iPhone 4 64GB ‘prototype’ surfaces

Images and clips of what is purported to be a prototype of a 64GB edition of the iPhone 4 have surfaced online, as Apple gears up for the release of the fifth gen handset in June.

Unearthed by MicGadget, the handset in question, which it claims was “definitely leaked” from Chinese iPhone component maker Foxconn’s Shenzen factory, bears a strong resemblance to the iPhone 4 prototype, and 'acquired', ahem, by Gizmodo last year.

It is thought that Apple experimented with the idea of producing a 64GB edition of its current-gen phone, which comes in 16GB and 32GB flavours, before scrapping it on cost grounds.

The device has surfaced as Apple is preparing to lift the lid on the iPhone 5, specs for which remain under wraps.

However, if the online rumour mill is to be trusted, this time around Apple will abandon the Gorilla Glass rear casing of the iPhone 4 for an aluminium number and will employ an A5 chipset to give the handset some real processing grunt.
