On Monday the Web was buzzing over the supposed spy pics of the 3G iPhone that turned up and we posted here. Today we find out that noted iPhone unlocking guru Zibri has found a reference to a 3G chipset likely for use in the iPhone.

Current iPhone’s use the Infineon Sgold2 chipset and the 2.0 firmware update for the iPhone showed a reference to SGOLD3, also known as the Infineon SGOLD3 3G chipset. While this isn’t definitive proof of the 3G iPhone, things are really starting to add up.

Important features of the supposed chipset are 7.2Mbps HSDPA connectivity, 5MP camera support, and Mpeg4/H.263 video acceleration. The chipset can also support data and voice at the same time.
