This Picture Was Taken By the iPhone 5

Originally discovered by PocketNow, the image below seems to have been taken using the upcoming iPhone 5. And unlike other leaks and rumors that are fake, this happens to be real. Why? Because the EXIF data from the image has some data that doesn’t match with the Camera model it was taken from.

The photo was uploaded on Flickr and supposedly taken by the iPhone 4, but the EXIF data says otherwise. As PocketLint states;

This (very attractive) photo claims to have been taken by an iPhone 4, but the rest of its EXIF data tells a different story: although the image has been cropped to 2235×2291 (5.12 megapixels), the original picture was a much larger 3264×2448 — or just shy of eight megapixels. What’s more, the lens was recorded as a 4.3mm f/2.4, which is closer to that of a point-and-shoot than the iPhone 4′s actual 3.85mm f/2.8.

The iPhone 4s 5 megapixel camera has a f/2.8 lens, whereas this photo’s data shows it as f/2.4 and it was taken on August 22. That’s not the most interesting thing, however. This delicious meal was the lunch of an Apple Engineer and was taken inside Cupertino’s Apple Headquarter or at least that’s what the location data from the picture says. There’s been a long running rumor that the iPhone 5, which should be out this October, will sport an 8 megapixel camera. So could this be the first photo from an iPhone 5? Well, all the evidence points to Yes. And interestingly, the original photo was removed from the Flickr account of the Apple Engineer, which is always a good thing.

Here is the same image, modified and the curve of the plate to reveal some more details. It was worked on by Brandon of TIMN(This is My Next).

You can clearly see that the person taking the picture with a mobile phone. Could it be the iPhone 5? Let’s hope so!! Read more here.
