Images of Fourth Gen iPhone Prototype Posted

Engadget has posted photos of iPhone 4G that was “found on the floor of San Jose bar inside of an iPhone 3G case”. The phone showed 80GB storage and a decidedly new OS, before it switched off and stopped booting. The phone also has front facing camera, round volume buttons and more squarish design. It looks slightly thicker than current iPhone with smaller screen size.

Our initial reaction to the photos is that the photos look legit but the device in the photos is a very earlier prototype of next gen iPhone. The reason for our assumption is the fit and finish of the device. The aluminum sides of the device are not as streamlined as all other Apple product, and also the top and volume buttons look like a last minute job. We believe, even if the device in the photos is a prototype of iPhone, we will see a very different looking device when next gen iPhone is officially launched in June this year.
