While the world anticipates the next generation iPhone, more purported images of the same continue to surface on the webs. A Japanese iPhone repair company, iLab has posted a gallery of fully assembled phone which it is calling the images of the next generation iPhone.
The images certainly pack the physical design cues that confirm the reports about the new design and back panel of the upcoming iPhone. Notably, Apple is reportedly set to announce the next iPhone in September this year.
As per the images, Apple’s next iPhone features a 4-inch Retina display which is certainly larger than the current as well as past iPhone models. With that we hope even the screen resolution will be pushed higher to support that. In the front, the position of the camera has been changed and now placed right above the earpiece. That is for better engagement with FaceTime video calling feature.
The audio port for earphones has been moved from top to bottom left corner. Next to that port is the grill of speakers accommodating the new 19-pin connector in the center. The back gets a new brushed aluminium panel with glass piece at the top holding camera sensor on left corner.
However, the images do not cover the internal hardware. The iLab blog noted that those internals would be sourced from different suppliers.
The next iPhone is certainly expected to supersede the current generation iPhone 4S in every way possible. We expect some major design change and also new improvements in terms of software. If the native resolution goes higher, then expect the apps and games to hit higher file sizes.
Apple’s chief executive officer Tim Cook did drop hints about future product by admiring the speculations that continue to rife every week. Recent reports hint that Apple is expected to launch the new iPhone by late September.
