Is This the iPhone 5?

By

A new video is circulating that claims to have uncovered a piece of the iPhone 5. It looks legitimate and matches the rumors of a slightly larger body and screen size. But is this the real deal? AppleInsider thinks it might just be, noting that the supposed iPhone 5 part that's shown in the video matches the aluminum backplate that surfaced last month.

The YouTube clip comes from ETrade Supply , a wireless parts company.

During the video, the demonstrator is unable to confirm if the part is real, but says that it "really looks like an iPhone component," adding that it has the official Apple and iPhone logos while showing their placement on the backplate. "Maybe it is a new iPhone 5 component. I don't know. It has so many different designs; the bottom, the side case, the [upper] part…"

When doing a side-by-side comparison to the iPhone 4S, it is clear that (if this component is real) the iPhone 5 will be a longer but thinner device.
