iPhone 4.0 has been revealed with video and photos showing the iPhone 4.0 in the flesh and revealing all the iPhone 4.0 specs including the iPhone front-facing camera we’ve all been waiting for. Read on for all the new iPhone 4.0 specs detailed in full.

Those iPhone 4.0 photos from Engadget have just been proved to be the real thing and then some with Gizmodo revealing that its got its hands on the new iPhone and showing it in photos and video.

The new iPhone specs reveal that the iPhone 4.0 does have a front facing video chat camera along with an improved camera at the back. The lens is noticeably larger than the one on the iPhone 3GS and there’s now a flash. Like the iPad, the iPhone 4.0 uses a micro-SIM which will irritate carriers no end.

The iPhone 4.0 has a new improved display but since the phone nabbed by Gizmodo is currently only showing the “Connect to iTunes” screen it’s not clear whether it’s the 16:9 display we’ve previously heard about. The new iPhone was apparently running iPhone OS 4.0 before it was remotely deactivated.

As the iPhone 4.0 photos from earlier showed, the volume controls have been split into two buttons. There also appears to be an additional mic at the top of the new iPhone which would suggest there’ll be built-in noise cancellation. That will please people used to slightly shonky iPhone call quality.

The back of the iPhone 4.0 is entirely flat and looks to be made of the ceramic material that was discussed in an Apple patent back in 2006. The screen is slightly smaller than the iPhone 3GS and Gizmodo reports that the phone is 3g heavier.

The iPhone 4.0 was reportedly found in a bar in Redwood City, disguised in a custom made plastic case made to look like an iPhone 3GS. The images and video on Gizmodo tie-up with the photos previously revealed on Engadget.

Veteran Apple observer, John Gruber, of the Daring Fireball blog says Apple has definitely lost an iPhone prototype and wants it back. This really does look like the real thing and we can’t wait to get our hands on the new iPhone.

What about you? Tell us what you think – is this the iPhone 4.0? And if it is will you be buying the new iPhone?

    It looks pretty awesome. We’ll see how it compares to the HTC desire..

    Combined with multitasking and merged mailboxes, this new design has me sold. I’ll be ditching my BlackBerry ASAP on launch.

  • Tim

    Your ditching a BB for this???? Have you lost your marbles?

    • http://www.electricpig.co.uk Ben Sillis

      I do love my Berry’s keyboard but i can’t cope with RIM’s shonky browser anymore.

  • GalacticUncle

    This had better be a prototype design as it is not up to Apples usual standards. Some of the fakes look better!!

    For one thing, someone is gonna get handed their American equivalent of the P45!!

    • JJ

      You mean apple’s equivalent? That’s a .45

    My 3G contract has expired ready for the new iPhone this Summer. Can’t wait! It’s going to trample all over the Blackberry and the HTC why even bother to compare them!?

    • http://www.electricpig.co.uk Ben Sillis

      Yeah I can’t wait. I think The iPhone’s homescreen is still a major failing, but this and the new features of iPhone OS 4 mean I’ll be ditching my BlackBerry for this post haste.

      Apple are now sending the site that published the photos and analysis letters requesting the return of the device. It’s real alright!

  • Lorna

    Looks Ok… About time some of those features were included.

    the “leaks” are necessary these days folks, short us of necessity for SP1, SP2, SP3 or 3.1.3 or basic un-jailbreak. they do it right: leak the phone, test it for real ( but 12 hours is not enough) and give us the real deal. I DO hate things that are not what they say they are.
    That guy will Not be fired, he got a ‘free’ party night with the geeks, he was paid for it, and he did his job. Apple just did it wrong: they should have allowed a 24h wiping time: after an Apple-paid party, for sure you can’t say anything for the next 12 hours, IF you wake up, so yes, IF it was planned it was not thought carefully.
