  • Possible Next Generation iPhone Pics Leaked


    Still months away from June when the next generation of iPhone is expected to be announced/released possible leaked pics of casing design are already popping up on the web.

    If these images are real it appears that the next generation iPhone will do away with the glossy casing and have a matte finish instead. The finish is textured for better gripping. It is also rumored that the rear casing is going to be returning to metal instead of the cheap plastic casing used in the iPhone 3g which has caused many complaints and class action lawsuits due to cracking. Also to note from the pictures it is probable that the next iPhone will have a 16 GB size option -- the question is will that be paired with a 32 GB or a 8 GB.

    In addition to the picture above a couple more shots of the possible casing:

I do hope the new iPhone doesn't have the same thing.
      Im with ya, id prefer my 2G over the 3G any day! Plus I dont even use me DATA on my 2G, im always using Wifi

      Then stick with your 2G.

      I would never have bought an iPhone without 3G but if you have enough WiFi where you are , good for you. I have WiFi at work and home but not when i'm out and about so I rely on HSDPA.

      Same.

      And I don't see what people complain about the 3G for. The plastic feels cheap? WTF? I've always hated the way the back of the original iPhone looked. If it was all one color like the 3G is, it would look good, but it's not. I hate how it's mostly silver and then it's just black at the bottom 1/4 or whatever. And after getting my 3G, my dad's old iPhone feels big and weird in my hand. Not to mention all the scratches he has on his and how much nicer mine looks even after dropping it on the pavement.

      iPhone 3G > iPhone IMO

      3G FTW!

      Muh....I dunno.

      You can buy those housings in about any color you want from Hong Kong/China.

      So that pic doesnt mean anything.

      unless theres a total hardware revamp ... front facing camera a higher megapixel camera theres no need to get a new one ... **** the hardware we need software upgrades ... mms, VIDEO CAMERA even tho cycorder is great an official one would always be a little better ... ZOOM on the camera, flash for safari ... these are all things that need to be addressed first ... the iphone will sell and is still selling apple is going to do with the iphone what they are doign with their imacs and notebooks .. redesign casing same guts and they get people to upgrade their old one to a new one even tho there is no difference ... i still have a powerbook g4 i love it and im glad i didnt upgrade to the intel when it came out bc its changed 3 times in the last 3 years

      Thats what I thought! Maybe thats to allow for a better battery and more memory?

      I am not certain apple will do anything right. The 2G was lacking (but still the best phone out there) and the 3G was a huge disappointment (a 2G with a faster network that isn't even available in most areas).

      I wouldn't get your hopes up for a flash when Apple can't even manage to put MMS, Video Recording, or Cut and Paste on their device.

      And lastly, The Camera Sucks Balls! It only really works in perfectly lit situations when there is absolutely NO movement! And putting it up in the top corner where you finger constantly obscures the lens? Why not put it in the center? COME ON APPLE!!!

      I think the other manufactures are getting closer and closer to toping the iPhone so Apple better get their shite together and offer the public a REAL upgrade! Faster, Bigger, Better! Until then, I will stick with my 2G.

      Hey, didnt mean to be rude, but if there is a thread in the official news forum, why not just keep all discussion there? Most of the traffic goes here anyway...

      But it looks exactly the same as the 3G but with the model number changed and in Matt black rather than shiny.

      If that's the only change and iPhone users are already saying they will rush out and buy it then the rumours are true....

      you know what i find funny about stuff like this. Apple could change jsut the look of the phone. Not anything to do with internals software, just the case to make it look better. They would also end up jacking the price up as always and people would go out and buy it. just because of the looks. not saying i wouldnt do it to. i mean it would have to look really good but i would still do it.
