Images of a leaked iPhone 4 prototype were posted to a technology blog today. No, I haven’t gone back in time and I’m not referring to the Gizmodo iPhone 4 fiasco.
Today, a 64 GB iPhone 4 prototype was unearthed in Shenzhen, China from a Foxconn factory. Apparently, Apple was working on three models of the iPhone with storage capacities of 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB, but decided to ship only the first two.
MICGadget has posted images of the 64 GB iPhone 4 on its blog and has confirmed that it is indeed a legit prototype and not some counterfeit iPhone. It is very similar to the iPhone 4 prototype bought by Gizmodo last year and runs iOS 4.1. It has the model number – 995-6049LL and offers 59.1 GB of storage.
It is not SIM-locked and isn’t available for sale anywhere. This particular model was obtained from source who has a few of these.
This prototype seems to indicate that the iPhone 5, which will be launched in a few months, will likely offer a 64 GB version.
