While Apple fans anxiously await the next iPhone, us folks on the Android side of the fence can get ahold of the new design a bit early thanks to the crafty knockoff skills of China’s black market electronics hounds. Sure, the final design isn’t actually known, and this so-called Goophone I5 uses a 3.5-inch display as opposed to the rumored 4-inch screen of the real fifth-gen iPhone, but how can you resist that cute little Honeycomb logo? The two-toned iPhone design that has appeared in multiple leaks is in tact, but other specs are absent. We understand the money isn’t there, but its surprising Apple has made no attempt to go over the numerous Chinese knockoffs floating around there as part of their patent tirade.
