Video claims to show new iPhone chassis
With the expected introduction of the next-gen iPhone less than a week away, iPhone Portugal claims to have purchased the chassis of the new unit in China for an undisclosed sum. While it can't be determined if the frame belongs to a genuine Apple handset or a cheap Chinese knock-off, the piece of metal is said to be without any defects, but also without any stampings that trace it to Apple. There is also no difference between two separate chassis which is indicative of mass production. If you have ever wondered what an iPhone looks like stripped down to its most basic of parts, check out the pair of videos below.

I have never seen so many leaks for a phone in my life, especially when the manufacture tries to keep a lid on it

Neither have I, but I hope this means that the phone will be avaliable immediately after it is announced. I hoping for at most a one week wait.

yeah the more leaks i see the more i want to hope that apple just throws out something completely different. It doesn't look that nice imo... unless the iphone 4g does something groundbreaking (which is unlikely) i wouldnt get it over a 3gs. Not saying i'd actually get an iphone seeing that the evo pwns the iphone in every way... i still would like to see something different. and these videos are pointless. Who wants to see the frame of a phone. If your going to go out of your way to get and leak the iphone... at least show it fully constructed with the new os running because clearly the hardware is nothing to impress.

The only thing wrong with the EVO is that it's on a tiny, tiny network.

This is what happens when you let foreign countries have your product. China gets a hold of it. I mean, most American flags are made in China! What have we become?
