If you haven’t yet heard that Gizmodo paid $5,000 for a prototype 4th-generation iPhone you must have been living in a cave for the last few days, anyway back on subject, it seems that Gizmodo got bored of the iPhone 4G / HD therefore they have recently took the device apart to see what could be powering the next-gen iPhone.
To be honest everything within the prototype was pretty much what we expected, however the smartphone’s mainboard / motherboard / logicboard / systemboard (whatever you want to call it) was extremely small, this shows the work which Apple are putting into their next flagship handset.
Earlier on we spoke about the battery, it is rated at 5.25 Watt and 3.7 Volts, this apparently equates to a capacity 1420 mAh, this capacity is smaller than a lot of competitive handsets, however I am sure that OS 4.0 will be designed to be as efficient as possible.
The image below shows how large the 3GS’s motherboard is in comparison to the leaked iPhone’s screan, the image here shows all of the 4G’s internal components, check out the tiny motherboard!
