According to Gizmodo, the people who leaked the iPhone 4, a new iPhone could’ve already left the Foxconn factory illegally. The photos above show a possible ‘new iPhone’ with smaller dock connector, a moved headphone jack as well as other aesthetic changes. These photos seem to have come from a case manufacturer as the iPhone is pictured sporting a thin protective cover on the back of the device. Unfortunately these photos only show the front bottom of the device, not the top or back. However, this phone does look very similar to other renderings and leaked parts we’ve seen in recent months.
On the other hand, this “leaked phone” could just be another 3D rendering. I say this because of two very noticeable flaws in the device. To start, the home button looks fishy to me. It just doesn’t look like glass as it has some discoloration. Gizmodo reports that if you look closely at the device’s screen, you’ll notice that there is an old Maps icon, not the revamped iOS 6 icon. Finally, the front facing camera also looks weird, but that could just be the grainy image.
What’s your take on these images? Do you think we’re looking at the real thing, or just another cheesy rendering? Let us know in the comments!Follow @macgasm
