Few pictures of iPhone 4G front panel have been leaked by an iPhone repair site named iResQ, they are claiming that there are the parts of Apple's upcoming Next Generation iPhone 4G which is expected to be revealed in summer, 2010. Following are the snapshots:
These images could possibly be fake, as it doesn't make sense that why and how they got parts of iPhone-4G which hasn't been released by Apple yet. However if these images are legit, few interesting difference noticed b/w iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4G are:
1) 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.
2) The iPhone 4G front panel seems to be about 1/4? longer than its predecessors.
3) 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 it is, it’s in a different location than previous models.
