Today has been a good day for iPhone rumors. Now UBS analyst Maynard Um (via Electronista) has piped up with his list of iPhone 4G predictions. Based on “checks” within the industry, he believes that the new iPhone will sport an AMOLED display. Um also predicted that no CDMA iPhone would be bound for Verizon. Instead he believes any CDMA iPhone will be bound for China.

Um went on to say that there is a chance the new iPhone will also pack a backside touch surface for additional control. He also raised the possibility of a 5 MP camera (which is pretty much a guarantee) and a 64 GB storage option, which is also fairly likely. These new phones are expected to launch in June for $199 and $299.

When the new iPhone launches, last year's edition will drop in price. Um expects the 16 GB iPhone 3GS to cost just $99 when the iPhone 4G hits. If true, Apple would really put the squeeze on everyone else in the industry. A 16 GB 3GS for $99? That's tempting to me, and I've never purchased an Apple product in my life.

Of course, these are all analyst predictions, so take them with a grain of salt. We are likely to see a 5 MP camera and a $99 3GS, but pretty much everything else is kind of out there. Don't rule the possibility out, but keep a healthy layer of scepticism over your expectations.
