Video shows realistic mock-up of Apple iPhone 5

Video shows realistic mock-up of Apple iPhone 5
GSM Israel thought it had captured on video a fully assembled 6th generation Apple iPhone at IFA. The device was spotted during a tour of the show in Berlin. The phone in the video looks like some of the devices that were "assembled" using parts that have been leaked separately over the last few weeks. GSM Israel says that the CEO of one of the biggest case manufacturers, who had the phone in his pocket, verified the device as being a genuine Apple iPhone 5. The executive asked that the device not be turned on as it would expose him as being the source of the leak.

However, Apple Insider questioned the validity of the model in the video noting that the reflections on the screen of the device are those usually found from a synthetic material and not from a screen using Gorilla Glass. More telling, the model number on the handset "Model NO. A1303," had already been used by Apple for the Apple iPhone 3GS and the FCC ID of "BCGA1303A" was the FCC ID for the Apple iPhone 3GS.

While the device in the video isn't the real thing, it certainly is a nice looking mock-up that gives us a good idea of what to expect in Tim Cooks hands during Apple's September 12th event.

How is it designed by Apple engineers? All those parts are designed and built by other companies. Apple only decides what goes in and designs the box and OS. That's it, there is not even one Apple internal.

Apple usually has a big part in a lot of the parts that go in them. Yes they are ultimly designed by other company's but apple well atliest it's true when jobs was around would accept or reject design of parts and also helped design how they would look and opperate

Its Engineers .. And if thats the best these supposedly best engineers can make, then Apple is in MAJOR trouble. No wonder all the litigation around the world.

Not nearly as old as hearing Apple claim to have invented everything the modern mobile phone is, like basic geometric shapes, grids of icons, centered touchscreen, etc...

The difference is your trolling if your comments are nothing more than name calling and are not a counter opinion. A good comment would be to say (I don't agree that what I am about to say is right but I am just giving a example) aple has the right to defend there pattents and even though your right they did not invent thos claims they were the only company to apply for and get a pattent for those ideas. Even though the pattents are to me bullsh** pattents they do have them and have the right and should protect them.
