A Chinese firm has already created a knockoff of what is supposedly the next iPhone. As reported by the French site NowhereElse.fr [Google Translate], an Android phone called the Goophone i5 was designed to look like the leaked images of the next iPhone.

Though the new iPhone is expected to be taller vertically, the Goophone sports a 940x640 3.5" screen, a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.3 megapixel front camera. Unsurprisingly, no pricing or availability information on the Goophone is available.

..which is exactly why Apple has been leaking these parts themselves. The new iPhone is going to have a totally different look to this.

I just cannot believe that Apple would start to haemorrhage parts in the volume and quality (image) that we've been seeing, especially after Tim's statement to double down on security.
