    Question [2014-02-12] PHOTOS: Next iPhone?

    Folks,

    A Twitter account suddenly appears with a bunch of intriguing photos... (Click on the image for the larger size)














    What do you think about these photos? Looks legit, eh? I think if it turns out to be the next iPhone, Samsung and Apple are copying each other However, some have already called the front assembly a fake with further analysis.

    The next iPhone 6 supposed to have a 5 inches display and gorilla glass on. Rumors said it's so strong and tough you wouldn't need a case for it. But we will see when it comes out later this year.

    This clearly looks like someone photoshopped a iPhone home button on to a Samsung phone. Also, what's with all the fake blurriness?

    Over at macrumors, they have been discussing all the fakery that seems to be present in the photos.

    Update: A few readers have pointed out why they believe these images to be fake:repeating textures, wrong font, copied texture.

    I'll just say that people thought the iPhone 4 images were fake (Apple wouldn't show the screws, etc.). Also, have any leaked images that were widely reported on sites like The Verge ever not true? I seem to remember every image we have seen that actually got traction ended up being legitimate.

    I agree on the fuzziness. Why are "leaked" photos almost always blurry? Even third-rate spies always manage to take clear photos of whatever they are photographing yet those sneaking secret iPhone pictures cannot seem to manage the use of auto-focus.

    FAIL!

    Looks like it goes beyond fuzziness. The person that did the photoshopping did things like copying the exact smudged fingerprints on both the front and the back of the phone and reused smudge patterns from a previous mockup.

    There are always lots of fakes that get attention.

    Time to close down this turkey of a thread. Clearly unsubstantiated and bears no credibility.
