The latest iPhone 4G (or iPhone HD) which mysteriously made into the hands of Endgadget yesterday looks like a real deal. Another popular gadget blog, Gizmodo has released a set of pictures and videos of a similar looking iPhone 4G, which they claim to have found from a bar in Redwood City! Now what’s with the iPhones and bars, we have no clue!
Some of the new features in iPhone HD/4G supposedly include Front-facing video chat camera, improved regular back-camera with flash, Micro-SIM similar to the iPad, improved display with a 960×460 resolution, secondary mic for noise cancellation, split buttons for volume and metallic power, mute and volume buttons.
From the above picture, compared to the present iPhones, the back of the next gen iPhone is entirely flat, made of either glass or shiny plastic in order for the cell signal to poke through. Tapping on the back makes a more hollow and higher pitched sound compared to tapping on the glass on the front/screen, but that could just be the orientation of components inside making for a different sound. The screen looks smaller than iPhone 3GS but with a higher resolution, battery is 16% larger, internal components are shrunken, miniaturized and reduced to make room for the larger battery.
