Video of alleged next iPhone making the rounds, smells fishy

Video of alleged next iPhone making the rounds, smells fishy
A short video of what is claimed to be the next iPhone has surfaced, and, on paper, it does combine elements from what we've heard about the iPhone (s) about to be revealed on Tuesday.

The screen looks bigger, with a very thin bezel on the sides, which is actually one of the sayings, but this larger display rumor was usually attributable to the fifth generation of the iPhone, which other hearsay pegs to be thinner, with aluminum back or chassis, and teardrop shape, judging from some leaked cases and schematics.

The one on the video looks like an iPhone 4, so it might have pretenses to be the reported affordable iPhone 4S, which is, however, usually associated with the rumor that only the chipset might be changed to dual-core A5, and the camera bumped to 8MP, rather than having a larger display.

Also, it's pointed out that the dates on the lock and homescreen don't match, and the game that the guy is running at one point in the video, starts before he had lifted finger from the touchscreen. Anyways, you can see the video below and judge for yourselves if it's plausible or just a cry for attention.

it's fake. Its a china phone. A really cheap one with those designs and it's playing a video. His fingers are always too late and too early to press. You'll see it in pressing the video games, the home button pressing etc. THUMBS UP. ANOTHER iPHONE5 crap hype.

He keeps covering the home button. The button supposed to be wider but does not appear to be so. Fake!

Very good editing on the video, and here is editing tools that can make an iPhone 4 look like that. It looks fake to me because the way the metal shell is on the iPhone 4 around the edges is kind of thick so the working part of the screen would actually have to be sitting on it a little bit and I don't think it's possible to do that

It is funny how this came back up. I talked to a sprint customer about this a few weeks ago. Read my google + post and comment if you want.

Actually I can't believe that no one already thought this, but if anything that wouldn't be the iPhone 5, it would be the iPhone 4S. Remember there's more than one phone coming out.
