64GB iPhone 4 prototype leaked

A gadget blog is claiming to have obtained and tested a 64GB iPhone 4 engineering prototype direct from the Foxconn factory. "The owner of this engineered prototype told us that he got it from a source who has a small quantity of these prototypes. They are definitely leaked from Foxconn’s factory in Shenzhen.", "according to the owner, he believes that the next iPhone will bring 64GB storage capacity to users," reported the blog.

There is no news on the price or, in fact, anything else but it seems Apple may be following the capacity increments of the recently released iPad 2. From what we can see in the photos, the obtained device appears to follow the same style as the previous leak, including 'xxGB' markings, a different camera surround, no symbols for volume control and model and FCC identifications of XXXXX and BCG-AXXXXX respectively.

Foxconn, the phone's manufacturer, has only ever shipped 16GB and 32GB models of the iPhone 4 and this leak may be part of a collection of different prototypes with numerous new features on each one, but at least we know this is the real deal for now.

I have an iPod and an iPhone, and people always ask why I have both. Simple - my iPhone is a phone. I don't want to eat up the battery playing music through it, plus it only has a small capacity. Even if it did have a larger capacity a large chunk of the space would be taken up by other things - on an iPod all thats on it is music, as that's what it's for!


I find it very funny when people call the iPhone "just a phone". The only reason I don't have all my songs on the "phone" is because I can't. I don't spend my day figuring out excuses to why it's useless to have all my songs on my portable device.

I have over 55,000 songs on my itunes, they really need to try harder.

So you've spent close to $55,000 on songs? You need to find a better hobby then =/

ok then, you can supply apple a 500Gb SSD that costs less than 100$

At the price of an iPhone I would expect nothing less than a 500GB SSD

You are aware that iPhone is just an iPod...right? The iPod Touch is the foundation for the iPhone. Apple yes released iPhone before the Touch, but the Touch was developed first. Even Job said the Touch was teh training wheels for iPhone.

64GB iPhone? How is this amazing news? We've seen Apple's iTouchs and and iPhones released over time with double the amount space as the last. It was only a matter of time before the 64GB iPhone came out.

Although it is nice to know that the 64GB iPhone will hit the shelves soon.

Why would it be running an old version?

so the guy showing us the iPhone can confirm the storage + its come from foxcon and so it wont have the latest version of iOS yet...

Obtained and tested.. prototype...???

Surely its exactly the same as all the other iphone 4's just with a bit more memory!!

Ive got a 32gb 3gs, use about 8gb of space, and listen to about 5 albums worth of music... Wouldnt want to carry round 1000's of songs, id never know what to listen too!!

According to http://www.macrumors.com/

Update: The serial number indicates that this particular prototype was produced in early 2010. So, while Apple may be working on a 64GB iPhone in the future, this particular one was an old prototype that pre-dated the launch of the iPhone 4.

They may have been working on the 4G's successor already. Wouldn't surprise me if the next phone isnt the iPhone 5 but the iPhone 4GS

More rumors from Apple after the iPad 2 announcement!?, the media needs to find something to attract readers attention.
