More alleged Apple iPhone 4G parts show white external casing

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
Components claimed to be from Apple's forthcoming fourth-generation iPhone once again show a white external casing, this time with a previously unseen white back panel.

PowerBook Medic obtained images of both the front and back panels for the newly designed casing. While the shown front panel matches what was previously pictured online, the back of the device shows space for a camera flash and a larger camera lens, as were found in the black models that were publicly disassembled.

The white back panel, covered with a plastic seal, lacks any markers that might indicate the storage capacity of the new device, and it does not feature a model number, suggesting it is not a final product.

The parts do clearly show the side-facing slot for a micro-SIM card, and the device's previously revealed metal sides. The front panel also features a spot for a forward-facing camera.

Last month, the first glimpse of a white next-generation iPhone was seen when an alleged part was obtained. The same site later placed the white front panel atop other components to give an idea of what the device might look like when it is finally released.



Previous reports said the back panel is made of glass or a similar material designed to help improve reception of Apple's next-generation handset.

Apple first began to offer color options with the iPhone 3G in 2008 with the second-generation version of the hardware. Apple gave the iPhone a polished, plastic back, available in shiny black for the 8GB and 16GB models, and offered a polished white option for the 16GB model only. But both the black and white models retained the black front panel surrounding the handset's multitouch LCD screen, while the new part suggests Apple could bring the color to the front side of the device.



Apple is expected to introduce its fourth-generation iPhone next week at the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference. The event will kick off on Monday, June 7, with a keynote hosted by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

Ugleeee!

Usually the white model is for the pros and the real aficionados, but you'd have to be blind and tasteless to buy into this new white version. (IMO of course)

I love it when people speak about subjective things as if they are facts.... Like when the first 4 gen prototype was leaked? Everyone said it was WAY too ugly to be a genuine iPhone....That they would NEVER buy it?? I'm sure Apple will have no problem selling either phone....Thank God Apple DOESN'T listen to the majority of comments posted here...

Appreciating that sites like AI need to drive page hits, I have to ask... is anyone else about tired of all the "images of iPhone 4G" almost every day? We're less than a week away, can we not stop speculating and guessing and just look forward to the 7th?

With that said, interesting the countries where these supposed leaks originate.

I bought the white 3g and was very happy with it. But I can't see myself buying the new white iPhone. Something about it lacks the sexiness of the new black one IMO.
post #8 of 42
I highly doubt the "white" or "black" panels will be made of glass. Just imagine if you were drop this thing once and, CRACK! I have droped my 3G model but never on it's face and by the looks of these supposed "next gen" models, the white and black parts are exposed at the edges. My guess is it will be the same plastic they use on the current models.

I bought the 3G model in White. Even the Tech Guys at my office didn't like the white, calling me (in gest i must mention) racist. But i got it in white because i knew EVERYONE would buy the black version so it would be easy to spot mine in the crowd. Oops, i just let out my secret

I seem to remember that Apple obtained a patent for a new type of crash proof ceramic some time ago. This is probably the material that looks like glass but is not.

How does saying "in my opinion it's ugly" equate to "it's a fact"?

Your making a lot of assumptions about me, generalising about what "everyone" thought, and bringing dieties into it for cripes sake. If anyone is being overly emotional and not talking facts, it's you.

When it comes to Apple gear I always buy the white model as I think it's classier. Not this time though.

The back doesn't look that bad on the new white ones, it's the front that I just can't get behind. Ick!

I read (somewhere - I thought on AI) that it is a composite material made of a ceramic composite or ceramic-like material. Both plastic and solid ceramic would not seem to work. Plastic, since it would not only scratch but with the new edges could easily get dinged or nicked (no, these are not professional terms). The ceramic would be great for strength and not scratching but is a bit too brittle and usually would be done as a coating on metal or some other substrate (metal would get rid of the obvious reason quoted for the new back - better radio reception) e.g., Rado Watches (http://www.rado.com/en/watches/Pages/index.aspx).

Guys, please stop using allegedly for everything! After a while it just starts to get funny how much you misuse the word. It has a negative connotation, especially in journalism, where it's used almost exclusively when someone has been accused of a crime. I've been ignoring it for months now, but this is just silly.

Sorry can't play that here.. It's sad but I live in one of the most censored countries in the world - in Germany .

Also, I really hope that this Metal side is not final, it looks terribly unfinished. Not only the seams but also the way the side of the casing shows up is horrible...
Will probably buy one anyway...

I purchased the white iPhone 3G when it came out 2 yrs ago.

Honestly, what does t matter what color it is, black or white? 99% of the people I know and people I have met all had a cover on their iPhone, for protection, color or whatever. In fact, in the two years of iPhone usage, I can't ever remember seeing an iPhone without a cover, with exception of when someone bought their iPhone new and hadn't had time to buy a cover.

