iResQ, an iPhone repair shop, claims to have got their hands onto the next generation iPhone 4G. Here’s is what they have observed from the rumored iPhone 4G parts:
- The LCD appears to be factory glued to the digitizer which is more similar to the first generation iPhones than the iPhone 3G and 3GS. The digitizer can be separated from the LCD on the 3G and 3GS models, which should be interesting to all, but for the repair folks like us–this means that the 4G screen repair price will be higher since both parts will have to be replaced at once.
- The iPhone 4G front panel seems to be about 1/4? longer than its predecessors.
- There is an interesting reflective, mirror-like surface directly above the speaker. This is likely a spot for the proximity sensor. If that’s what is is, it’s in a different location than previous models.
The next gen iPhone 4G is rumored to feature 5 megapixel camera, LED camera flash and faster processor front facing camera for video conferencing and WiFi-N standard. iPhone 4G is expected to be unveiled at WWDC 2010 and it will feature the new iPhone OS 4.0.
