Apple Essentially Confirms “Leaked” Next-Gen iPhone Part was Real!
In an interesting move by Apple, the coverage detailing a leaked assembly for the next-generation iPhone 5 was pretty much confirmed to have some truth behind it when Apple got the video REMOVED from YouTube with a copyright violation claim. The next generation iPhone featured a very similar aluminum body, however a few slight changes were present.
As BGR reported, one major difference was the small notch near the head phone jack was removed on the newer model (the one on the left). There were also minor variations with where the notches were located, such as the notch normally found in the lower corner of the phone (the one that causes you to lose signal when you touch it). Instead, this notch seems to be placed higher on the device now, just above the volume buttons. This definitely suggests that this is Apple’s next move for remove all doubts in any reception and “Death-Grip” issues from the next generation iPhone.
The video, with details on the new leaked body was simply just another rumor to us and I was paying no attention to it. However, now that Apple has removed the video from YouTube with a claim of copyright infringement, I have lots of reasons to believe this was legit.
This “was” the video:
Many people would say this is the “Verizon iPhone” that’s coming soon. We aren’t going to go that far, however it looks promising that the next generation iPhone will likely have a fix to the “death-grip” issue. I mean, I know that a Verizon iPhone is a great idea, and that you would likely agree that things would be better with one… but still… NOBODY has said it’s going to Verizon yet. It’s ALL rumors. Period.
