iPhone 5 Clone Spotted in China

The image below is what could be the iPhone 5 when it launches. The device is a clone that was built in China, perhaps by people who have access to the designs of the new iPhone. It’s a little different to what we expected in that it’s a cross between an iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 in that it has the metal sides, but instead of being completely flat, the edges are more rounded.

From what we understand, the fake iPhone 5 pictured above and below measures just 7mm in thickness (compared to 9.3mm of the iPhone 4).

Some comments over on Gizmodo suggest that this is a step back in design for Apple although others actually like the design. There’s also thoughts that this cut be a cut down version of the iPhone (a budget model). Also, someone comments that the screen looks a little small which in part, we’d have to agree looking at the bezel on the right side of the screen.

We’ll find out for sure in the next month or two, so keep checking back for the full announcement.
