Has the iPhone 5 been seen in public?
We’ve heard all of the rumors about the upcoming iPhone 5 but which ones are actually true? We’ve heard rumors that the new iPhone will be a radical redesign, thinner and lighter with a bigger screen, and we’ve heard rumors that it will be identical to the iPhone 4, but with internal upgrades and that the iPhone 6 would be a total revamp.
Techno Buffalo received a picture of a Target ad that had a photo of an iPhone that could possibly be the new iPhone, which featured tapered edges similar to the iPhone 3GS. However, this photo could have been doctored by Target’s art department to just feature an iPhone lookalike, rather than an actual product.
Now, 9to5Mac has received photos of a new iPhone, possibly the iPhone 5, in San Francisco held by a possible Apple employee. This possibly could have been an iPhone 5 prototype. The phone the tipster saw would fit into the iPhone 5 cases that have already been in production.
The new iPhone, according to 9to5Mac’s source, is thinner and wider than the current iPhone 4, which a screen size that’s “almost EVO-like.” “The edges are rounded metal like the edge of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 but could still function as an antenna.”
From the photos, it does look very similar to the backside as well as the side buttons of an iPhone 3GS. Also according to the “tipster,” the phone’s user was “trying to hide what he had more than the average smartphone user.”
What secrets do you think Apple is hiding? What do you think? Could this be the upcoming iPhone 5?
