Up until now, the iPhone 5 has only leaked either as parts or as a dummy model. And although a working model has never made it out into the wild, M.I.C Gadget now claims that a genuine iPhone 5 was slipped out of Foxconn’s Jicheng factory and was caught on camera. While the purported device does appear thinner, slightly taller and has what appears to be a larger display, the mysterious iOS 6 boot-up message, sketchy-looking slope on its left bezel, chintzy home button and additional hole next to the relocated FaceTime camera suggests the device could just be an elaborate hoax. Is this iPhone 5 real or is it fake? Take a look at the “leaked iPhone 5” video down below.