My 3GS is in a case (mostly because it was my first iPhone), but if I get a new one, I don't think I'll get another case. No need to bulk up a good looking, rugged design.

Because only the rabble use a cover?

Seriously, the kind of people who argue over white versus black (like myself) are purists and design-heads, and no one in that category would ever cover up a beautiful thing like an iPhone with a ten dollar plastic case.

Also, I think you are either living in a very strange place, or wildly exaggerating the amount of folks that use a cover. 99 out of 100? Really? Not exaggerating a bit there?

I see lots of naked iPhones all the time (more like 60/40 IMO), and I imagine that if I lived somewhere where it didn't rain everyday like it does here, there would be a lot more.

There are three types of people in this world:
1) Those with protective covers on their iPhones.
2) Those who haven't dropped their iPhones YET.
3) The unfortunate who don't even have iPhones.

I have one black and one white soft silicone cover. It's funny because I've had people actually think I've gotten a totally different iPhone.

Do cased protect from fall damage pretty well? My main beef with cases is that they make the phone thicker, and even though keeps the phone inside nice and shiny, it gets pretty dirty.

Where can you find a case for $10? From what I have seen they all seem to start at closer to $20 than $10 and the sky is the limit.

I bought a case for my iPhone 3G when I first got it. It was one of those that completely enclosed the iPhone and attempted to make it look the same only fatter - about a quarter of an inch (0.25" or approx. 6.5 mm for you SI types). Yuck! It turned out to be a dust collector and made my phone uglier so it now sits in a drawer.

I prefer naked or au natural! No case for me thanks.

Yeah, no kidding it has other meanings, thanks for the lesson. But its usage in journalism, as I already made clear, is quite specific. If you're the editor of the NYT or WSJ or some other publication, say so, otherwise you should really check things out before you speak up. And you might want to revise your list of who's wrong up there, because the link I just gave you goes on for pages with the exact same usage of the term over and over and over and over.

I have one black and one white soft silicone cover. It's funny because I've had people actually think I've gotten a totally different iPhone.

I've dropped mine lots of times, and my iPod touch and the previous iPhone I had. None had cases, none broke. Minor scratches on the metal rim of the iPod touch when it hit the concrete.

The iPhone screen is made from hardened glass, it's practically un-scratchable. There are no moving parts to break, and the whole thing is sealed. Also, most cases are just for show. The only thing they will stop is the slight tiny scratches, a real fall will still do the same damage it would do even if you didn't have the case. The case is just for cosmetic protection, not *actual* protection.

Also, you are really assuming here that everyone is unnaturally concerned with keeping the phone in pristine out-of-the-box condition. If it gets a few scratches on the back or the rim, that doesn't destroy it as a phone or make it any less cool AFAICS. It's a phone, it's made to be used, not protected like a little jewel in it's perfect little case.

I think it's pretty hilarious how a lot of men will make fun of some guy for buying a white phone cause it's "feminine" or some such, but will freak out if their phone gets the tiniest scratch or recoil in horror if it gets out of it's pretty little case they bought for it.

Wow! You seem to be very sure of your position. I am not a lexicographer and English is not my native tongue. Thus, I will use your own "evidence" to dissect your claims about the supposed misuse of the term, and that others are being silly for doing so.

Really??? Positively sure? Can you please provide us with a reliable (online) journalism manual to bolster your claim? that:

"Allegedly" this, "allegedly" that, especially in journalism, it's used almost exclusively when someone has been accused of a crime"?


Using your own "Google" search link, here are some interesting "headlines" or quotes (the commentaries below each quoted material were mine):


Contrary Evidence #1.
"Pop diva, Mariah Carey, and hubby Nick Cannon, have been uber-private about their alleged pregnancy, leaving speculators to publish all sorts of 'is she' or ... "

Do you happen to live in a country where it is not only negative to be pregnant but you will also be accused of a crime? In the US, perhaps if you are a guy, you might get odd looks ("negative"), but it was a tabloid headline when a guy announce that he was allegedly pregnant. To my knowledge he earned more than "15-minute fame" but was never accused of committting a crime for the alleged pregnancy.


Contrary Evidence #2.
"The alleged rift between Brangelina over Brad Pitt's decision..."

I know that a rift has a negative connotation, but I doubt that either of the famous lovebirds would ever be accused of a crime for having a rift, at least in the US or the parts of the world where I have been.

Contrary Evidence #3.
"Alleged Alpha Protocol Developer Calls Game "a Failure" "

While a failure can imply something negative, looked at a different perspective, the "alleged ... developer" may be viewed also as frank and honest, and does not want to delude potential consumers from buying a "failed" game app. The "alleged ... developer" would more than likely be applauded for his honesty and not likely to be accused of a crime.

