New Video Goes Hands-On With Purported Next-Gen iPhone's Metal Back
Back in May, images of the next-generation iPhone's casing suggested that the upcoming smart phone - be it the "iPhone 5" or simply "the new iPhone" - would feature an all new design: essentially, that the handset would be thinner, lighter, and stronger than previous models. Now, a hands-on video of what is claimed to be the next-generation iPhone appears to corroborate with the aforementioned findings - suggesting that we should all be very excited for the release of Apple's sixth-gen iPhone, whenever that may be. The video comes from eTradeSupply (via CydiaBlog), and we've embedded it below for your viewing pleasure. According to the hands-on video, the purported next-gen iPhone will be bigger - compared to the iPhone 4, it's larger, potentially evidencing the presence of that four-inch screen we've been hearing so much about - but surprisingly, the handset also looks to be thinner than its predecessors. The new iPhone also appears to feature a beautiful metal back (adorned, as per, with an Apple logo), and also includes a redesigned set of grill-speakers, a resized, smaller dock, and also a relocated earphone-jack (placed on the bottom of the iPhone next to the dock, rather than at the head of the handset).

It looks like Apple will announce and release the next-generation iPhone in fall, with next week's WWDC dealing with software releases (and possibly a Mac refresh), but avoiding iOS hardware. Hopefully, the above is an indication of the kind of handset we're going to queue-up for come fall - after the launch of the iPhone 4S last year, I think most of us are looking forward to an all-new design for our beloved iPhone handsets. Below, we've embedded the aforementioned video for you to check out. Take a look at it, and let us know if you're excited for the next-gen iPhone in the comments!
