iPhone 4s Frame Pictures Leak, Reveal Different Antennas
Leaks for the iPhone 4s, or new cheaper iPhone 4, or the iPhone 5 or whatever it is, are mounting up fast. MacRumors stumbled on another leak of what they believe to be "iPhone 4s" bodies.
The bodies are nearly identical to the iPhone 4 bodies, but both sides of the frame have slightly different antennas than the iPhone 4. The only breaks in the frame appear to be at the bottom of the phone. The Verizon iPhone 4 breaks occur at the top, and the AT&T iPhone 4 breaks occur at the lower and upper left. The other major difference appears to be the frame's lack of a home button. An empty square hole resides where the home button mechanism should be. What this means is unclear. Could Apple be changing the position of the home button? Making it touch only instead of physical? Or possibly introducing some redesign we haven't speculated about yet?
MacRumors claims the movement of the antenna is to accommodate the differing frequencies between mobile technologies. This, accompanied with the obvious slot for a sim card, suggests whatever model of the iPhone the frame is from, could support both GSM and CDMA carriers.
With each bit of information leaked, more questions than answers about the next generation of iPhones appear to be popping up.
