Leaked Foxconn Images Allegedly Give Us Our First Look At The iPhone 5S [Update]

Is this the iPhone 5S? Leaked images purported to come out of Foxconn are claimed to show Apple’s next iPhone, and it looks pretty much identical to the iPhone 5, although some have noted that there’s at least one small change: the iPhone 5S uses the iPhone 4S’s softer vibration component instead of the louder rotating one used in the iPhone 5.

iPhoneinCanada.ca speculates that these images are coming from the same factory that manufactures the shameless Android knock-off of the iPhone 5 called the Goophone, so there is a strong chance of forgery.

Update: And… in fact, as Steve from Nowherelese.fr points out on Twitter, it’s almost definite that this is an image of a Goophone-like knock-off and not the iPhone 5S.

Reports have suggested that the iPhone 5S would start production in December to get a better handle on the supply constraints that plague everyiPhone launch. If true, it’s not too early to start seeing iPhone 5S leaks… this one just doesn’t appear to be a real one.

    Its such a weird situation when the crappy clone is exposed because it includes what has become an unheard-of luxury like an SD slot.

    I wouldn’t say it’s a luxury.
