Physical iPhone 5 Prototype made in Germany

Oh boy. Germans made an actual iPhone 5 prototype based on the rumored tapered design.

iPhone 5 images and renders are common., part of the network took things a lot further. They developed a physical iPhone 5 prototype. says that the iPhone 5 prototype is based on CAD designs, hardware components, several leaked hints, cases and recent, believable mockups we created a three-dimensional computer model. This virtual model was then used to build a very detailed, true prototype that you can hold in your own two hands.

The process to create this prototype is the same that’s used to create the iPad. The back was machined from a sold block of aluminum, which was later treated with glass pearls to get the same slightly rough touch that we already know from the iPad.

This iPhone 5 mockup looks amazing. It will be very disappointing if Apple actually sticks to the iPhone 4 design. Right now we really only have a lot of evidence for an iPhone 4S and not really for the iPhone 5. The origin of the tapered design lies back in Spring of this year.

You can watch a video demonstrating the iPhone 5 mockup below (english subtitles).
