So maybe it was the next iPhone. Gizmodo somehow managed to get their paws on a prototype of what’s probably sure to be the next iPhone. Not only that, but they’ve snapped a bunch of pics, shot a few videos and even tore that sucker apart. Sadly the thing won’t boot up so there is a lot of info that will remain a secret until Stevesy hits the stage at WWDC this June, but for now we know the following:

  • It measures in at  a petite 4.5″ x 2.31″ x 0.37″ and weighs 140g
  • It feels more sturdy and luxurious than the 3GS, yet feels good in the hand and in pockets despite its heft
  • The back is made of either glass or a “shiny plastic” (remember that ceramic material patent Apple holds? Could this be it?)
  • The chasis is milled aluminum
  • No way of verifying the displays resolution since it’s not possible to get past “Connect to iTunes”, but it’s definitely at a much higher resolution than previous devices
  • The camera has been improved and has a flash
  • There is indeed front-facing camera
  • Uses a micro-SIM just like the iPad
  • The 5.25 WHr at 3.7V battery has a larger capacity than does the one found in the 3GS

Okay, we’ve done our bit. Now hit up the jump for a side-by-side shot with the iPhone 3GS then head on over to Giz.
