New iPhone photos leak, showing off its larger screen
What we are looking at here appears to be the most complete leak of the new iPhone to date. The images come from KitGuru, who indicated that the photos are of a test assembly unit and were taken somewhere in “the Far East”. Of note is that the images show that the new iPhone body may be somewhat longer than the current version to support the larger screen. They also show off the new connector that has been expected on this year's iPhone, and it clearly will not work with current iPhone peripherals without some sort of adapter.

The images don’t show the usual tell-tale signs of forgery, so we see little reason to doubt them in that sense. Of course we don't know at what stage of development this test assembly was made, so it may not reflect the final product exactly. At the same time, you don't start to test production until you are fairly far along in design development, so while it’s certainly possible that the new iPhone will deviate from these photos, it probably won't be by a huge amount.

Yes by todays standards it still looks fairly small. Also if this in fact the new iPhone design then its hasn't changed much at all except slightly bigger. Its still 'chunky' looking also. With IOS 6 introducing minimal changes and if the design above comes to be true then we have an iPhone 4$$ in all reality

Sigh. I was hoping for something that looked closer to the Photo-chopped concepts that had been making the rounds of rumor mills prior to the release of the 4S. If the production units look like this, it will definitely be deserving of being called the 4SS. Or maybe the 4S+ (Dunno).

iphone 4g?
it would be a brilliantly humorous way to slap everyone in the face for all the stupid rumor riots that have accompanied the iphone 4s and whatever the next one will be called

Naah, Apple will just call it the "new iPhone" like they did with the iPad. That way there's no discrepancy between their naming practices.

Att doesnt have 4g on its iphone Att just lies to there customers. The screen shows 4g everywhere yet it is not 4g. It is what att knows at 3.5g its slightly fast then 3g but def not 4g its just a Att scam to get people to think att is better then every other company. If apple could get there phones to 4g they would make it that way for all the companies it would be stupid to make it that way for just one. You can take an att iphone unlock it let it work with any other gsm company itll still show 4g on it yet it isnt 4g. I can put 10g on the top of my iphone if i want with it jailbroken it doesnt mean its 10g

Man u guys should know better than this... Think back when Jason Chen of gizmodo got the iPhone 4 prototype that was in fact the finished product. Apple was all over it legally remember? If this was the next iPhone it would be recovered by now, and as suit happy as apple is there would b hell to pay for not returning it, and letting it be known who has it. The next iphone will look different from the 4S, and the mockups. Trust me people this is not the next iPhone people, it's a fake. C'mon andro, and droid x Doug u guys r on top of ur tech game... U two of all people should know this. Fake Fake Fake!!!

You are right, apple wouldn't be quite if this was the real one. And one more thing, just look the "new" port picture, it made me laugh!

Exactly... Apple has a two year refresh cycle. The first year is an internals boost ram, storage, speed etc. the second year is a new design. 4-4S ends that two year run, now it'll be something different.

Naah, Jonathan Ive, the designer, said that he had a tough time, witch means that they went for a redesign of their products. I don't think they will stick to the same design. :)

That would be cool. I still love the old design but I always trusted his designs and think people aren't gonna be disappointed if decides to change.

Yeah it's more of the same just bigger. (Slightly!) It's actually getting pretty old now.

Definitely Meh. Right now, their notebooks (as in the retina MBP) are looking better than their handsets, if this what ultimately ships.

Can Apple not come up with new designs anymore? It looks more like what the iPhone 4S should have been.

Why would they? They have aruably the most well-known phone in the modern world. They want to keep it with basically the same design so at a glance it is easily identifiable as an iPhone.
