A Chinese company may already be knocking off the iPhone 5, even before Apple has officially announced the actual iPhone 5, according to a new report.
The report comes to us from the French website No Where Else (NWE). This week the site posted pictures and video of a smartphone called the "Goophone i5" that looks remarkably like leaked photos of the iPhone 5 that have been popping up on the Web all summer long.
One notable difference: the Goophone i5 has what appears to be a 3.5 inch screen, rather than the 4 inch screen most people are expecting from the new iPhone 5 model.
The company producing the Goophone has also replaced the Apple logo with a cute little bee.
"I do not endorse any manufacturing and marketing of counterfeit whatsoever but I am still admiring face to the reactivity of Chinese when it comes to anticipating the release of a new product," writes Steve Hemmerstoffer, founder and editor in chief of No Where Else.
