‘Leaked’ iPhone 5 Video Reveals Unexpected New Design [Video]

A new parody video pretending to be a leaked official iPhone 5 promo shows that the much anticipated Apple product is just a … camera.

Dear iPhone fans, you’d better stop obsessing over the new details of the next generation smartphone, as everything has been already revealed.

A few days ago, New York comedian Adam Sacks uploaded a video to YouTube with the tantalizing title “LEAKED  Official Apple iPhone 5 Promo Video- Keynote 2012.”

The ‘iPhone 5 promo’ of about 2 minutes duration shows Avery Monsen, Author of All My Friends Are Dead and some other books, who demonstrates an iPhone 5 camera (purporting to be the iPhone) and explains what it is good at, which is taking picture of food.

“Before designing the iPhone 5, we studied how customers use their iPhones and we discovered something interesting: People only use iPhones to take pictures of their food,” says a young man in the video identified as a vice president of design for Apple.

“They are sad and alone and so they use pictures of food to create an illusion of a fulfilling life,” The Los Angeles Times quotes him as saying.

Following that the Apple’s rep debuts the iPhone 5, which looks like a camera, not a phone as expected by everyone. He reveals some data and then adds: “These pictures look so good that nobody would ever imagine you lie awake at night wondering why you can’t feel happiness.”

The ‘Apple’s VP’ goes on, revealing that Siri has been redesigned s well. Her primary purpose? Yep, you’re right: to put fun captions on your food photos. “Chickpea salad. Nom, nom, nom. I am happy.”

The real iPhone 5, expected to sport a 4-inch screen, is expected to be announced on Sept. 12 and is reportedly scheduled to go on sale on Sept. 21.

However, iResQ suggested that a second wave of iPhone 5 launches, “for international markets not included in the Sept. 21 launch, will come in early October, likely on Oct. 5”.

Meanwhile, fuelled by the phenomenal success of the iPad and iPhone, Apple Inc. has officially become the most valuable company in the world.

The market value of the company, which is its stock price multiplied by the number of outstanding shares, reached $622 billion in midday trading, beating out Microsoft (MSFT), the previous record-holder, which peaked on Dec. 30, 1999.

Apple is now worth about $200bn (54 percent)more than the world’s second biggest company, Exxon Mobil. The oil major is worth a mere $405bn.

“Everyone loves a winner; if you play the quick trade be careful,” said Howard Silverblatt, senior index analyst at S&P Dow Jones Indices in emailed comments. “If you are an investor, check the fundamentals and business plans, and avoid the hype in your decision.”

The recent rise in Apple’s stock price has been fuelled by expectation that anew version of the iPad will be launched in September.

Analysts predict that with iPhone 5, Apple seems to have the intention of hitting the market with a bang. As Slashgear predicted, with the new iPhone, “Apple will bring the device on so quick you won’t have time to decide if you actually want it or not – you’ll have to buy it!”
