We’ve all seen the alleged backpanels and frontpanels belonging to the next-gen iPhone, but it seems that a Chinese iPhone website (via Macotakara) has claimed to have gotten their hands on what appears to be a fully assembled iPhone. However it should be noted that the site claims that there was some photoshop done with the photos and since these are photos which are apparently “leaked”, we’re not sure why they would bother photoshopping it to begin with. However it does corroborate earlier reports of a unibody iPhone with a design similar to the components we saw a while back, along with a new speaker grill and a smaller dock connector.
Since we highly doubt that these are the actual photos of the next-gen iPhone, purely from a discussion standpoint, what do you guys think? We’ve only seen concept renderings and concept videos of the “finished” product, but this would be the first time we’re seeing it in a real world setting and to be honest, it looks pretty good! Based on the launch of the iPhone 4S, we can safely assume that Apple will be revealing the next-gen iPhone in the Fall of 2012, so be sure to check back with us then for the details. Until then we suggest you take this with a grain of salt for now.
Update - As it turns out, these were merely realistic renderings based on the alleged leaked components and videos. They were created in Rhinoceros 3D by Flickr user, Martin uit Utrecht (via 9to5 Mac).
