Next Generation iPhone Case and Internals Caught on Video? [Update]
GlobalDirectParts has posted an almost six minute long video showcasing what they believe to be parts from the iPhone 5, according to BGR.
We have carefully examined and scrutinized these components and have confirmed 100% that these are born from an Apple iPhone not yet released. Could it be parts for the CDMA Apple iPhone 5 for Verizon Wireless or simply a reworked Next Generation Apple iPhone 5 or Apple iPhone 4 for AT&T that will be released ahead of Apple's Traditional June Launch? Perhaps these parts belong to an Apple iPhone 4 CDMA Version that will be released on Verizon Wireless Only? One thing is for certain, these parts are new and internals for a yet unreleased Apple iPhone Handset, brought to market first by GlobalDirectParts.com!
Interestingly, it seems as though Apple has moved the positioning of the antennas that make up the metal frame around the device. Also, a new internal metal band extends across the device. The band runs just above the home button starting from near the 'spot' that bridges the two antennas at the bottom left of the iPhone. It's thought that these changes will prevent the antenna issues that plagued the iPhone 4.
The site says it will release more details next week.
Apple has filed a copyright claim with YouTube and the video has been removed. This may indicate that it is legitimate.
