Update: Here's yet another alleged iPhone 5 pic, but this one definitely looks faaaaake. Original story continues below.
What we see (as you'll see in 9to5Mac's pic posted below) is what appears to be an iPhone, but claims of rounded edges and a thinner body are hard to make out, as you can see for yourself.
There's suggestions that the flash is below the camera lens, that the volume buttons have returned to the 'rocker' style from earlier iPhones, that there's a curved back a-la the iPad 2 and perhaps even the original iPhone, and suggestions that the person holding the so-called iPhone 5 was trying to avoid attention.
Obviously, if any of that is true, the person in question wasn't successful - unless, of course, you are of the belief that Apple is intentionally trying to leak something about the iPhone 5 to give all those people wavering between waiting for the next iPhone and getting a dual-core Android smartphone now an additional 'reason' to keep on waiting.
9to5Mac also has some pics of supposed iPhone 5 cases, although these appear to be different to other iPhone 5 case pics recently released, with those earlier iPhone 5 cases apparently putting the LED camera flash on the other top corner of the next iPhone.
Perhaps the earlier iPhone 5 case pic from Alibaba is showing us not a repositioned LED camera flash, but perhaps a second camera to enable 3D photos as LG and HTC's 3D Android smartphones are already able to deliver.
Unfortunately, unless you're a corrupt Foxconn employee or part of Steve Jobs' iNner iCircle, it's all just speculation, while undoubtedly delivering 9to5Mac a traffic boost of epic proportions.
So'¦ a pic of a supposed iPhone 5 has emerged, although to me, it looks far from convincing.
Heck, it could even be a KIRF or 'keepin' it real fake' model that someone has imported from China.
It could be damn well anything. Well, almost.
However, it is nice to think that, however fuzzy the pic is, it is showing us the first glimpse of the next iPhone, and until the next pic or pics come out from the fog of smartphone war, this will have to do for now!
