Except the new phone won't be an iPhone 4G.

I doubt its authenticity and highly do not think it will materialise.

A couple of months ago, there were news of China companies putting up for sale cases for the touted successor to iPhone 3G. Suffice to say, BS.

If this is true, then the Next iPhones Chrome Bezel wont surround the whole phone...

Hey Guys, today surfing the web I have found one company from Hong Kong already has iphone 4g spare parts for sale!??

If that *is* real - it looks like a radically different design - with much less surround for the same sized screen.

There's a thinner bezel along the bottom of the screen - and really thin one along the top. The current phone is 4/5 screen 1/5 bezel. This looks like 9/10 screen 1/10 bezel.

It's not a million miles from this mock up.

I think these are real. Chinatrade is a big shop and I doubt that they would make this up.

I hope not as that site mentions an ordinary LCD screen for the next iPhone and not OLED. If that's the case, then it's another clear example of Apple again falling behind in terms of hardware (with Sony and now MS releasing devices with OLED).

I think these are real I heard the new iPhones weren't going to have a chrome bezel.

A plastic bezel? Hmm...

That hole on the top of the bezel looks like a speaker hole. I wonder if that means the screen is going to be much larger, or if they're just moving up to the top.
