We've just came across a series of images that
show the slightly tweaked external body of a device that's highly
similar to the iPhone 4. What we have here is either a design update for
the iPhone 4 or the parts for Apple's first CDMA iPhone, which has been
rumored for ages.
We try to be extra careful in our choice of words really, because
these parts could just as easily be for some Chinese replica with no
Apple involvement whatsoever. But since Apple got one of the video
source off YouTube in no time, for now we'll assume it's the real thing.
The biggest difference you'll see is in the
external antenna. This metallic strip has been divided by five black
strips instead of the four strips in the original design.
Another interesting thing to note is that the SIM card slot is
intact, which means that if this is the CDMA iPhone to come, it will
either have a secondary GSM radio or an LTE radio.
As we said, our source is not the only one who has
got their hands on these parts. Unfortunately, the other source taped
the whole thing on video and Apple got that off YouTube. According to
Engadget, the video showed parts, in which there was no hole for the
back camera, which is quite perplexing.
