On Friday a few websites reported that an unfamiliar Apple phone had been spotted on a train in San Francisco. The phone was spotted and someone sent a picture was sent to 9to5Mac. The tipster said that he got a good look of the phone but the pictures don’t do it justice. The sighting was said to be an Apple employee on his way home from work in San Francisco, which adds up with Apple’s base in San Francisco.

The phone is possibly an iPhone 5 prototype which has been given to an employee for testing. It’s similar to how the iPhone 4 was leaked when an Apple employee left his prototype in a bar in San Francisco. The tipster said he had seen the case that 9tp5Mac had posted earlier, the green one, and the phone looked like it’d fit into that case. Slightly confirming his suspicions that the the phone may well be a prototype.

The prototype looked thinner than the current iPhone 4 and a little bit wider. The back of the phone is curved and is thought to be glass, it could’ve been plastic but knowing Apple it would most likely be glass.

The user was said to be trying to hid the Apple logo but the tipster did get a good snap below.

With only a month to the probable iPhone 5 announcement it seems like things are starting to hotten up and all will be confirmed soon.
