Yet another round of prototype iPhone images have been leaked?
Only a few days ago since we first saw new iPhone images out of Vietnam, there are now even more pouring out with accompanying videos to truly give you more face time with the upcoming next generation iPhone. Even though it's unclear if the latest round of leaked materials are from the same source from the ones seen last week, the inclusion of video this time around only adds to the surreal bubble burst of next generation iPhone leaks we've been all too accustomed in experiencing for the better part of the last month. It's tough to say if it's the same exact iPhone unit we saw last week, but all of the clear and detailed images point to the reality that it is. Generally there would be a minimal amount of leaked information regarding the iPhone as we head into WWDC, but it has become too transparent that things are going to be different this time around. In the mean time, check out the latest set of images speculated to be the next iPhone in the flesh.

I'm wondering if these videos were shot from a cell phone... presumably a HTC phone because of the sticker.

hey i just have 1 question so if the upcoming iphone does come out with at&t and has a front facing camera will we be able to make video calls over their 3G ? AND NO im not saying video share i mean the real video calling were u can see the person ur talking to and there able to see u.. or would we have to be connected to wi-fi? please i just want to know because from what i heard in other places like europe they can make video calls on their phones over 3G .. so im wondering will it be like this over here in the US? or is at&t going to block video calling on their network?

i doubt at&t will allow true video calling over their network namely because it cannot safely support it yet. you would either have to jailbreak the iphone for 3g video calling or be on wifi if you dont want to jailbreak it.

I actually think they will give it a try over the 3G. I don't think it will require jailbreaking. It might not be available on the network at the beginning, as I'm sure AT&T will need to prepare their network for it, but I think it could possibly be later (like MMS...haha that reason was complete crap though). I think they will observe how well Sprint and HTC do with their functions, even though it hasn't yet been completely announced that there will be video calling. I'm sure there will be something that will allow this though for it. I mean, most might see this as an iChat format, where we will be able to make those video calls to each other like on MacBooks. But I think the main reason for the iPhone's front camera is for video PHONE calls. I think they want to step it up with this feature. I don't think they are meant to go through clients like AIM and would rather follow a cellular network feature.

if they are it wont happen this year. however, I'm sure a third party app like skype or qik will offer some kind of video chat conference.they already have it out for sprint it's just not released it. it will be done via qik for sprint.

There is no way apple would have allowed all this info to get leaked. One misplaced phone is believable, but 3?? I guarantee this was an intentional leak by apple to deter sales from the EVO and Incredible

Those pics/videoes/specs would not stop anyone from getting an EVO.

Very true. I also think Apple having their announcement after the release is a bad idea as well, since many people will be signing contracts to Sprint. Only us phone fanatics really pay attention to the Apple rumors, like this one, and know about the WWDC event, unlike everyone else who isn't as interested in these topics. I'm for sure not going to purchase the Evo the day it comes out and wait it out till at least August since there is so much planned for June. It's crazy with all the rumors going around. The one I'm excited about is this "Project Emerald"...

the leak is also hurting 3G and 3GS iPhone sales because everyone and their mom knows a new iPhone is just around the of the reasons why android was able to outsell the iPhone in Q1...i ordered a new computer yesterday and asked the apple agent whether he knew about the new iPhone...his response is that "the whole thing is a joke and everyone's falling for it", well Vietnam was also a source for the leak of the recent White Macbook refresh and was dead on in the specs...

I am sorry Bro testman22 apple cant deter sales from the Evo. they are two different phones and OS. Evo will sell regardless of whats out there trust me

your completely wrong in the sense that you believe someone cant switch over from liking android to liking apple OS

your completely wrong in the sense that hes NOT saying ppl cant switch over... hes saying that the iphone 4 wont affect the sales of the EVO. Not only is it a different OS, different specs, different carrier... but its 4G and its whats out now (well next month). Sure some might hold off for something else upcoming but overall it wont affect whats happening now. Especially seeing that the next gen iphone hasn't even been officially announced yet. And even if it had been announced, the Evo is all around more attractive. Its practically the best phone (in the US) to date and that status alone is enough to pull in sales.

