The iPhone 4 was released just this year, and it goes without saying that there is an iPhone 5 in the works. Unfortunately for Apple, it isn’t the fruity company themselves who have come up with this next iteration but rather, a Chinese manufacturer who has cloned a device that has yet to exist (officially). Of course, this isn’t the first time that something like this has happened as the Apple iPad also suffered from a similar fate, and you can bet your bottom yuan that it won’t be the last time, either. Dubbed the iPhone 5, this cloned handset will come in a piano black finish that is guaranteed to attract far more fingerprints that you’d like, although it has slimmed down some bit by being thinner than the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4. It is touted to retail for slightly more than a Benjamin, and as with any other good Shenzen-originated phone would, packs a dual SIM card slot, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, Java support, a built-in camera and a flash light. Expect a flurry of activity from the legal eagles at Apple’s nest to commence in due time with the existence of this…travesty.
