-) SIMPLE BUT PROPER LIKEE A FERRARI

G Nexus on any carrier is smooth as butter end of story

G Nexus on any carrier will also run out of batteries within 4 hours on medium use. I've used my gf's iphone before and with the same use it lasts at least 2x longer. I bought an extended battery for my Nexus and my friends still demand that I buy a new phone -_-'
