As we draw closer to that inevitable day when Apple grabs the entire attention of the tech space, and unveils the next iOS smartphone, obviously more and more rumours hit the net waves, and the latest little rumour is apparently an iPhone 5 has been smuggled out of Foxconn.
According to an article over on Emirates247, by way of Gizmodo, Chinese case maker Coolzonepda, has managed to get hold of an iPhone 5, and has posted images of the iOS smartphone, complete with the new 19-pin connector to their website.
Are the iPhone 5 images the real deal and a unit has been smuggled out of Foxconn? Well it’s not entirely impossible as it wouldn’t be the first time someone smuggled a new iPhone out of a factory, as pictures of an iPhone 4 along with video popped up on a Vietnamese website claiming to have been smuggled out of Foxconn.
That previous smuggled iPhone popped up about a month before Apple delivered the iPhone 4 on the 10th of June 2010, and obviously Foxconn was in mass production before the leaked iPhone 4 hit the net waves. So this latest leak could possibly suggest that the iPhone 5 is already in mass production at Foxconn.
So is Foxconn gearing up for that anticipated October release or sooner? Well as with all things Apple, it is difficult to say for sure, but as we have seen quite a few claimed iPhone 5 parts leaked recently, it could be possible, that is of course if these iPhone 5 images are real.
So what do our readers think about these supposed iPhone 5 pictures, real or fake?
