Apple Working On 64 GB iPhone?


M.I.C. Gadget points to apparent iPhone 4 prototypes on the chinese “grey market” with 64 GB storage capacities. Of course the image could be fake, but the “XX” on the back of the device brings back memories of the iPhone 4 prototype from last year.

This suspicious 64GB model has started selling in Sin Tak, the greatest grey market in Hong Kong, and the sellers claimed that these are engineered models and available in small quantity. Interestingly, the back of the phone states iPhone XXGB! That reminds us the leaked prototype last year, the one Gizmodo bought it. It also states the Model no. as XXXXX, and the FCC ID as BCG-XXXXXX. On the screen, you can see is indeed a 64GB capacity and the model is 995-6049LL. And the phone is not locked!

As you know, the current iPhone 4 is available in 16 or 32 GB sizes but a 64 GB size is rumored for the iPhone 5. Other reports point to this 64 GB model as being an abandoned model of the iPhone 4.

Will this 64 GB iPhone model be available for the iPhone 5 or does Apple have other plans? What do you think?

    They better have 32/64gb iPhones this time around…

    maybe the 16GB will be the “cheaper” version they are talking about? lol

    Maybe someone upgraded this puppy with bigger ssd

    Of course that’s the natural progression. Apple will do it if they can keep the cost the same of the largest capacity iPhone. I have 32GB right now and rarely have it even close to full.

    I would love to see a 64 GB iPhone. I have to restrict which content to sync to my phone. I want all my photos on my 32 GB iPhone 4, I have 50% of my music, and I have no movies synced. With 64 GB I could have all my photos, all of my music, and some movies. That’s a step in the right direction.

    I think it makes perfect sense to have a 64 GB iPhone 5. 32 GB has been the upper limit on iPhones for a while now…a couple of years in this industry is a lifetime. Especially if the iPhone 5 has other innovations, it doesn’t make much sense to exclude this big progression from it.

    I don’t see them taking this road, given that cloud based music is around the corner. And for most people a 32GB capacity is more than enough. I can’t see them sellin a 64GB iPhone marked at 399$ no body would buy it!

    omfg…i have an iphone 4 and these iphone 5 rumors are killing meee!!!!!!!!!!!

    64GB is unnecessary. Streaming is where it is at. I have 380Gb of music and have access to my entire collection through the Audiogalaxy app which works amazingly.

    Hey people who say 32gb is enough because of steaming, that’s not a great option because of limited costly bandwidth, as well as people who want to use their iPhones in areas with poor cell coverage. An iPhone is basically a computer these days and the more storage the better. I would love to be able to store more of my music collection on my phone.
