Next generation iPhone casing, innards revealed on video; are you the Verizon iPhone?

January 5th, 2011 at 1:45 PM

A firm named GlobalDirectParts has put together a fairly extensive, five-plus minute video showcasing what they claim to be parts from Apple’s next generation iPhone (referred to as the iPhone 5 in the video). We get a crystal clear look at the charging-port flex-cable and outer aluminum skeleton of the device. There are several key differences between the iPhone 4 parts and the new parts we are being shown — displayed side by side in the video — including the absence of several of the black, plastic strips on the casing. This new iPhone shell still has a micro-SIM card slot, which could mean several things: it belongs to a global CDMA iPhone, it is a slight retooling of the current GSM iPhone 4 (iPhone 4GS anyone?), or… it’s just a fake (that’s still an option too). At the beginning of the video, around 0:23, the company appears to have a fully assembled version of the device and leaves us with the following taunt: “more coming next week.” While this video is from an unverified entity, it looks legitimate enough to warrant mention. Hit the break to have a peek and make sure to weigh in with your comments.

UPDATE: It looks like this is indeed the real deal — the video has been removed from YouTube, likely at Apple’s request.

Thanks, Johnny!
