Leaked photos reveal cheaper version of Apple iPhone 4 to be introduced Tuesday
Gizmodo's Brazilian site was able to get someone inside one of Foxconn's Brazilian factories. The plant (inside the plant) was able to snap pictures of what he alleges is a new Apple iPhone model in the midst of being produced. The phone is code named  "N90A" and indicates that the model is a cheaper version of the current Apple iPhone 4. The GSM version of the Apple iPhone is "N90" while the CDMA variant is "N92". The addition of the "A" on the end of the code would seem to indicate that the model that was pictured is a variant of the GSM flavored Apple iPhone 4.

If "N90A" sounds familiar to you, it is because we recently reported that the code showed up in Apple's inventory system. The code is alleged to represent a lower cost Apple iPhone 4S model that will be separate from the fifth-generation iPhone model expected to be introduced during Apple's press event on Tuesday at its Cupertino campus. The use of the "N90" code shows that this model is not going to be different than the Apple iPhone 4 except for some minor, but important updates, which are represented by the "A" at the end of the code. While some speculate that the Apple iPhone 4S will be a lower priced 8GB model of the current iPhone, others believe that the iPhone 4S will basically look the same as the current model, but will have an upgraded A5 dual-core processor under the hood, and an 8MP camera on back. That would be an improvement over the current single-core A4 processor and the 5MP camera currently on the phone.

Yesterday, we told you that some information found hidden in the current beta version of iTunes revealed a reference to an Apple iPhone 4S. iPhone 4S covers have also apparently been received by AT&T along with cases for the iPhone 5. It looks more and more as though Apple will introduce both an Apple iPhone 4S and an Apple iPhone 5 on Tuesday. In the meantime, the phones that were the subject of the photographs taken inside the Foxconn factory turned out to be rejects, unable to pass Apple's strict requirements.
