New Photo Confirms Partially Assembled iPhone 4S




Earlier today, we noted that a new leaked photo appearing to be a partially-assembled next-generation iPhone seemed to be showing an "iPhone 4S" design running on an A5 system-on-a-chip.

MacPost now shares a photo of the other side of the partial device, revealing that it is indeed an iPhone 4-like design. The new photo even shows the iPhone 4S turned on in its partially assembled state, requesting connection to iTunes for activation.




The new photo also clarifies the battery situation, revealing it to still be a 3.7 V, 5.3 Whr battery delivering 1430 mAh of charge, compared to the slightly lower-capacity 1420 mAh battery found in the iPhone 4. The 4.2 V figure spotted on the original photo posted earlier today was from the backside of the battery and appears to have been referring to the maximum charge voltage, as opposed to the 3.7 V nominal voltage under load.

Apple has also been rumored to be introducing a substantially redesigned iPhone 5 alongside this iPhone 4S, although there has been little concrete evidence of such a device showing up in parts leaks or supply chain channel checks. Third-party cases for the rumored iPhone 5 appear to show a substantially larger but thinner design than found in the iPhone 4.

iPhone 4+

I knew they'd release two this year to make up for the passover at WWDC.

By the look of it, the proximity sensor on the white is going back to the original mesh look?

Surely someone will be fired for releasing this picture. While it's great for us as rumor hunters it's really bad for any business. Especially if the individual got paid for doing it.

There's something a bit creepy about seeing it turned on like that. Anyone else reminded of the scene in Alien where Ash is in peices and they lay his head and shoulders on a table and turn him on with all that milk all over him? Reminds me of that.

It looks exactly the same to the iPhone 4 camera hole.

...and Apple made photos...

Remember how a few days ago someone stated that Apple makes photos of the desks to see who leaked information if prototype photos make it into the internet? Well, I guess they never heard of office paper as a background - as seen here.

The fact that the phone is requesting connection via iTunes for activation means that the phone is running on ios4, since ios5 doesn't even require you to own a computer. Odd no?

Looks the same size as the camera on my iPhone 4 to me! I doubt an iPhone will be getting front facing hd this year if the camera was considered too bulky for the Macbook Air.

iOS 5 brings iTunes-free activation so this must be some iPhone 4 prototype from last year

Based on how flat the ribbon cables are, this has been assembled from spare parts as I guessed earlier.

The proximity sensor looks just like the original, not the updated release version.

How is it not a fairly logical assumption, given 3GS was the non-redesigned version of the 3G and we're talking about a non-redesigned version of the 4?

BOGUS! Why wouldn't the iPhone 4s be running the beta version of ios 5? Isn't the new ios supposed to be PC free?

I just want the phone released so i can make my choice, hope this is the low end iPhone but i just don't see it. I think the larger screen so called iPhone is an iPod touch. Ive been due an upgrade since June and held off, would be very disappointed to find out if true it looks the same as IP4 even though the design of the 4 is great i held out expecting something new/different to go with ios5. Time will tell. Hurry and announce the thing Apple.
