Leaked iPhone 5 Shown Booting Up On Video

iphone 5 4s bootingRecently, news, rumors and leaks pertaining to the upcoming iPhone have dominated the technology news sector. However, all the leaks until this point have simply been various parts, a dock connector flex cable here, a two-tone unibody back housing there and maybe a partially assembled enclosure if we’re lucky – until now.

It seems that someone has successfully managed to smuggle a device that appears to be a fully-fledge iPhone 5 out of what could only be one of Apple’s manufacturing plants; presumably Foxconn.

In the video, embedded above, it shows the device booting up alongside an iPhone 4S. Just when all signs point towards a successful boot, the video is cut short once the device reaches the following error upon booting into the PC-free onscreen setup:

This device is not registered as part of the iPhone Developer Program. If you are a member of the program, please register your device in the @@url@@.

Nevertheless, in all honesty, this leak appears to be genuine, considering it boots into what’s undoubtedly iOS after first displaying the Apple boot logo. Moreover, with this video following the plethora of similar leaks, it’s highly unlikely that this is anything but the official design for the next-generation iPhone – unless Apple seeded the biggest diversion in the company’s history.

The upcoming iPhone is said to feature a vertically enhanced screen to achieve an aspect ration that’s closer to the 16:9 HD standard, a unibody design a smaller dock connector, redesigned microphone and speaker grills, nano-SIM technology and a repositioned headphone jack, front-facing camera and sensors. The device is scheduled to be unveiled one week from today on September 12th in San Francisco, California at 10:00 AM Pacific time (1:00 PM eastern). Stay tuned for lived coverage on Apple’s upcoming iPhone unveiling event.

    There are rumors it is a Goophone. This is a chinese company who’s claiming they will sue Apple if the iPhone 5 will look like their phone. I guess this is a fake iphone 5 “clone” the design should be the same but de os is different. Even though the iPhone 5 isn’t released yet.

    Really interesting but i have a hard time believing this is a real video. I have no doubt this is what the 5 will look like, but with all the video editing software out there this could easily be a hoax. Nevertheless i cant wait for the 12th for the true unveiling.
