Whether it’s real or not is yet to be seen, but this is the first time we’ve managed to catch a glimpse of video coverage that actually looked legit. The parts were assembled together and displayed in live-action (as opposed to CGI, or graphical representations and mockups) for everyone to see.
Although we obviously cannot verify its authenticity, it does look very much like an Apple product. If it is fake, and this doesn’t turn out to be the design, then they’ve done a great job at creating a believable representation.
The back of the phone is two-tone, which somewhat surprises me, but doesn’t insult my intelligence of Apple’s design decisions. Their Macbook Pros, for example, are two-tone, whether you’re referring to the aluminum body and black keys, or the screen’s perimeter being black as well. It’s not entirely ridiculous to see this being the proposed design being manufactured, especially if Apple is looking to enhance the experience with a new charging system.
Also, as you likely noticed from the video, the phone clearly has a smaller dock connector, no headphone port on the top anymore, and the screen is noticeably larger (well, longer). Nothing else can really be concluded for sure based on the video, but it’s at least a design change, which will please a lot of people.
Some believe the iPhone look is getting dull. While I would generally disagree with them for the most part (since everything else about their phones aside from physical appearance on the outside gets upgraded nicely), I still welcome it.
What do you think of this? Is it legit? Do you think it’s a fake? If so, why? What do you like about it? Let us know in the comments below.
