    that is sweet, did a nice job
    you should cut down the edges so makes screen look bigger

    I don't think a front-facing camera would be so obvious.

    Nice mock-up but where would the actual speaker for calls go?? The cam has replaced it.

    With a higher speaker im guessing the mics going to be on the face of the phone and not the bottom.

    I know having the extra button on the side makes sense but I'm pretty confident that apple wouldn't do that. They are pretty opposed to buttons on the iPhone.

    agreed, it's just a mockup to show that it's there

    That's the speaker right above the camera, it's based on the new bezel taht was leaked today

    ...how do you figure? it's not like the iPhone extends beyond your mouth or anything

    True, but the bezel leaked today has a cutout right in that area! Also, it would make sense if they're going to be pimping the camera features on this iPhone. I think that it's very likely since they're going to make the new camera features a big feature.

    Just a hunch, but I think the iPhone 2,1 front camera will be very discreet like the 20 and 24" iMacs'.

    This wouldn't make sense since, for now, there is nothing to suggest the screen size will be changing from the current models.

    Neat looking mockup.

    I've never been a big proponent of the front-facing camera, but you made that look pretty nice. :) As MWillis said, I doubt apple would add another physical button, but I guess that leaked bezel does make it seem more possible.

    The headset speaker is NOT going to be up there. It would be HORRIBLY uncomfortable and it would feel UNNATURAL to press that edge into your ear. Go and try it with your 3G or 2G iPhones! It's AWFUL!

    I'm doubtful on the camera button, as said, I doubt Apple would add another button. I'd love for them to get rid of the vibrate/ring switch on the side. It constantly goes to silent or ring in my pocket right when I don't want it to.

    Calm down, it's not that bad. The mock up's earpiece moved like half a centimeter up. A lot of people I know with iPhone's don't even press the iPhone to their face/ear at all.

    I don't normally chime in on these mockups, but I really like this one.

    I redid it slightly ( I would kill for a 16:9 or 16:10 aspect ratio.. i hate the current 15:10 )
    the camera is now behind the front glass
    the LCD is much larger

    I couldn't agree more. I was going to post this, but wasn't sure if someone else already did.

    I put my 3G against my ear at the edge and it would hurt after being on the phone for a bit.

    You don't have to push the phone against your ear to hear someone calling you. You can just turn up the volume. Problem solved, no pain inflicted.

    Yeah, I'll just hover the phone next to my head. That will take care of the improperly placed headset speaker. :rolleyes:

    The volume is barely loud enough when I mash it into my ear at full volume, let me just turn the volume up into that imaginary setting where it would be loud enough with the phone hovering next to my head. :rolleyes:

    Not to nitpick (that means I will probably nitpick :)) but doesn't that reflection have a chrome bezel meanwhile the mockup has a black one?

    Anyway, I like the way you show the camera up front. That would be sweet.

    I really like this mock-up. I could definitely see myself getting this on launch day (assuming it's on PAYG on day 1). The front camera on the first mock-up looked kinda off, but after seeing the second mock-up, I'm all for it.

    The only thing I would change is the 'rumored' dedicated camera button. If I wanted a phone that thought it was a camera, I'd buy a Sony or Nokia.

    Now that is just ridiculous. When you hold the iPhone on your ear, the edge touches your ear anyways. This mockup is simply changing where it touches the ear, which would be just a tiny bit lower on your ear than previous iPhones. And it's only uncomfortable if you actually push the phone into your ear.

    You were really overreacting and didn't even bother thinking.

    I dunno. I have a Samsung candy bar phone and that's about where I hold it when I talk on it. It's not all that uncomfortable.

    Who peed in your wheaties? No need to be snarky, it was just a suggestion.

    Perhaps there is something wrong with your phone. When I turn the volume all the way up on my iphone I can't hold it right on my ear because it is too loud.

    Someone mentioned nit-picking?

    There needs to be a switch on the screen to switch between the front and back camera's, right? :D
