The white iPhone 4 certainly seems to be coming this week. Mounds of evidence point to an April 27th launch date for the infamous Apple smartphone, including Best Buy inventory screenshots and even leaked photos of a T-Mobile branded white iPhone 4.

Or was it an iPhone 4? More details have come to light about the mysterious device that appeared on BGR‘s website yesterday. The phone looked very similar to a white iPhone 4, but appeared to be running on T-Mobile’s network. Apparently its color and carrier weren’t the only things that made this device unique…

9to5Mac posted some interesting facts about the leaked device. They don’t believe it’s just a run-of-the-mill iPhone 4 with T-Mobile compatibility. They think this could actually be the next-generation iPhone.

They note that the N94 markings on the back of the device signify that it is a prototype build. It’s actually the same build that developers discovered in iOS 4.3 that suggested that the next iPhone would have the same A5 chip as the iPad 2.

Last month, iDevice hacker Chronic uncovered the N94 device buried in the iOS 4.3 firmware. The code also revealed that the mysterious device was sporting a S5L8940 processor, or the A5.

Match this evidence with recent reports that Apple has been seeding iPhone prototypes to developers with dual core processors, and this all makes for an interesting coincidence.

While it’s not as definite as the phone that was left in a bar, it sure seems to paint a picture of what’s to come from Apple’s smartphone line. It looks like we should expect to see a 3rd carrier added here in the U.S., and at least a processor upgrade.

I’m wondering the same thing as everyone else, is this thing going to be the iPhone 4S or the iPhone 5? Maybe they’ll surprise us with LTE and HSPA and call it the iPhone 4G.

What do you think?

    All I know is that my 3G is on its last legs, that it probably won’t hold out until fall, and that I don’t want to get a 4 if it’s going to be made obsolete by September.

      Mine too!!! I’ve been holding as long as
      I could hoping my 3G will hold. I would love to wait until the 5 comes out, but depending on when it will be released.

    It will be iPhone 4S will be out in Sep. Then they will nonger sell the 3GS so only th iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S. Then next year the iPhone 5 will be out, new design.

    I agree

    I would hope that isn’t true. Only because if Apple is making people wait for this phone 3 months longer than usual, then I am really expecting something to change. I’d be pretty pissed if I waited all this time and all I got was the same thing, but with an A5 chip. This is starting to get outta hand now the more I think about it. This white model being released screws up everything!

    I hope we don’t get duped with an iPhone 4S and an iPhone 5 in the same year… that would suck! Hopefully we just get the iPhone 5th gen released and not an upscaled version of the 4 followed by a full blown upgrade (5).

  • An Apple on T-Mobile would only make sense. No need to wait for 4G to actually be 4G. The iPhone would compete quite well against the 4G fad on T-Mobile. Fad, I say? 4G really isn’t anything until its able to be used.
