Leaked iPhone 4G shots, the real deal for sure
I posted earlier of an “iPhone 4G” posted by EnGadget the very phone has found its way to the hands over at Gizmodo and they think the mystery bar phone MIGHT just be the real deal.
Yes these are the same pictures which EnGadget had but Gizmodo was kind enough to outline what they think are the main features of the new ‘prototype’ iPhone:
• Internals components are smaller in size to accommodate the bigger and better battery
• 16% Longer battery life (improved battery time no matter by how much is always appreciated)
• Slightly less screen size than the 3GS (but better resolution)
• The back is entirely flat, made of either glass (more likely) or ceramic or shiny plastic in order for the cell signal to poke through.
• An aluminum border encircling the outside (which looks very good to the design)
• 3 grams heavier (not noticeable to those who are willing to pay for it)
• Front-facing video chat camera for taking pictures more conveniently and for making video calls.
• Different buttons for volume
• The Power, mute, and volume buttons are all metallic giving it a more comfortable feel.
• Enhanced display. it definitely has a bigger screen than the 3GS, size and resolution wise
• Better regular back-camera (lets hope for better quality pictures)
• Camera flash (lets hope its good)
• Micro-SIM instead of standard SIM (this could be a problem to people in other countries)
• A secondary mic for noise cancellation, at the top, next to the headphone jack (making it great for music lovers)
now your probably wondering “big deal anyone can make up random facts about the phone which won’t even turn on” but here is the kicker
Apple-connected John Gruber—from Daring Fireball—says that Apple has indeed lost a prototype iPhone and they want it back”
could this be a very clever marketing gimmick? did Apple want us to find the new iPhone but unable to power it? or is this part of a delayed April fools joke being played by Apple? The phone was cleverly disguised as an iPhone 3GS so that it would remain inconspicuous to the average iPhone owner but who knows what the real body of the 4G would even look like. Gizmodo took apart the phone and found the final job and the inner workings similar to that of a real iPhone which is quite compelling evidence that this JUST might be the real deal.
