Is This A Video Of The iPhone 5 Booting Into iOS 6?

We see a lot of sketchy things pass by our desks leading up to major Apple announcements, and this one can certainly fit into that category as well. News is circulating that this particular video could very well be the next iPhone booting into iOS 6.

By the looks of it, the phone, which if real was probably smuggled out of Foxconn, boots into iOS, but stops just around the time the phone tries to authenticate Apple’s servers and the developer network checks. It seems like this particular phone and UDID aren’t registered with a developer account.

What do you think? Legitimate?

Frankly, while it may be an actual iPhone, I won’t believe it until Apple delivers a DMCA notice to YouTube to take the video offline.