Contrary Evidences #4 & 5..
"Shock at "tributes" mocking death of alleged murder victim"

"Second alleged victim testifies in cop torture trial"

It was possible that a crime was commited but surely, it would not have been the "alleged victims" would not have been the ones accused of the crime commited by someone else.

I could go one with more examples, from the Google search you provided.

Unless you can explain yourself oot of the examples provided to refute your claim that], "especially in journalism, it's used almost exclusively when someone has been accused of a crime " maybe you should have exercised more forbearance. Otherwise, there might be a debate about who would look silly.

Since we are "pointing fingers", the more apt terms to use would be "Correct-Incorrect" or some who think to be purist: "Proper - Imporper", as opposed to "Right-Wrong". The latter terms connote a certain degree of "moral judgement". Of course, because lexicographers consider languages as "living" and "evolving", "Right-Wrong" as you used them above, would now be considered acceptable usage.

His (oodlum's) postion would have had a stronger foundation has he cited standard authorities of lexicography: Merriam-Webster, Oxford Dirctionary of the English Language, and similar sources.

You actually based your claim from being in the inside with the editor of NYT or WSJ or some other publications? Or did you base your epiphany from the Google search you provided?

Do you actually consider a "Google search" as evidence of facts? Or, in the case, teh basis of correct usage of a term?

oodlum need not really have to change his position. The claim of the original post -- with no solid or authoritative proof provided, except your allegation that knowledge/authority of journalistic practices -- may need to be reconsidered by the original poster.

The original claim about the correct "alledgedly" and their derivatives would be almost tantamount to claim would be tantamount to positing that the term, GAY, refers only to a person in same sex relationship or being attracted to the same sex, simply because in Western culture, the leaders and activists of a community in our society was so successful in claiming the term, GAY.

Having done so, it does not become incorrect or silly to still use the term "gay" to refer to a different emotional state, more akin to happy, merry and such. I am sure there must be other correct usage of the term because my first roommate, when I came to the US, happened to have "Gay" for a last name, without showing any inclination to have been attracted to me, or any of our dormmates -- unless he was so good in concealing his identify and the girl tagging along with him was simply a "fag hag". And in the US, "fag" may a different meaning from what the Brits refer to.

CGC


N.B.

The evidences provided in quotation (and also italicized), were taken from the Google source link provided by the "evangelizer" of the correct usage of "allegedly" and their derivatives.

Your own link proves you wrong. Sure, "alleged" is almost always used in cases of legal accusations. But just because that use is common, does not mean all other uses are incorrect.

I have one black and one white soft silicone cover. It's funny because I've had people actually think I've gotten a totally different iPhone.

I had a £20 leather Belkin case until I lost it on holiday. Never bothered to replace it. 3G now almost 2 years old and 18 months without a case, very minor scratches on the glass that you cannot see at all when the device is in use, plenty of scuffing on the back where it's been slid around on desks etc and a bit of a dint on the bottom corner where I've dropped it a few times, but nothing that makes it look damaged. The only issue I have is the casing around the dock connector on the back is cracked in 3 places near the screws, but you have to look for it.

Oh, and when I unlocked it (legally) and put in a different sum, the sim tray was a bit grungy where I had once dropped it in the cat food...

Frankly I wish I had never bought the case. When the next phone is out and I replace it, I will spend less than the price of a case buying a replacement casing/bezel on Ebay in purple to give to my other half and it will look as new.

I found the case increased the size, increased the weight, made it harder to slide in and out of pockets, harder to access the mute/volume buttons without taking it out of your pockets etc. There's a reason they stopped selling the protective screen covers and all that in Apple stores recently, it's largely pointless. They're tough things, and the new one is likely to be even stronger.

Funny... but not true.

I've got an original iPhone which has never been in a case. It has been dropped tons of times. Granted, it has a couple dents on the corners, the silver paint is worn away in some areas, it is really scratched up, and has a few rows of stuck pixels. But I don't regret going caseless at all.

Maybe this is the prototype for lower cost phones? And the metal/glass are high end or white is the backup jone in case it doesn't work as planned. Remeber that story?

Wait for the fall or winter, it could happen. As shown in renders, this model lends itself very well to adding colors. There is no reason they would introduce it at launch though, when it could be better used as a mid cycle sales boost.

How do you even form an opinion when looking at such a terrible picture? The lighting is so bad it doesn't even look white.

I have one black and one white soft silicone cover. It's funny because I've had people actually think I've gotten a totally different iPhone.

I don't have a case for my iPhone and Ive dropped it a few times before, once was on concrete and It made a small crack about 1cm long on the back near the dock connector. I walked into an apple store and got a new one free. Problem solved.
