The weeks leading up to a new line of iPhones has a similar silly season whereby rumors float about battery life, camera arrangement, displays, interior guts, and even the battery. Renders begin to show up online, too. Now there’s a hands-on– literally– video of the latest iPhone.
This video’s audio is Chinese, so that adds something to the atmosphere of the rumor because Apple’s iPhone is made in China. Zach Epstein drank the Kool-Aid.
The camera array on the back is likely a dead giveaway. The lenses in the triple-lens camera on the phone pictured in this video don’t look anything like the leaks we’ve seen that feature the iPhone 11 Pro’s camera design
Spit out the Kool-Aid, Zach. Hurry. The damage is irreversible!
It looks like there’s a metal frame that goes around the outside of the big square camera bump. Again, this is nothing like the iPhone 11 Pro design we’re expecting. Rumors suggest the back of Apple’s new iPhone 11 Pro will be a single piece of molded glass that includes the camera bump.
OK, now it’s time to see what Zach saw and figure it out for yourself. Is this the real iPhone 11 due out in a few weeks? Or, is this yet another deepfake to keep us guessing?
Eight seconds. Don’t blink.
The video is posted to YouTube and has the usual round of comments to go with it. Here are a few:
- Fake. Just before half way the phone flipped. Back is fake then when fliped it was iphone x or newer model
- Nice notch from 2018!!
- Hate freakin sound of speaker
- That’s hilarious …. I’d like to know what that song is
- Look at the mute switch it’s same as x and Xs
It gets worse from there. Deepfake is a thing. I like this iPhone 11 video better, but my Vietnamese just isn’t what it used to be.