I speak for a lot of people when I say that PEOPLE DON'T CARE, I love APPLE and yes I might even buy it but enough already. Its going to come out sometime next month. Lets leave it at that, gosh...THIS PHONE IS NOT GOING TO BE SOMETHING INSANE THAT WILL CHANGE THE WAY WE LOOK AT PHONES LIKE THE ORIGINAL IPHONE. Just features and even some of the newest phones have better of.... HTC incredible....8mp camera? IPHONE 4G-5 MP, its like all of these websites copy and paste one article and change some words and PUFF, you got phonearena, phonedog, cnet, gizmodo, should I continue?

Yeah, it is getting a little old, and I suspect the hype from web sites such as this will only help APPLE. My wife has the iphone and I love to play games on it or watch movies - very clear screen. But, I want a windows-type phone and ANDROID has lots of apps with better internet browsing and easier to unlock and modify the ROM with....just depends on the money I want to spend.

11. ILOVEIPHONE25 unregistered

The windows 7 will rock because they are requiring so much for companies. Its not like they can put crappy hardware on some phone and sell it with windows 7. Minimal 1gz snapdragon and thats minimum.

13. ilia1986 unregistered

But Windows 7 will not have multitasking, and even more importantly - it will not bo compatible with 6.5 apps. And considering that the amount of apps for 6.5 even to this day is miniscule, I think that we will be able to count the amount of windows 7 apps using only our fingers. Good platform + less apps than Android market = bad platform.

why wont it have multi-tasking, that is ridiculous. really, who makes these products without listening to the consumers.

Who really cares about Windows Phone 7?? Its the same crap over and over again. I have had several different windows mobile phones and have been dissapointed time and time again. There is no big difference in the Windows world. The apps are very limited, and you have to deal with microsoft if you have a problem. I am sticking with my Moto Droid, due to the fact that I have the ability to make it mine. It doesnt look like everyone else that has one, and windows is going down like the titanic. They havent released a decent phone since they started making windows mobile. There is no way that windows will be able to compete with the Android OS. Besides, why run a microsoft exchange server for thousands of dollars, when you can run a google cloud server for a fraction of the cost??

23. ILOVEIPHONE25 unregistered

windows mobile phone is by way the crappest software and OS I have ever seen. I am a tech guy and I had a hard time dealing with that shity ass phone. I don't want a damn user manual for some crappy phone. I went to the iphone and have never turned back. My question is why these companies but minimum hardware on these phones..New iphone is supposedly going to have 5 mp camera instead of the 8mp that is pretty much standard on the best smartphones. No multitasking on the new windows phone. The iphone isn't going to change its screen size...i rather have a 4.1 in screen.

One last post for me, I think that this could still be fake. Yes, there is a lot of these leaks, but seriously, when have we ever seen leaks as revealing as these? I could see the possible slip of the stolen iPhone incident (or the planned iPhone incident), but with these scattering over in Vietnam...they are definitely known for having copies of iPhones in Asia. No matter how legitimate it may seem, it really doesn't take that long to analyze the pictures put up on the internet and turn them into hardware for them China men ;P Why aren't these phones functioning in the first place? It seems like all these Apple phones being revealed have a problem with them. Remember, the phones have to connect to some sort of internet in order to be deactivated from Apple, unless if it was a prototype that was linked to Apple, but even then, why is the GB displayed when the first iPhone found has XX GB? And if it isn't a prototype, it should be fully capable to being able to run because if it is the real version, Apple would have to find out exactly which iPhone it was through a connection to a network. And why haven't they been interviewed about their finding of the phone? I dunno...this might be the real thing, but its very sketchy. :\

I would have to agree with you on this one. Every posting of the "leaked" iPhone has never been past this stupid Inferno screen. Show me pictures of what the actual OS looks like already, dont leave me in the dark. I want to see this phone perform in the browser, apps and everything else we look for in a phone. I am a huge fan of the fast browser on the Moto and HTC Droids, I like the fact that Blackberry has yet to step up their game to give us a faster browser. So with this new iPhone, I want to see the browser. I have a feeling that most of these "leaked" iPhones are just shells with a minor program to give you this Inferno screen, it never says loading into OS. Give us more and then we will start to believe. Until then, this phone is a figment of your imagination, and will be completely different once Apple decides to announce it to the world.
