Ahead of the iPhone 5 release date a prototype iPhone 5 handset, sporting an iPhone 4-esque form factor, has reportedly leaked online. But is it the real deal or another online fluke?
Apple’s next-generation smartphone handset has reportedly been caught on camera as Apple blog Apple.Pro points to a Weibo user who claims to have a prototype of the mooted iPhone 5 hanset.
The handset touted as the long awaited iPhone 5 is pictured sporting an iPhone 4-esque form factor and running an Apple test software not the iOS 5 operating system, expected to land on Apple's mooted fifth-generation smartphone.
Reportedly boasting a 5-megapixel camera and the A5 processor found in the iPad 2, the leaked handset appears more in line with the rumoured iPhone 4S handset that is claimed to be heading for release alongside the iPhone 5 as a budget iPhone device to target the hoards of affordable Android handsets in the market.
Recent iPhone 5 rumours have suggested the currently mythical handset will launch on August 16th not in September as previously thought and will come equipped with a 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording capabilities and a new slimmer form factor.
