Is this taken from an iPhone 5?


The following picture looks like Sushi right?

You are correct but what is interesting is the device this picture was taken with. While the EXIF data will tell you it is an iPhone 4 that took this picture, sharper eyes saw that the original size of this picture was close to 8MP that was later cropped to 5MP. As we all know, the iPhone 4 does not have an 8MP camera fueling the argument that this image is from the next iPhone. Score for

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.

And guess what? The image has been pulled from flickr by an Apple Software Engineer.
