Verizon iPhone or Possible iPhone 5: Differences Shown?

With all the speculation over the possible release of a Verizon iPhone 4 and rumoured iPhone 5 at some point this year, it is still uncertain as to whether the Verizon device will be an updated 4 or the next gen 5.

This has been further enhanced by some snap shots taken of the mythical handset from SmartPhone Medic. These clips are said to be from a “reliable source” and display a new stainless steel casing sporting a pair of black bands wrapped around the edge which could act as the device’s antenna. Obviously the iPhone 4 suffered with antenna issues and there is no doubt that Apple want to steer clear of any recurrence of this problem.

A report from AppleInsider shows pictures and a video which show the new designed iPhone casing along side the existing iPhone 4. This gives a good comparison and the ability to see where the changes have been made. It is difficult at this stage to ascertain the true depth of these pictures as although the images are clear, it seems that the background may have been altered to take out shadows and colors.

Although there are similarities between the pictured handsets such as the charging port flex ribbon, it has been noted that there are some differences on the video which could possibly be linked to greater performance video chat, the mute button positioned in a slightly different place on the possible iPhone 5 handset and the lack of a camera space.
