iPhone 4G / HD Update: ‘New’ Pictures were counterfeit model

By Alan Ng - Apr 18, 2010

We would like to think that none of you got your hopes up too much on those recent iPhone 4G/HD pictures that we told you about this weekend. It turns out that the pictures were fake and actually of a Japanese counterfeit iPhone.

As reported from BGR, the guys over at Engadget posted several photos on what was rumored to be an early ‘prototype’ of the upcoming device from Apple – expected this Summer.

Instead, multiple sources have confirmed that the unit was actually a fake iPhone device that is supposedly available to buy over in Japan.

While the actual device is thought to be fake, we can still hope that those specs we mentioned yesterday, such as 80GB of storage and a larger mic, turn out to be true.

Let us know your thoughts on this. Did you think the pictures were real?
