iPhone 5 leaked in China

The title of the post says it all. 9to5Mac reports that a Chinese website has leaked out images of what looks like an iPhone 5 running on China Mobile’s 3G network.

If the above posted leaked image is the real deal, then there are two reasons for the Chinese nation to be excited for:

  • China Mobile is finally playing host to Apple’s high selling iPhone.
  • China will be getting iPhone 5 in the first shipment along with US and UK, as rumored earlier.

Some factors that add weight to this leaked image being that of a real iPhone 5:

  • It has a baseband version of 06.10.01, which hasn’t been released yet.
  • IMEI number missing.

Evaluation or prototype iPhone devices have in the past carried these attributes, so we might be onto something here. But if this is indeed the iPhone 5, it means we are stuck with the same old iPhone 4 form factor and we won’t be getting an edge to edge screen or a larger more beautiful design like this.
