  • Early Leak of iPhone 3G S Unboxing Pics!


    A week early and pictures of the iPhone 3G S being unboxed have already surfaced! The gallery (below) includes images of the iPhone 3G S box, a rear shot with 32GB visible, and images of the screen with Compass and Voice Control.

    There is a bit of weirdness with these pics. First of all the bezel looks misleadingly gold. With careful inspection one can see that some images the bezel looks gold, some it looks chrome, and the box pic it appears to be half chrome half gold. The goldness is most likely bad reflections or improperly set white balance on the camera.

    More weirdness. These images are watermarked by Engadget. iClarified claims they pulled the images from an Engadget gallery at a url which is blank at the time of this writing. Engadget 中国版.

    Regardless, enjoy the pics below!

      Instead of spending sooo much money on a new iPhone, I'd rather get a MacBook.

      While I would have liked some appearance changes (matte black case primarily, even with silver ring) keeping the same form factor is a big benefit for purchasing accessories.

      I can order my Vaja case now (if their web site works (and why don't they still sell Rivet???)) and have it a lot sooner than waiting for new development.

      We could start by removing the cheap and nasty plastic casing.

      And replace it with a metal one so we could have no reception?

      There might be - but not with the design of the iPhone.

      and stealth congrats on getting it. ^^
      i still have to wait cuz ****** rogers is not accepting preorders. :/
      Rogers accepted my pre-order!! I didnt do it online, but I called my local store. First asked if they were carrying the new iPhone 3GS on Friday and they said yes and then I asked if they are accepting pre-orders and he said for sure.

      Just call them on the 17th and they will put one aside for me. Said the only thing is, I have to make sure I am there early on the 19th and not wait until the afternoon as they will only hold it so long. No problem there. I will be calling on the 17th.

      I am in a smaller town close to the GTA, so I dont expect a huge line or anything.

      iPhone 2G gets better reception than iPhone 3G and that's a metal back.

      I think there are other materials than metal and crappy polycarbonate, I'm not too sure though.

      Oh sweet that's right I forgot we got a compass and now we can shoot HIGH QUALITY VIDEO LOL you people are effin dumb sometimes getting all hyped up over dum sh.it! You wanna shoot HIGH QUALITY VIDEO go buy a damn VIDEO CAMERA! Also WHAT THE FUK do you people honestly need a damn compass for? Are you fu.ckin kidding me

      Hell even this mock up looks WAYYYYY nicer than a POS 3GS

      If you don't like the iPhone why are you posting on an iPhone thread, on a site targeting the iPhone community? You said the key word, "rumor." They are rumors for a reason, and we already at 50% of the rumor are just that and will never been on the next release of the iPhone. Anyone who is semi-educated could figure out Apple would not put a camera on the front or make a bigger screen. The iPhone is the iPhone for a reason and the I don't see Apple ever changing the size of the screen. Also, from Apple's past we know they will not put everything that they can into the phone, they have to give you a reason to buy the new one, just like they have with all of their other products.

      Second that mock up looks hideous. The home key looks like it's ready to fall off. On top of that smaller is not better, it just means it will break quicker.

      I will finish by saying, once again, if you don't like the iPhone then don't look at a site dedicated to the iPhone!

That's why Apple's motto is to "THINK DIFFERENT" cause they wanna target the "SLOW PEOPLE" who aren't all that bright. Cause they know people like you will buy anything!

      Also I understand that your "SLOW" but seriously in case you didn't notice, this is a PUBLIC FORUM ABOUT IPHONE DISCUSSION! Are you mad that I'm tellin it like it is because you only want people who are dumb like yourself and who cheer on the new iPhone that way you can feel good and justify buying it? Your like a fat person who goes to fat person self help groups with other fat people and you all tell each other how beautiful you are and how important you really are in life even though everyone else makes fun of you!

      Like mikerlx, Apple could have at least even made the new iPhone as thin as the iPod Touch! What a joke! I guess maybe car manufacturers should start putting out cars that are EXACTLY THE SAME every year too right? Seeing as how there will always be some dum dum like yourself that will buy them anyways
      You just proved that you are the "dum dum". The only way you know how to defend yourself is by insulting someone else. Grow up!

      On that note, I won't just buy anything. If I see a value in it then I will purchase it. The iPhone 3G S has many upgrades, maybe not what everyone wanted to see. But, like I said before they are not going to dump everything into one product. The companies that do that don't stay successful. Yes it's true some of these features can be done now, but when something is integrated into the OS it just runs better. And, lets not forget the faster processor and data speeds.

      Let's remember one thing, the iPhone is a phone and the iPod Touch is an iPod. There are more pieces that go into a phone than an iPod. If they made it as thin as the iPod Touch the device would not work as well as it should.

      I'm not mad. I just don't understand why you would waste your time in a forum if you have no interest in item being discussed. All you want to do is come here and tell people why the iPhone is no good. You are not adding anything.

      Newsflash for you: Some of us on this site are *gasp* not Apple fanboys.

      I guess you think that if we post on these forums, we have to praise Apple, the iPod and the iPhone 100% of the time, or else we're not adding anything to the discussion?

      The 2G has plastic over it's one aerial - the 3G has exactly the same GSM aerial but also a second aerial for 3G - if it had the same back as the original it would get the same 2G reception but no 3G reception. If you turn off 3G you will get the same reception with a 3G iphone as you would with a 2G, 3G reception comes from seperate transmiters so may vary and here in the UK O2's 3G network is not very good - which is why I am on T-Mobile.

      I am no expert on plastics (funnily enough my father is, I think I'll have to have a chat with him) but polycarb is a remarkable material. Short of carbon fibre (which would boost the cost considerably) I can't think of anything better.

      I would like to point out that I have had no problems with my back, no cracks or anything and I mishandle my phone! So I guess I'm not sure why people make such a big deal about the back, if I had problems my views would probably be different....

      Yeh, I realized after I posted that my iPhone has a black plastic piece at the bottom

      I really want to go back to T-Mobile but all my mates are on O2 so we get free calls between each other and O2 offer stuff like Bluebook and unbranded and unlocked phones(expect iPhone) which other networks don't. I had a Nokia N95 8GB on O2 before I took the sim and put it in the iPhone and that NEVER lost 3G signal ever! I guess it's time to shell out 540 for a 32GB white iPhone 3GS.
