Last month, images and video of a pre-release iPhone made headlines, and now Apple has apparently lost a second unit.
Other iPhone 4G Details
The holder of the iPhone prototype took a number of pictures of it, but aside from the confirmation of the A4 processor, they do not reveal much new information.
This unit does not appear to be fully functional, so it can’t be confirmed that this device will run iPhone OS 4.0. The next version of Apple’s operating system will be the first to allow third-party applications to run in the background.
The prototype has 16 GB of built-in storage, indicating that Apple will offer at least one unit with this capacity. The company is also expected to offer 32 GB and 64 GB versions.
A front-facing camera is definitely present on the prototype, lending credence to reports that the next iPhone will support iChat video conferencing. It will also supposedly have a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera with flash.
Apple has scheduled an event on June 22 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, where all previous iPhones were unveiled, making this a likely date for the announcement of the fourth-generation version.
