A video out of IFA in Berlin claimed to capture a fully assembled Apple iPhone 5, but a check of the identification numbers on the back of the device shows that this is a well designed mock-up of the next iteration of the Apple iPhone...

Exactly, of you think that we should wait to coment on apple iPhone untill it comes out than you don't understand the meaning of debating about the rumors and what the phone should and should not be like among other things. This site is not just about reporting on facts of the industry it has a lot more to do with rumors and speculation of future products because well I think that is more entertaining. And the coment sections are there to well coment about those rumors and also debate other coments. And besides the trolls that can ruin an entire comment section, it is what I like to do in my spare time. I am really in to this industry so no I will not wait to comment sir.

As soon as an Apple related news article is posted, floods of trolls start banging on about rectangles and patents -nothing to do with the article in question. Just scroll down here and read....

But then again I don't think PA care tbh, as long as they get the traffic. Happy trolls are win-win for them.

Please explain how that is true. Yes I think you have to skip over the trolls and noobs to get any thing worth heavy thinking but it's still there

okay lets take a look at this article… I am going to list the comments as 1= the first indented comment and 2= the next indented comment

1= snide remark about apple
2= complaining about android fans
3= apple hatred
4= snide remarks about apple
5= more anti-apple talk that 1. isnt true, and 2. has nothing to do with the mockup
6= AN ACTUAL COMMENT (no discussion though sadly since it is so far down)
7= apple hatred
8= apple annoyance
9= snide remarks
10= pointless
11= snide remark
12= pointless
13= apple hate
14= apple hate
15= pointless

So ur telling me 1/15 posts is worth something?

How is anybody supposed to get a good discussion about the mockup through 14 bad discussion leaders?

I hate Apple banned Samsung Galaxy, be a fair player don't ban anyone and be a competitive and innovative company. Apple is a very weak company in innovative and productive by banned other phone makers is very outragous actions.

Get over your self sir this is a coment section with most people using there small phone keyboards to type. It's all about the point of the comment and if you get it. The hardest errors in these coments is the placement of periods and commas, because that can change the whole meaning of a coment by changing the location or adding those

I was trying to remember the name of that phone for days! This phone was a mere experiment gone wrong for LG but was interesting back in those days. Apple cloning its design now is not a good idea however!

Apparently the LG well didn't run dry after the Prada.

You do know that slave labor made those iphones and pads. Where is the outcry for this horrible business practice? I can't wait for the Galaxy Note 2.

Slave labor doesn't get paid and didn't have the choice to work there. Poor working conditions, sure. And Apple are not nearly the only company that uses them.

The good news is, by publicly shaming Apple, we've managed to get the conditions and pay improved some. Tim Cook has at least some conscience, unlike his predecessor. I just wish we could shame him into moving the jobs back to the USA.

I dont like apple but, lets be honest here...

you do realize that every company out there has the same labor practices, just that apple is under the spotlight for making so much money right now, where as other companies offer less benefits and worse working conditions.

oh okay so you will admonish apple for slave labor, which has never been found, but samsung is okay although they use child labor?

http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57488780-93/samsu ng-under-fire-by-watchdog-group-for-using-child-la bor/

neither company is probably in the right, but samsung is no better than apple in this respect..

Very good point but take a look at this story it has nothing to do with that. There should be an entire artical and I am sure there is, that you can debate this

These leaks have been consistent, so it's safe to say this is the new iPhone... Just looks kind of odd, so tall and narrow... Wish Apple would have gone with 4.3" and made it a bit wider as well. Something better be killer with the software, because the hardware seems very lackluster. And they better not pull something like Siri again; put something in that seems like a good idea, then it gets out-done by another thing in a few months (Google Now). Looking forward to the announcement, don't disappoint Apple.

apple didn't really gain anything yet with litigation. maybe some delays or temporary injumctions.

apple should just stop. they should put all their litigation money into innovation. and then they can make something as awesome as the first iphone
I want to like apple. I loved their products and i still love some of them(macbook pro :) retina display)

apple just f**ckin stop. you ain't going anywhere. sue someone when they really copy you(like xiaomi)

Because every body is drooling over anything apple related that can be found on the net no matter how little of difference in substance that's changes in the artical

You can see by the reflections this is NOT the real iPhone itself but I think a very accurate mock-up.
Well...the only real difference I see is the 4" screen but I'm sure the people from Apple will prove that I am stupid and that it holds over 1000's of INNOVATIVE and UNIQUE features and blah blah.
Have you hipsters prepared your money and tents to wait in front of Apple Stores in September??

iPhone lovers are willing to wait in a shelter for a new iPhone and get fire from their job and it is going to be a permanent shelter in front of Best Buy or Apple Store.

I am looking forward to the next iphone - I am sure it look vastly different than the last phone, as it always does.
