An anonymous case manufacturer has been showing off a physical mockup of the iPhone 5 at Europe's IFA consumer electronics fair this weekend. While it doesn't tell us anything we don't already know, this video from the Verge does a good job of highlighting the differences we're expecting to show up between the old and new device.
Of course, there's no telling whether the design we're expecting to see next week is entirely genuine, and at any rate this is only a dummy shell which shows off the possible aesthetic features of the new device. But apparently the case manufacturer is confident enough in the rumours that it's already got its products for the new device in production so they're ready to ship as soon as possible. One thing's certain: we don't have too long to wait now before we find out for certain what the next iPhone will be like. [Verge]
