According to MicGagdet, a "tipster" told the Chinese tech media Vgooo.com that he "accidentally discovered an iPhone 5 prototype" while visiting a friend at Foxconn's factory in Jincheng, located in China's northern Shanxi province.
The tipster told Vgooo that the Foxconn worker "needs to finish some touch-up to complete the 3,000 iPhone 5 back panels every night in recent months."
The tipster added that the new Apple smartphone is thinner and taller. The tipster also took video of turning the device on which had the iOS 6 operating system included. An iPhone 4S device was next to the iPhone 5 to show a comparison.
