Over the past week or so, there have been multiple leaks of what appears to be a white faceplate for the next-gen iPhone, or iPhone 4G, which would be quite a departure from the usual color scheme that Apple has favored lately. Ever since the original iPhone, the faceplate has always been black, either mated to an aluminum back or, like for the past few years, a black or white plastic back.
Now we have visual proof of the leaked white faceplate mounted on the now-familiar body of a prototype iPhone 4G, very similar to what is expected to be announced by Apple early next month. Whether Apple releases an all-white version of its smartphone is still up in the air, because this could merely be the fine work of a Chinese company doing a knock-off version of the device.
One more picture after the break, plus a set of gorgeous renders done by an apparent Apple fan.
When I think of Apple products, white and aluminum are the colors I think of first, maybe due to all those years of using iMacs and iBooks. Both of my last two iPhones, a 3G and 3GS, have been the white versions, so the thought of having that color continue around to the front has me even more excited to see what Apple has in store at WWDC.
