With various design mockups appearing for the next gen iPhone, after a long time new photos have appeared that claim to show the next generation iPhone fully assembled in all its glory, complete with redesigned Dock connector and new rear panel.
Alongside mockups, several parts have been appeared before showing either the minor build state,glimpses of the rear or front but this time, the photo come out of a smartphone repair company seem to show the next iPhone’s parts put together, showing the handset in its true assembled state.
The photos of the next gen iPhone ( released by iLab), gives a true glimpse of what Apple might unleash around October time.
As you can see from the picture above, the front side of the iPhone almost resembles completely with the current gen iPhone devices (other than the smaller charging dock panel) and if Apple keeps up the trend of releasing same old boring shaped iPhones, this might be what the next gen iPhone’s front would look like.
Whereas the back panel appears to have some modification only in terms of material as it uses Metal instead of Glass. It would help in providing superior protection when dropped (no more broken glass back panels).
In a nutshell, the assembled iPhone shown in the pics above shows nothing different in terms of design, it looks like the same old boring iPhone designs we’ve been seeing for years now. If Apple actually puts up with this similar iPhone design, it would prove that Apple’s useless iPhone design patent drama would become a big hurdle for them in adopting a new design (as it may infringe someone else’s design). Let’s see what Apple has behind its sleeves when they finally unveil the next-gen iPhone device in a hostile environment (where everybody is praising Samsung for its Galaxy S3 smartphone).
