While the inevitable iPhone 5 reveal is right around the corner, some companies cannot wait (and already have Android versions). Others, however, are happy to produce—and sell you—a mock-up.

If you want to impress your friends (and really, who doesn't?), then here are a handful of fully assembled iPhone 5 mock-ups that are available throughout China. Prices range from around US$5 to around $32.

As MIC points out, the mock-ups are intended for case makers so that they'll be able to have their products ready; they show a two-tone back, a larger 4-inch screen, redesigned speakers, and a mini Dock Connector. The mock-up seems to indicate that the iPhone 5 will be thinner than the current iPhone. These mock-ups seem to indicate that Apple sucks at keeping secrets.
