SmartPhone Medic has the pictures:

 

  

One of the main differences is that on this handset is a new black band on the chassis near the mute switch, and the band on the top has moved. The band on the lower left-hand-side of the handset responsible for the whole 'Antennagate' debacle remains.

Personally, I think it's the Verizon iPhone 4.

    You didn't include the hands on video? Its on youtube. And by the way, the correct option is not even listed on your poll.

      @adolfotero@... If this is a Verizon 4G phone, Verizon's 4G LTE network uses SIM cards. Also, if it is a Verizon 3G "global" phone, it would need a SIM card.

      First of all, by definition, it is not vapourware.
      1) It is not a product announcement. That alone makes it not vapourware.
      2) There is no release date.
      3) This is not from Apple.

      Second, of course people care. The market is interested in what the future direction of the iPhone is. This has nothing to do with the veracity of the post. If this were Windows 8 screen shots, people would also be interested. What is so hard to understand?

  • Fake.

    It is a photoshop fake - it looks like 2 iPhone 4 chassis back to back and mirrored. Top lefthand image shows spots for 4 volume buttons (2 up and 2 down) and 2 mute switches. Top Right shows 2 connection ports, 2 speakers and 2 microphones. Bottom left shows the same from a different angle. Bottom right shows 2 headphone jacks and 2 power buttons. Why would an iPhone 5 or iPhone 4 VZW need double buttons and ports? It's a fake and not a particularly good one at that.

    • Dude...

      @athynz Go the site. These photos are side by side comparisons with the current iPhone 4 and the "new" one.

    None of the above.

    Unless it runs the superior Windows phone 7 series OS then Apple might be smart to avoid releasing it. While i was in the Microsoft re-education Center, the doctor told me that iOS is nothing but garbage, like the rest of Apple?s crap. Who ever heard of a portable music player that will not sync with the Zune software? Who would dare to make a computer that doesn?t run the most excellent Windows 7 Operating System? To use anything less than 100% Microsoft, 100% of the time is to promote evil. I heard that Bin Ladin is related to that evil man Steve Jobs (the doctors told me this). ;)

      Isn?t it an absolute laugh what some Zealots will buy into? There are times I literally crack myself up.
