  • 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 dont think that this is to bad looking. Does anyone think that if the new case is metal that apple will use the same brick process to make these just like they do the macbooks? maybe maybe not.

      look very fake to me!! i don't think apple would release somthing that ugly, come on they pride themselves on style & setting the standard in looks & that doesn't really shout out at me to buy it.

      But if they do release a new iphone i'm gona be very angry, the 3g hasn't even been on the market for a good yr. But sad to say i'll probably be one of the first to buy it , hopefully my carrier is nice & let me upgrade to the new version cheap, it's the australian way i hope haha

      those cases are for the fake iphones they sell. someone just asked them if they could make the case for that phone. its not a real iphone nano.

      That photo looks terrible, the least attractive of the two so far. The worst part is that the same crap camera without flash is in the same place. 2MP really... still, come on that is unacceptable.

      We need like a ton of RAM and a sweet processor to handle background apps and games. Go backgrounder!

      This cover is believable becuase it would solve the early complaints about smudging. Although what would the white cover look like?

      +



      =



      Most people get cases for their expensive iPhone so the grip is stupid not to mention scratches would look ugly on this. I had the same type of texture on my AT&T tilt and scratches were unbearable to lok at. I would have just went to home depot, bought this and got it over with if I wanted a grip. I'll still buy the new one when it comes out but I need more....

      It looks just like the shiny apple on my 3G - I don't think there is any difference. I believe it is either an after market one or a fake.

      I would hope this is a fake i'm hoping for at least a 3.2 megapixel camera and flash somewhere around the camera similar to the way it was setup on the Palm Pre. It matches up with apple's styling and would make for better camera use.

      who cares what it looks like. I want to know if it will have all the features even cheap phones have (mms). If the software is majorly changed it won't be worth the price of upgrade.

      Remember the good old days when people were happy with the sexy metal casing on the original and perfectly awesome original apple iPhone? I know I still do.

      One of the biggest reasons why I haven't upgraded to a 3G. I use a 2G with the metal back. My dad has a 3G, and he wanted to give it to me, but I said "no thanks, I'm perfectly happy with my 2G". The plastic casing looks and feels too damn cheap to me. I do hope the new iPhone doesn't have the same thing.

      If you're happy with 2G speeds that's fine, they only need a little bit at the bottom for the aerial. Unfortunately 3G aerials as well means the whole back has to be plastic for the signal to get through.
