Photo of Matte-Back iPhone EmergesApple, iPhone, Photos, Rumor February 13th, 2009
Obviously this is a rumor and there is no way of knowing whether or not this is true but these images appear to be a new iPhone model number A1303.
The new case seems to have a matte finish instead of the current glossy look and the case also seems to have the usual model no., FCC ID, etc. etched onto the material which leads the iPod Observer to believe that the case is made out of metal instead of plastic. I don’t see Apple moving back to metal because of issues with the antenna but I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple found another material that was as strong as metal but let cellular signals through.
I hope that Apple will show us something in the world of iPhone this summer as they have been over the past two years and maybe this will be the new model. All I can say for sure is, when the next iPhone comes out I’ll be waiting with cash in hand.
More images after the jump.
