iPhone 5 Cases Based on Lost/Stolen Foxconn Prototype? [Video]

M.I.C. Gadget is reporting that the basis for the massive influx of teardrop ‘iPhone 5’ cases is a prototype device lost by or possibly stolen from Foxconn.

A supplier told that site that a device had gone missing from the Foxconn factory in the Shenzhen Futian district. The prototype was disguised in a case to make it look like the current device. It was apparently a test model with a finalized iPhone 5 teardrop chassis but only had slightly modified iPhone 4 internals.

Take a look at the video below which shows a detailed comparison of the old iPhone 4 design and the rumored teardrop design.
