The folks over at Gizmodo have done it again. They managed to get their hands on one of the new iPhone 4’s said to be released on Tuesday ahead of time. The leaked images show proof of the N90A. The device codenamed “N90A” for clarification is not the iPhone 4S (which is codenamed N94). Although the iPhone 4S is still said to be coming, the photo is of the cheaper 8GB iPhone 4 which is also said to be launching next week too.
Gizmodo is reporting the following:
“Our Brazilian brothers, Gizmodo.com.br, got their hot little hands on a few photos of one a new iPhone, to be announced next week. How? Well, there’s a Foxconn factory in Brazil, and Pedro & co got one of their men inside.
Inside, they found a new-SKU iPhone that looks just like the old iPhone 4.
Most of these photos don’t look like anything special—just snapshots of a familiar face. But when you get to the last one, a picture of a Foxconn Brazil quality control form, you’ll notice something strange: a different model number, N90A.”
These specific devices in the picture won’t be hitting shelves anytime soon due to a problem with the camera lenses according to Gizmodo. The design itself is very real though and is probably going to be the closest thing to a confirmation that Apple will unveil a cheaper iPhone 4 alongside the 4S on Tuesday.
The picture provides proof that the cheaper iPhone 4 features the same exact design as the current iPhone, but the device will have less onboard storage and reportedly rely heavily on iCloud. The iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 is said to come in a 64GB flavor and there have been leaked images providing proof of existence for those. The cheaper iPhone 4 will probably seek to replace the 3GS as Apple’s entry-level device.
A more affordable iPhone will open the flood gates to many more potential customers for Apple. One thing that remains unknown is the price point – speculation has mentioned the possibility of it being $50 or $100. One thing is for sure – we’ll be finding out on Tuesday’s “Let’s Talk iPhone” event.
