It could still be fake... or it could be a mock up. Companies do this more and more instead of taking product photos over and over.
Having done a bunch of work for Apple, I can tell you that they often use mocked up illustrations, not actual photos, of their products. If you're looking at a "photo" of an iPhone or iPod on their site or in an ad, it's almost certainly a mockup.
I call it a fake because it looks like someone took, in an editing program, a pencil matched to the blues background, and went up and down up and down underneath every single setting name to cover up the name that was there before. do you really not see that? It's not blatantly apparent, but apparent enough that it looks like a kid using Ms paint.
