Apple’s (AAPL) next-generation iPhone becomes a reality in just over a week, and a staggering amount of leaks and rumors will surface between now and then. As is always the case, some will be real and some will be fake.

The mock-up is said to have been created for testing purposes by a third-party case manufacturer using actual specs and measurements from Apple’s upcoming sixth iPhone. In the video below, we can see exactly how it stacks up against the current-model iPhone 4S.
