New iPhone 4G (4G stands for forth generation) photos were published by Engadget yesterday (see also our coverage). Now that a couple of hours have past it is almost certain that they are fake.
Engadget has edited the story with an update that similar photos already appeared in February. MacRumors puts the final nail in the coffin of these iPhone 4G photos referring to a story that says that these photos are of a Japanese iPhone clone.
Update: The Japanese clone story was false and now more evidence uncovered by Engadget make the leaked photos of the iPhone 4G more real. This story has seen a wild up and down over the weekend. Read this new report for details.
I would be very disappointed if real iPhone 4G photos appear more than 2 month before Apple unveils the 2010 iPhone. Apple’s secrecy is notorious and very effective.
For you, who do not believe that Apple is unveiling yet another iPhone. The Engadget post got over 1,500 diggs. The interest and demand for a new iPhone are, like every year, dramatic.
This year the hope is that Apple is making a major iPhone upgrade. Last year, the iPhone 3GS was basically just a performance upgrade.
