Could be a Goophone. I understand why they'd cover up the numbers on the back, but why the apple logo?

I feel like it isnt a real iphone because the holes at the top of the screen dont match up with the iphone 5 screen video. also the screen is blacker and the home buttons looks really deep. I dont know anymore...

People are stupid. thats a goophone i5 model. it has a mini usb for charging android os. check your facts, apples not careless enough to "leave and iphone 5" lying around.

If thats the new iphone I'm so glad I didnt wait for that. Its the same thing just stretched longer a half a inch and with a new connector so all your old ipod/Iphone related stuff wont work with the new one how fail is that. Galaxy Note ftw.

Not only will it look the same, it will also be functionally almost identical. Dispite this (and an exhorbitant price tag) people will hurl their iPhone 4 in a landfill and join the queue of lemmings on the cliff top.
 
Its a real iphone its probably an engineering sample and the numbers in the back cant be shown because it will identify whoever leaked it but theres no way Chinese Kirf phones can have those graphics thta ios has like the fade in and out of the appl logo and + it said I cant be activated ... means there are not activation tickets yet because its not out yet ....

Great news everyone, Apple seems to have made a screen that gets darker and loses all reflections when turned on : P
