found this pic over at macrumors:


i'm not a photoshop expert, so i can't tell if this one has been modified, but the model and FCC numbers on it do make it look like a prototype model. this looks more real to my eyes than some of the others ones i've seen...

hmmm I don't know about any of these pics that have been popping up. The edges around the Apple logo sure are kinda jagged. That's the only thing that might lead me to believe there was some editing done. I sure hope they are all fake, I was hoping for a camera with a flash *sigh*

Yeah but i don't think we will see an 8gb version of the iPhone 2 hence i think phoney. But hey I could be well wrong

i know what you mean - just people out there with too much time on their hands photoshopping stuff to get attention and/or cause a frenzy among Apple fans. :mad:

i was hoping for a flash too, though it's not a deal-breaker for me. i just hope it really doesn't get a plastic case. my incase slider case does a good job of protecting my iPhone, but it's showing wear pretty obviously...

I think it's a bust. If you look in the camera whole, it looks like you can see the wood grain that is found on the table, which would lead to me to believe that it's hollow.

yes, but it's meant to be just the back casing without the internal components installed...

It does seem pretty real to me, even despite the 8GB stamp. With the codes used, it does seem like a pre-production release. It's still all speculation...

What do you mean it's mean? What does that have to do with it being fake? It's painfully obvious that it's not legit. It looks like a hollow plastic shell. Unless this guy somehow got his hands on JUST the backing of the new iPhone.

spelling error - was supposed to be "it's meant"...

the idea is that it is someone internal at Apple or at the place where they're manufactured who had access to just the case back, not the entire iPhone. so it would be just a plastic hollow shell. the model number and FCC numbers have placeholder XXX's in them, which is typical of pre-production models...

Maybe the 8g will be the $200 version that is rumored.

Didn't we see these pix or ones like them a couple of months ago, and someone ruled them out as fake?

I agree that the identification on the bottom of the case brings credibility. I also agree that an all plastic back casing brings credibility as well since there have been discussions on the web that the metal casing adversely affects the GSM signal.

That clears it all up! :) I was wondering what feelings had to do with it. If that is indeed the case (no pun intended) then Apple when down an interesting route regarding color, unless they will have more than one to choose from.

Boy I hope you're right because I have no need for so much memory and I don't want to spend another 400 or 500 bucks if I don't have to!

looks fake to me..if you zoom in in p. shop you can see discoloration around the logo and the pixels around the text look more jagged than the rest of the photo..

So your saying they might get rid of the 8Gb replacing it with 16Gb, and the 16Gb will be replaced with a 32gig?

It better be. Apple has not been known to leave storage the same with newer models of just about anything. It is usually increased.

I hope its a fraud! I'm REALLY not feeling that plastic backing. The bezel gave it a more sophisticated look. The plastic gives it a FORD look and the previous phone looks Mercedez-ish (Is that a word? ) lol
