The most noticeable new features, via Gizmodo:
— Improved regular back-camera (the lens is quite noticeably larger than the iPhone 3GS) with flash — Improved display with much higher resolution than on a 3GS — Split buttons for volume — The back is entirely flat, made of either glass (more likely) or ceramic or shiny plastic in order for the cell signal to poke through — An aluminum border going completely around the outside; the shape is squared off instead of having a curved back — 16% larger battery
The blockier casing has been duly noted as a throwback to mid-century Braun electronics (which has already been recorded as a direct aesthetic influence on Jonathan Ives’s original iPod design). We’re digging the Dieter Rams-ish look; what say ye?
Tell us what you think: Real? Fake? Enough new features to justify replacing the current 3G model?
Update: In case you were curious, how much Gizmodo paid for the scoop.
