MacRumors suggest that this is the future casing for the rumoured iPhone 4 ‘upgrade’, set to arrive with a cheaper price-tag and smaller storage.
Apparently, there are several “ notable differences in the frame“, mainly the antenna breaks being located at the base of the phone – previously found on the left of UK models.
MacRumors say: “The reason for the movement of the antenna breaks is to accommodate different frequencies of the different mobile technologies.
“This “iPhone 4S” appears to have a slot for a SIM card, suggesting that at a minimum it will support the GSM (UK) standard like the original AT&T iPhone 4.
“It is believed the iPhone 5 will support both GSM and CDMA, but we haven’t heard anything definitive about the band support for this iPhone 4S.”
A cheaper iPhone model, perhaps following Apple’s naming convention and arrive as the iPhone 4S, is expected to arrive alongside the next iteration of the iPhone.
