In my humble opinion the iPhone has always been one of the best looking phones around, regardless the generation. But the recent leaks have left me baffled. Those white and rubbery-like strips along the back look beyond hideous to me.

So, are those placeholders for the final antenna enclosure material or is this the final design?

Can't be the final design. I refuse to believe that. Looks like the phone is wearing two thongs

Agreed. Jony must have been on the sauce recently if that's the final design.

Photos most likely of a fake (based on the 'iPhone' text [font doesn't seem right]).

Fake. I can tell by the 'iPhone' text (font not correct).


Unfortunately its been regarded as authentic by three major apple news sites :( so either its placeholder material or we are looking at the iPhone 6 aka the iPhone everyone will skip.

I hope it's not real because it looks absolutely hideous.

Unless Apple fired all their designers recently i'm skeptical.

There have been a bunch of images floating about that seem to share that design; I think it looks dreadful.

Man, I wish I had a link, but I've read that the back is supposed to be like the 5/5s, and that the backs we've been seeing have not had their tops and bottoms cut for the glass parts yet. 

 

But then again, this time last year, the completed backs of the 5c and 5s (since it was just a 5) were leaking. http://www.phonearen...Phone-5_id45516

Well, I thought for sure that some elements of Windows 8 were placeholders too, but that's how it shipped. It's not out of the question to see Apple create a tacky looking product too.

The photos could also be of a bad/prototype batch.

If history is any indicator with Apple product leaks, I'll reserve judgement till the finished product is shown. Remember when the iPhone 4 leaked and everyone was complaining about the un-Apple look and the antenna breaks. Today I consider the iPhone 4 the best looking of all the iPhones.
