Allegedly real white iPhone running a modified iOS version leaks in Vietnam
posted by Daniel P. / Apr 19, 2011, 8:59 AM
From the country that leaked the iPhone 4 last year comes another Grand Slam one now. The same Vietnamese forum Tinhte had one of its members release pictures and video of a white iPhone, which he said is straight from Apple, running a customized version of iOS.
Now, we don't know if this is some milestone on the way to iOS 5, beta of iOS 4 or likely just a jailbreak mod, but the differences shown are a cool task switcher and some svelte search integration across the interface.
The forum member cuhiep claims that for him this is a 64GB "test version of next-generation iPhone with the new iOS that Apple plans to release this year" (translated from Vietnamese with Google Translate), but is not backing it up with any view of the settings screen, so take the whole endeavor with a believe-it-when-I-see-it attitude.
Considering the big leak last year, though, these guys have a proven track record of leaking Apple products, so we are waiting with baited breath for more info. These pictures, however, look exactly as if the phone is made with one of those aftermarket conversion kits you might have seen here and there, at least at the front.

I'm not good at English, but I'll try to explain what he says. Basically, he says that this Iphone has 64gb, there is a few slightly changes such as: the volume buttons do not have "-" or "+" sign , a change in the back camera ( he also says that both back and front cameras shoot better pictures than the black Iphone) , new screws in the bottom , new iOs with a convenient multitasking. He believes this phone "belongs" to a developer. In the second video, he puts a SIM into the phone. As you can see, it works. This is not a fake Chinese video, as far as I know, tinhte.vn is a very good site about technology, phone, computer,etc... in Vietnam.

Tinhte.com is the number 1 technology forum in Vietnam. Every post of them is believable, and made by the highly experienced members. They can't, and never make a fake video, for sure! And about this iPhone, I think it's the newest iPhone 4 White that Apple is about to sell, but the leaked version is just a demo one.

It couldn't be! I have to stress my words again" "tinhte.com" is the leading technology forum in Vietnam. As you can see, when Apple sales the white iPhone 4, it looks like the one in these videos, except the UI. Almost all newest technological product in Vietnam is leaked in tinhte.com first, followed by some other sites. They don't have time to fool readers. You're not a Vietnamese people, so you never know it!
