Next-gen iPhone found, said to be the real thing
posted by Ray S. / Apr 19, 2010, 10:13 AM
The device is now boxier, with the rear side now flat, instead of rounded. As it seems, the screen is about the same size (or slightly smaller), but with higher resolution (presumably 640x960 pixels).
The other new stuff includes a front-facing video call camera, bigger main camera lens (maybe 5MP?) with flash, Micro-SIM slot, instead of ordinary SIM and probably a secondary mic for noise-cancellation. The new iPhone seems to be only 3 grams heavier and equipped with about 16% bigger battery.

Mid 2011 for Commercially available LTE chipsets? That's funny cause my company that builds them have been texting them since October of last year, and just in the states we have built and SHIPPED already over 4.6 Million LTE chipsets to manufacturers for they're devices mostly for Vodafone UK and Verizon's 700Mhz C-Block. It's only April. Those chipsets we already shipped, and I think our outstanding order is still over 4 million more currently. Manufacturers are NOT going to sit on those chipsets for almost a year, I can almost guarantee LTE air cards will be out by the end of summer and handsets before christmas. My guess is Verizon and Vodafone are going to flip on there LTE very quickly and have expansive coverage immediately for the shock value, which is why manufacturers are ordering LTE chipsets for those spectrums like crazy. Manufacturers are not going to ignore 429+ Million Verizon and Vodafone customers and probably is being muscled by this corporation to release product now versus later otherwise I'd have a pretty relaxing summer.

testing* sorry there is no edit when replying. BTW about this IPhone shown above. My guess it's marketing people. It actually could be a fake prototype or real etc etc. Because of what I do I've talked to plenty of people in marketing when going to test sites etc. 70% of the time the manufacturer or phone carrier PLANTS the devices on purpose to build up hype. I remember years ago this lady that worked for Cingular's marketing team were the people that actually leaked images of the Moto Razr. It's all marketing people. No regular joes are getting a hold of this stuff early and giving you the inside scoop. It's the same people that want your money. Not always is true, but way more often than you think.

really? because he basically said "i dont care, its up to apple" and i rather have a high chance of always having 3g service, with a slight chance it'll be slow than supposedly having a "super fast network" that never seems to be around

I could've sworn that they already announced that it was going to be a GSM varient meaning that it was still an AT&T device. Keep dreaming Verizon and keep bashing the iphone in one breath and praising it in another.

Indeed, but it's not the actual iPhone hardware that is all the fuss, it's the iPhone OS and user interface that is so great! I'm not an iphone user but I''m familiar with the OS due to my 3g iPod and I just love that appstore it's so great and the games are "Incredible" non the less (Pun intended)! I'm a verizon wireless users I had the droid although it was a great concept I returned it to VZ due to poor call quality. Currently using a BB Tour until thursday when my Incredible arrives. One last thing; if Verizon does indeed get the next reiteration of Apples crown jewel I will be adding another line for it;)

Yea but can more than 6 people at a time do video conferencin? You know AT&T's reputation for bandwidth issues. Funny how AT&T fanboys try to pick out the most irrelevent features to try to seem superior...talkin while surfin, video conferencin. Two things that aren't really a major player when it comes to mobile usage.

I don't like this. At all. I love the 3G design. It's smoother more elegant. It's hard to believe apple would take a step back and design this. It's not unibody it's not sexy. There's also this one snag I have. Apple doesn't present things to the FCC this early because people would find out about it and their secrecy would be cancelled. But this device has the FCC logo on it. That's why the ipad wasn't released when it was announced. Well one reason. Jobs said it had to go to the FCC. So again. Why would it have the FCC logo? I seriously think this is a fake. For a few hundred dollars a guy can gut an iPhone 3Gs build this fake shell and place the 3Gs parts in it. The. Sell it for much much more to rumor hungry tech sites. It's a hustle. Well I hope I'm right. I love iPhone OS but this phone is ugly as hell.

I agree it's not aesthetically as pleasing as the current model. If you look at it though, it's pretty much exactly like the iPad. The iPad obviously has the domed shape back because of it's size, but the sides look pretty much the same as what we have here. I just hope they were smart enough to but the same processor as the iPad has inside this....

I don't envy the worker\tester who let this happen. I wouldn't be surprised if we will find his name as someone who has died on a car accident sometime.. Regarding the design - it looks like some goddamn nokia phone now. That aint a good thing. Sure, the iphone design grew old - but it was part of the things that seperated it from the rest.. But that is still not my primary concern. My primary concern is the screen size! Gizmodo says that the screen is even smaller than on the 3GS - and while the resolution has doubled - this is still not a good thing. I was honestly expecting a 3.7" or even 4" display. The bigger the better. If the screen is indeed smaller than the 3GS - I will wait for the 5th generation iphone - perhaps then Steve will fix this mistake.
