One of the so called reliable sources regarding leaked Apple information claims that, currently, there are three different iPhone 5 prototypes.
Out of these three models, one seams to stand out more than the others, by the fact that it is pretty similar to a regular iPhone 4, but it also has a slide-out physical keyboard.
The slide-out mechanism is pretty popular amongst smartphones, however it is pretty hard to believe that Apple is going to change the iPhone this way. And that is because the iPhone has become famous thanks to its exclusive touchscreen, and Apple made us believe that they hate buttons, of any kind.
About the other two iPhone 5 prototypes it is said that they are pretty similar to the current model ( maybe just a bit smaller in dimensions ).
So, if one of these two prototypes models are going to become the next iPhone, maybe we should not expect significant changes, besides an 8 MP photo camera and improved battery autonomy.
And, we cannot help but wonder: if Apple is going to release the iPhone 5 in this summer of this year, why they are still testing three prototypes? Maybe they haven’t made up their mind regarding the final product ? Or these are only traps created by Apple to keep the truth about the real iPhone 5 smartphone a secret ?
