IPhone 4G Photos Are Real, The Proof Has Been Around For Months

Update: This is the real deal. Scroll down to the bottom for more info, photos and a video.

So, those iPhone 4G photos ARE real? It seems so and the proof has been around since the iPad launched, except no one noticed it at the time. Get ready folks, the iPhone 4G (HD, or whatever) may break away from the design of the original iPhone.

The night before the gigantic iPad announcement, some photos of the iPad leaked - and believe it or not, the iPhone 4G was in the shot as well. This is the equivalent of finding the Loch Ness monster in a Big Foot photo - so, while people were doubting if this was the iPad or no, no one would have believed the thing on top of it is the recent iPhone.

But after alleged photos of the iPhone 4G appeared (not counting the fake ones) and we know what to see for, the realization dawns that the odd-looking iPhone over the iPad is real - and so is the recent one. Okay, we still don't believe the bit about it being found on the floor of a San Hose bar but that's hardly the point here.

Then someone dug out photos of the iPhone 4G internals. Add in the glass-like ceramic enclosure patent by Apple (it's radio transparent for better signal reception) that explains the back of the recent iPhone and things start coming together.

This should be what the iPhone 4G looks on the inside

Since the devices in the photos are probably early hand-made prototypes, there might be slight differences with the final hardware, but this is pretty much how the iPhone 4G will see like.

There are some hardware specs that have been "confirmed" (don't hold them as granted, but they sound quite plausible). First off, a higher-resolution classy screen (hence the iPhone HD thing), 640 x 960 has been mentioned as the resolution (twice the number of pixels on each side compared to the current iPhones).

Next is the better capturing camera with flash, MicroSIM card slot (like in the iPad), and the number 80GB has been floating around for the internal memory. Flash memory comes in powers of 2 so, 80GB sounds pretty unlikely but it could be a 64GB + 16GB combo.

Update: Gizmodo have gotten their hands on the lost iPhone 4G prototype and they've got it on video. They've also managed to confirm some of the rumored changes and dig up recent information.

The device doesn't boot, but so far they've managed to confirm the following. The capturing camera now has a larger lens and has a Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash. The display reportedly seems of more high resolution but is physically a small smaller. There's a front-facing capturing camera and the battery is some 18% bigger. A real downer is that the iPhone 4G uses a MicroSIM card instead of the regular variety.

The lost iPhone 4G measures 114.3 x 58.7 x 9.4 mm and weighs 140 grams
