Gizmodo Confirms, Reveals 4th Gen. iPhone

By April 19, 2010

Follow me on:

Remember that rumored 4th generation iPhone mentioned this morning? Gizmodo's got it (John Gruber reports that they bought it) and confirm that it's the real thing. I expect someone at Apple will be losing a job over this.

Gizmodo has taken the phone apart and posted some details:

  • Has two cameras - one on front, one on back; Also has a camera flash.
  • Screen is higher-res than on 3GS, may be the rumored 960x480 display; Screen is slightly smaller than on 3GS
  • Has MicroSIM slot and a second microphone
  • Back of phone is glass and overall has different design than 3GS, though this case may not be final
  • 3 grams heavier than the 3GS
  • Battery is 16% bigger, which presumably will lead to longer battery life

This whole thing was orchestrated by Apple’s PR division setup as a great way to get people talking and get media buzz. Clearly it’s working. :)

I think the likelihood of that being the case is very low. Apple’s PR/marketing has never worked that way; they prefer to be completely in control of every aspect of what they do and to stage announcements carefully. Plus, it’s not like they needed more buzz for this iPhone and this somewhat took away from the great quarterly financials they just released.

Anything’s possible, of course, I’d just be very, very surprised if Apple’s behind this.
