Just weeks before the official announcement of iPhone 4, the actual handset was found in a bar and then later sold to a reporter who published videos and photos of the unannounced device. The entire episode turned out to be quite messy as Apple called in an investigation. However, this time it seems that an Apple employee may have unknowingly exposed the iPhone 5.
According to 9to5 Mac’s tipster an Apple employee was seen using the next gen iPhone in public. He immediately captured a photo as the device appeared to be similar to the rumors about design changes in iPhone 5.
The image actually doesn’t reveal much. However, it must be noted that the device is unlike any other iOS hardware available in the market. Apple has acknowledged the fact that products have to undergo real-world testing. iPhone in particular has to undergo rigorous testing as the performance of battery and cell tower switching can only be analyzed in real situations.
What do you think? Could this be iPhone 5 / 4S? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
