  • 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:

      we still have 5 months left..will see more leak iphones photos soon to come..aka photoshoped this be the first

      i like the matt back but when i saw the inside back cover that kind of killed it for me..its way to plastic and cheap looking..and no flash holes for the flash for the cam..

      as for the removable batt. im guessing that if they going to do that they will design it as the whole back plate would come off with a screw or a latch or something you know apple likes to design stuff that looks sexy

      there will be more iFake photos to come till it gets closer then will see a more sure of what it may look like..

      This is DEFINITELY NOT the next ten iPhone. All you fanboys already drooling over some photshopped 3g need to keep it in your pants. Even if it was the next gen iPhone all it is is a 3g with a matte finish. There's IT'S JUST A BACK CASE!!!

      Obviously auto-correct was on

      ^I really don't care what it looks like even though I'll most likely be buying it. As many others have said, I want some better internals.

      Virtual memory would be sick on this guy; if you have 8GB of free space, you should be able to utilize it. Not sure how plausible this is as I'm no hardware/software engineer, but it's nice to think about.

      i fear that with a much needed memory upgrade it will also come with a repeat of the ipt2g incident

      we will have to keep our fingers crossed that they dont change the processor

      If you run the image through photoshop, the image is not graphically generated and the curves are true to form, further, i can't see any rendering marks or extrapolated edges. So who knows but it hasn't been photoshopped from my point of view.

      also if you look at past images that were supposed to be real examples and proved to be so they also had slight details missing or not quite correct as is the case (no pun intended)in mock up first run samples. details such as the "o" from iphone no been formed properly and the use of the letter "i" not being consistent in it's form. To me this looks like a real photo, the markings and plastic mould marks on the interior are similar to the current phone which would suggest that perhaps it likely to be real as apple would and does used the same frame work for all of its models of hardware ( costs less to imitate than to create). that said If the browsing data from u know who about the new core structure of the supposed updated iphone in June then we could be looking at a completely new phone hardware and all, and this could simply be a case off a current Chinese knock off.

      Has anyone stopped to think that this is probably just another case that has been modded? I mean we all DO remember the so called psycho modded iphone right? Myself, I dont want to see 'new iphone models' because they are going to end up being like everything else at the end of the day: low priced, feature lacking....just scaled down raped versions of our current phones. All to put an iphone in the hands of all of those people who hate us for having something they cant afford.

      I'm going to email Bentley Motor Company and ask them to build me a stripped down roadster so I can APPEAR to be driving exactly what the rich people are driving.

      ".....it looks fatter than the 3G "

      this comes from the 10 Megapixel Autofocus Camera

      All it is an iPhone 3G case but modified. Apple will put flash on the camera,I'm most certain they will.

      I've not read all the pages of this topic but has no one noticed how the internal layout is completely the same as the 3G! I mean this could just be a 3rd part replacement cover for a 3G.

      Take a look at this http://www.global-electronic.cn/uplo...Rear-Panel.jpg don't it look so very similar!
