So is this the next-generation iPhone's aluminum frame/back? The detail parts in this video look entirely consistent with last week's 9to5Mac reveal of spy photos showing the purported next-generation iPhone's front digitizer screen. The only difference in this video is that the aluminum frame is anodized in a smoke color, as opposed to the bare aluminum as shown in the aforementioned photos.
The interesting thing to note here is that the aluminum band is approximately identical in thickness to the present iPhone 4/4S's stainless steel band, yet since the purported iPhone 5 design will not sport a (breakable) glass back plate (thank goodness), then the overall thickness of the device will reduce in thickness - presumably by approximately the same thickness of the present glass back plate, plus a little bit more to account for the thickness of the aluminum bottom.
So what do you think? Is this the REAL deal? Keep in mind that, so far, all the exposed "evidence" is quite consistent in minute detail - from detail drawings to physical components - so it definitely adds more credence to the potential that Apple has another leaky vendor somewhere in its supply chain.
