UPDATED: Next-gen iPhone makes an appearance in Vietnam
We have already seen quite a lot of the next-gen iPhone, which got lost and found and... you know the story. Of course, many important questions remained unanswered, as Apple was relatively quick to get its lost gadget back. Unfortunately, there are still no new details that we can share with you about the next iPhone, but at least it seems like it's having some good time in Vietnam, where the guys from Taoviet have obviously gotten their hands on a 16GB model. The images are revealing the same design we witnessed before, so that's one more proof Steve Jobs will be holding this exact phone at WWDC. Enjoy the pics!

Apple iPhone 4G Preliminary Specifications

UPDATE: And of course, our Vietnamese friends over at Tinhte have now shot a rather lengthy video to present us the fourth-generation iPhone in detail. Unfortunately, the guy speaks Vietnamese so we couldn't really grasp what he is saying (although he seems to be pretty excited, just like us). Watch it below!

Oh dang...well I'm starting to actually buy into this. I thought it was just hype Apple was starting, but this looks just as legitimate. I'm gonna laugh if Apple does a complete 360 and makes a totally different looking phone haha. Aw, I wish they would make a white one too if its gonna look like this.

Screen looks exactly the same size, they really should make it bigger

I completely agree with you. They should have gone at least 4" in terms of display. Meh. I'm gonna skip this iPhone in favour of HTC EVO 4G :)

Actually if you notice - the screen is slightly thinner. And if it stays this way - I'll prolly skip it until 5th g comes out.

I can translate this video. I think there is nothing new.This is what he said: “Hello. This is the phone believed to be the iPhone 4G. It was brought to me by Mr. Phuong from Nam Phuong shop. He brought it from oversea. This phone looks longer as it is thinner than the iPhone 3G. It's tough, glass-covered on both sides and has 16gb memory. There are also some “XXXX” code on the back side. On the left side, there are 3 buttons. Two round ones are the turn up/down buttons the volume and the other is the turn on/off volume (mute key).”(?!) “The micro sim slot is on the right side.” (too noisy when he pointed at the bottom but I think he said sth about stereo speakers) “There is no back cover bolt so I can't open the phone. I might have to prize it up. The phone was locked. I think Apple gave a code to the owner of the phone. After a certain amount of time, if the code is not entered, the phone will be locked by itself, not by Apple.” (That's what he thought.) “This phone is 4mm (0.17inch) less than iPhone 3G in width but longer. Screen size is almost the same. This phone is also thinner than 3G one. However, it is uncomfortable to hold by hands for a long time due to its sharp sides.” (using a small stick to pick the sim slot) “This is the micro sim slot. I'm gonna put a sim into it.” (put the tray back into the phone. This guy is damn clumsy!) “Thanks for watching!” (The end) btw, this is the original link:http://www.tinhte.com/threads/406545-Tren-tay-dien-thoai-duoc-cho-la-iPhone-4G-cua-Apple?p=4388583# post4388583 . In this article, this phone is believed to be bought from American for 4000$.

It's too noisy in the background...but can you say no to BeeGees?? ...How deep is your love... To me, it looks like a dummy phone than anything else.
