New iPhone 4: FCC 4G Announcement June 2010

By Gary Johnson - Jun 7, 2010

Most of us were probably already aware what the new iPhone 4 would look like before it was officially announced earlier by Steve Jobs at the WWDC 2010. But what all the internet leaks didn’t tell us was some of the actual specs of the device internals.

Vladislav Savov from Engadget.com is reporting that Apple kept the FCC documents secret until the announcement. Identified is the new iPhones model number which is A1332, and the special 802.11n compatibility which is not found on many phones.

The documents also reveal the Bluetooth module, but the best bit is the five bands of 3G internet compatibility. These are UMTS I/II/V/VI/VIII, but gets puzzling because Apple leaves out VI band on the iPhone 4 specs page, as this is the most common one used in Japan. The iPhone 4 becomes the second pentaband 3G phone announced after that of the Nokia N8.
