Is this the iPhone 5?

Is this the iPhone 5? [photo]

With the next iPhone 5 potentially just a few weeks away, 9to5Mac has stumbled upon a picture which is believes may be the next iPhone out in the wild.

They received this photo from a train and it makes sense that Apple would be testing on this type of environment, as this would do a lot of cell tower transferring. While the shot isn’t super clear, it definitely doesn’t look like any current iOS device. The tipster top 9to5:

“Almost EVO-like” in screen size, this iPhone also appears thinner than the current iPhone 4 but also wider. The edges are rounded metal like the edges of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 but could still function as an antenna. The back is a curved/tapered glass or plastic. He couldn’t tell but if he had to guess he’d say glass. He said it looked too amazing to be built by anyone besides Apple (fanboy!).

If this is really the next iPhone (and that’s a big “if”), it would fit some of the rumors that the next Apple smartphone would have a larger screen. Apple normally tests its upcoming phones in the wild but it goes through great pains to keep it out of view, so it can hide things in cases. The last iPhone was leaked months before it was officially announced and it being tested in the wild with a modified case may have made Apple miss some of the “Antennagate” issues.

What do you think friends? Is this the iPhone 5? What do you think of the design?
