Leaked iPad Photos Showed a Next-Gen iPhone?

During last week’s flurry of iPad rumors and leaks, photos of what looks like the next generation iPhone have been ignored for about a week. According to AppleInsider, people with “an impeccable track record in matters such as these” say that Engadget’s leaked iPad photos also show a next-generation iPhone prototype. However, because the photos are oddly blurry, AppleInsider asked if Engadget had photos of higher quality, which they don’t.

Interestingly, the iPhone pictured doesn’t show the shiny metal bezel around its perimeter. It could indicate that the next iPhone lacks the chrome, but it’s more likely that the iPhone is in a protective case, similar to the iPad below it.

AppleInsider’s sources indicate that this next generation phone is running on custom silicon developed by Apple, similar to the iPad’s A4 system-on-a-chip.

AI also points out that the photo shows what looks like a hole to the left of the earpiece grill. The marking could be the long-rumored front-facing camera, although it could also be a simple photo distortion.
