A video has surfaced on youtube showing parts for a supposed unreleased iPhone, possibly an iPhone 5 or a Verizon iPhone.The video has posted by a firm called GlobalDirectParts.They have the parts of Apple’s next generation iPhone i.e iPhone 5.There is a lot of speculation on the origin of the parts, and what iPhone the parts are for.
There is a slot for micro SIM card which suggests this iPhone uses the GSM bands. Also it may be a global CDMA phone for Verizon.
The case design is not radically different compared to the iPhone 4, which could mean that rather than being a next-gen model, it’s a slight “iPhone 4.5” redesign for the (supposedly) forthcoming Verizon model of iPhone 4. The case does have a cutout for a SIM card, however, which makes this a somewhat less likely proposition — unless this “iPhone 4.5” is intended to be a universal GSM/CDMA phone. Naturally, the part could also either be an earlier prototype design or an outright fake.
It may seem early for possible iPhone 5 part leaks, but repair firm iResQ got hold of the iPhone 4’s front faceplate as early as February of 2010. The similarities between this new case and the iPhone 4 case also gel with what I’ve suspected, that the iPhone 5 will most likely be a 3GS-style mini-update of the iPhone 4 rather than a major design shift. GlobalDirectParts claims to have details on this supposedly new iPhone’s display and motherboard, too, and will be showing those off next week.
