Ah, the next-gen iPhone. What more can we say? Almost sadly, we already know the screen will be bigger, the connecting port is smaller, and the design will be drastically different, with a two-tone metal casing. And yet, we still haven’t seen one of these bad boys fully assembled. We’ve seen parts — boy have we seen parts!
But with two weeks left until the official announcement, this is the first assembled handset we’ve seen, and it’s smiling for pics alongside the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS, no less!
After a close inspection, the assembly does look pretty janky. Maybe these tech enthused bloggers tried to assemble the components they had on their own, iFixit-style. Or maybe they Photoshopped the pictures entirely.
That’s not the point. The point is that, whether the pictures themselves are real or not, this is just about what the next iPhone is going to look like, if the bevy of rumors we’ve heard prove true. No, we’re still not sure about NFC, and Apple no doubt has something up its sleeve that hasn’t quite leaked yet, but as far as aesthetics go, I would say this is what you should expect.
Two weeks, people.
