As we get closer to WWDC this year, expect next generation iPhone 5 rumors to really pick up (as if they haven’t already). Apple’s annual developers conference is set for June 6th and promises to unveil iOS 5 and hopefully provide information on the next iPhone.

Although there has been no official announcement from Apple, there has been some interesting evidence floating around the web over the last few weeks regarding the next iPhone. The latest comes from MIC Gadget, who posted some pictures this morning of the proposed iPhone 4S

The gadget site doesn’t offer any explanation as to how the photos were obtained, nor do they appear to be very confident that they’re real. However, if you look back at recent reports regarding the iPhone 5, these photos seem to match up with previous information.

There have been multiple rumors pointing to a similar design of the iPhone 4 for the iPhone 5 (or 4S). This wouldn’t be completely out of the ordinary for Apple, as many of you recall the iPhone 3GS.

Apple recently started sending out iPhone 4-looking devices with A5 chips to app developers. Since then, we’ve seen several leaked photos of white, iPhone 4-looking devices. The snapshots posted on BGR‘s website this weekend looked exactly like a white iPhone 4, but it obviously wasn’t.

The photos posted to MIC’s page this morning match both the BGR photos and the video released last week of an iPhone running a mysterious version of iOS. The pictures also seem to support the theory that the next iPhone will get a larger screen.

As you can tell by the side-by-side comparison, the “leaked” iPhone model has a slightly bigger screen than the current one. The new screen size looks to be about 3.7 inches instead of 4.

This is obviously all speculation at this point. Apple could easily be keeping the new iPhone design a complete secret. If you remember, the iPhone 4 that was found in a bar inside a 3G-like casing.

But if the prototypes are accurate, expect the next iPhone to look extremely similar to the current model, with updated hardware. I just hope that Apple wouldn’t make everyone wait until September for a “bridge” product.

What do you think?

    • T0bi

  • Tricky But this could be it

  • Burge

    If it does look the same that’s ok . I was waiting for the White iPhone 4 but because its taken forever to come out I’ll take the new and improved i4s ..I just love the look of the screen size ..roll on September

    • Burge

  • Joel

    This is photoshopped, look at the guys fingers closely.

  • Equilibrium

    Got a Home Button 😀

  • Selcuk

    The supposedly new iPhone has no home button? Look at the shadow, it shows the depth where the circle home button is meant to be. I think it’s just a shell.

  • Buba

    Think they will come out with Pink,

    Two things I hate about the iPhone:

    1. iTunes and iPhone updates every 3 or 4 weeks (it seems like)

    2. Lots of apps are paid

    After my 2-year plan is done with AT&T I’m getting the LG Thrill 3D by AT&T!

    • Manuel

      At least Apple gives updates, then Andriod which barely give you any, not to mention having to wait for your model to get it. Also, you don’t need iTunes for an idevice. Every heard of “jailbreak”

    • Alec

      Kid, fuck off. We know you hate the iphone, WE DONT CARE!

  • Justin

    Anyone else find it funny that we haven’t seen a white iPhone 4, yet all the “leaked iPhone 4S’s/5” have all been white.

  • Ken

    The new white iphone4 is compare to the old white iphone4 which never out yet?
    This is totally fake.

  • Josh

    That looks crazy ugly

  • Taylor Harris

    The newer iPhone “4S” front covering (on the right) has a slightly different (and better looking) shade of white to it. I don’t know if that’s a real front covering, in different lighting, or insignificant, but I did notice it. Many thing about this picture could be Photoshopped, but the screen size is one thing that could not be. If you notice on the right side of the screen as it meets the bezel on the outside, the reflection of the phtotgrapher’s hand is seen stretching to the very end of the LCD. If a shade of black were added to the edge of the screen to make the screen appear as though it extends further, then the photographer’s hand would stop mid-screen and not extend to the very edge of the bezel. I’ve personally never felt satisfied with an iPhone (as in, I couldn’t wait for the next features) until the iPhone 4. It’s just so well-designed from the speed to the display quality, that I’m for once not in a hurry to get the next Apple product. I’ve had the iPhone 4 since it was released and it’s still as exciting to read a non-pixelated text message as it was when I first purchased the phone. I’ll be fine if Apple holds off another year on the release of the 5th iPhone, that is, unless it can run Windows 7!

  • Junior

    Well if there isn’t a big change on the next iPhone I’ll probably end up getting the Samsung Infuse 4g 🙂

  • stop calling it an iPhone 4S or i will vomit in your mouth. thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    I saw one of the alleged photos of the 4S and on the ‘about’ menu.. It says “network: not available” yet in the status bar it says “BASE”

    Idk what “base” means.. A carrier in some country or ..
