    Talking Chinese Wholesaler Exposes Upcoming iPhone bezel and LCD Hardware
    We've all been eagerly waiting for the upcoming iPhone, and with each rumor the excitement level increases. However, this latest news/rumor is good as well as bad. Good first: it seems that one of the Chinese wholesalers named ChinaOnTrade.com - who gets stuff directly from the factories where Apple hardware is produced - has put a bezel and LCD screen for iPhone on sale, which it claims belongs to the next gen iPhone.


    The bezel has changed -instead of the silvery color we're familiar with, it has now turned black. The other part exposed is the LCD screen. This is sad news, if it turns out to be true, as folks were hoping for an OLED screen. Which is also what makes us think that the rumor is fake! According to iLounge, OLED even costs about half the price of LCD being used currently. OLED would also reduce the power consumption to some extent.

    Rumors just keep flying as WWDC nears. Hope the new iPhone is released at WWDC so we can get rid of these rumors, but that doesn't seem like the case... if you believe the rumors.

    The new Zune is coming out with OLED so it may be possible that the new phone will have one too. Either way...the only thing I am after is a bigger hard drive. Everything else will just be a bonus

    Screw LCD, waste too much batery and its fatter + its old technology.
    Bring the OLED, idk if they raise the price as long as the iphone improves.

    It seems like apple doesn't like to innovate the iphone as much as their other products. iPod touch gets big upgrades and so does the nano's and to a smaller extent the shuffles.

    The next iphone must have:
    Cortex a8 or something faster
    double Rom
    Bigger screen or higher resolution (should be both)
    more memory (32gb)
    better camera (hopefully 2)
    Its own ichat app
    video and video editing

    Bonus: wireless charging

    If most of these things dont happen,
    the pre would beat the iphone in turns of being a better device.

    The bezel costs more than the LCD? That must be some bezel...

    Apple loves to spoon feed us just enough features to keep us happy. They hold back so much it isn't funny. I might just go with a Pre and get an iTouch for entertainment.

    this is a scam most likely.
    seen it before.
    these lil chinese companies say its legit, build up the hype, and then wait for poor suckers that buy it in bulk hoping to beat the market for when the phone comes out.
    another one born every minute.
    someone will buy these too.

    lots of them!

    Would like it to have a OLED screen but if they double the ram to 256MB (rumor also) that would be a big plus.

    Seems like you all are just as childish asking a mod to ban someone because of a silly thing as that post...let him have his joy of being "First".

    Anyway, I still don't see the point in a bigger hard drive? I don't know how people filled up the 4gb iPhone, I would much rather apple upgrade everything else and then think about hard drive space. Maybe I need to broaden my music collection.

    Even I have more than 4Gb of music but with nearly 2Gb of apps and another of vid my 8Gb can't fit it all on - and I have very little music compared to most!

    The mockup of it on iClarified looks pretty nice, shows that a camera is put in the front thats why the earpiece is so high.
