Apple’s next-generation iPhone is currently nearing production, according to 9to5Mac. The report cites an unnamed source at Foxconn in claiming that various sample devices, which vary slightly from one another, are already floating around. Each device is said to feature a 4-inch or larger display and a unique form factor unlike the iPhone 4 and 4S, though the teardrop-shaped design that was previously reported is nowhere to be found. None of the prototypes are said to feature Apple’s final launch design, but 9to5Mac reports that the next-generation iPhone could be on track for a summer launch.
