Yesterday we wrote about the 64 GB iPhone 4, and today it turns out that phone is indeed real. The folks over at M.I.C. Gadget got hands on with the 64 GB iPhone 4 prototype, which appears to have been leaked from the Foxconn factory.
The prototype is similar to the one Gizmodo ‘found’ in a bar. There are no “+/-” symbols on the volume controls, a lack of silver ring around the back camera, and on the backside of the case reads “XXGB”.
Words from the owner:
Apparently, this 64GB iPhone 4 is not for sale in grey markets of Hong Kong. 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 Foxconnâ€™s factory in Shenzhen. Whatâ€™s more, according to the owner, he believes that the next iPhone will bring 64GB storage capacity to users.
Here’s the hands on video:
It would make sense for Apple to increase the capacity of storage, as I don’t think networks are ready to rely on a dedicated cloud-based solution for extra storage. As with the evolution of storage on iPods, it is inevitable iPhone capacities will increase as well.
What do you think? Could we see a 64 GB iPhone 5 coming this summer?
