First iPhone 3G 2009 screens leaked?

Gizmodo has released images leaked to a Hong Kong blog of whats rumored to be the next iPhone 3G to be released this summer.

"I'm looking at these images from a Hong Kong blog, and they totally look like The Real Thing™ to me. Sure they are blurry, but those applications' user interface definitely screams Apple design. The gallery shows the compass and autofocus in action—which can't work in current hardware", the author, Jesus Diaz writes.

The images feature a new compass in action, video functions, as well as the autofocus in the camera, as well as the autofocus overlay, and MMS screens

But that's not all that has been leaked. Potential parts of the new iPhone has also been leaked along with what appears to be the possibility of a new finish.

Earlier in the month, Wired released new details, including specs and release date of a possible new iPhone. Based on what these leaked images are showing, they appear to back Wired's article up. With Apple's WWDC getting closer, we could have an announcement from Apple themselves, so stay tuned!

Ofcourse man its their strategy.

Now i think all companies leak on purpose, look how much sh*t microsoft leaked...one after another....its liike they dont care at all = letting it happen

Also like look at HOW much they leak, just enough! just the perfect amount... why cant someone leak full specs/back front screenshots/ etc etc no because apple dont want their whole prouct to be out right now and seen before its released... they decide.

How ironic with just 5 days before the Palm Pre is available. Allot of iPhone contracts ending this month and Apple a little concerned about loosing those contract to the Palm Pre. This leak is quite purposeful.

Yeah. Kind of waiting for the exclusive stuff to die down...needs to be operator free. I know it would require it to be CDMA but hey, it'd be better that way.

Their acquisition of Alltel eliminated the limited coverage.

It won't help it work in other parts of the world which are primarily GSM. Besides Verizon's coverage isn't all that much better than at&t's as it is.

I wonder why the guy who took the pictures, didn't include pictures of the iPhone itself. It's just the screen as far as I could see.

Because it is probably not the new phone. Just a 3G running 3.0 beta with the new apps unlocked.

According to that Hong Kong blog, it's a development unit that does not look like the real next gen iPhone 3G. And he was asked not to take clear shots of the device to avoid trouble.

Looks good ... hope it has that rubber back and double specs as rumored (and the glowing apple logo on the back)

If they do make a matte back, I feel bad for case manufacturers.

Ah, but matte backs do get an oily sheen after a while :)

Anyways, it is better for us consumers!

Now about multi tasking....

I hope they matte the back as well. The screen is scratch resistant, but the chrome bezel and shiny back look crappy after a few months, even with care. I have a case on mine (Airjacket or something), and because it isn't perfectly smooth even that has marked the back a little.

If I am not wrong, there have been rumors that Apple is doing away with the Chrome bezel.
