    Looks like the mid frame is a bit thinner, but hard to tell from that.

    The drawings are a breakdown of the iPhone 4 back plate. I know this because I own a company that repairs apple products. We get the breakdowns of every apple device from the factories in China in our part ordering systems. That exact breakdown is present in the iPhone 4 ordering system and in all iphone 4 part catalogs. I do not know what proof you need but that is all I am willing to say on the topic.

    I have the "Break down" as well, But Mine does not look exactly like this, I know this is just the assembly for the iphone 4 but its sure not the official assembly view.

    Its like on the side of the rear housing there is one extra tooth. 4 instead of 3.

    Why does it seem everyone is expecting a huge design refresh. Does anyone remember that the 3GS was exactly the same as the 3G design wise. Just expect a hardware upgrade MAYBE. It could be the unveil for the white version or the Verizon version.

    3g was hardly running when the first iPhone came out. Apple wanted to make sure that the network was going good before then put a phone out for it. Otherwise the iphone would be getting a bad rap.

    Could be iPhone 5 with the exact same design as iPhone 4 but with better hardware and a full silver metal band and not have those black things in the frame.

    No one here can prove its not iPhone 5 backplate, it could be 3GS all over again.

    Fixed your comment.
    Several other markets, Europe especially, had multiple 3G networks per country, well in advance of the iPhone's debut.

    A small part of me wants there not to be too many changes in the next gen model. I wouldn't mind not feeling obligated to upgrade this year!

    IMO I feel 4G will come before a huge CPU / memory upgrade. I don't know about you guys, but i've never used my ip4 and thought "I wish this was faster" or "I wish I had more memory"

    I'd MUCH rather keep the same speed, but with more battery life.

    Considering if they add 4G they might need to upgrade the battery just to keep the same usage.
    The only thing I ask in return for helping, is that you click the thanks button, Thanks!

    I agree. I doubt it will be a big redesign

    I have to respectfully disagree. Perhaps you have inside information, but from the outside looking in it would seem very unlikely that Apple would let a generation old iphone debut on the largest carrier in the US when it (iphone in general) has already been bashed by verizon execs and android fanboys. Apple no longer manufactures 16 or 32gb iphone 3GSs and they obviously wouldnt want the only option on the network to be an 8 gig. More importantly though is that the 3gs has a lower resolution screen, worse battery, slower processor, lower mp camera and lacks a front facing camera compared to the I4. With such clear disadvantages in comparison to the features on current verizon phones, almost no one would want the iphone IMO. Existing AT&T customers wouldnt ditch their i4s for 3GSs (at least i dont think so), especially with all the drawbacks of verizon such as slower network, US only use and no voice and data simultaneously. If the 3GS debuted and not the i4, millions of people would refrain from switching and could likely be the biggest flop for a long time to come considering all of the hype over the last few years. Jobs wasn't named CEO of the decade by making bad decisions. I'll go ahead and call it: the 3GS has a 0% chance of going to Verizon.

    With that aside, can anyone make out the writing on the diagram/translate it to see if the dimensions are slightly different from the iphone 4? I'd say it's most likely a CDMA I4 or possible I5 since Rob2G said that there was a possible discrepancy in the rear housing and its unlikely they'd make a change mid-gen. I could see this being an I5 and apple starting a trend with design changes every 2 years which is common with manufacturers in multiple other market (i.e. mustang design every 5 years). At least i hope this is the case so that i can keep all of my accessories
