A grab purportedly showing the next iPhone.
A second video has emerged with what is believed to be a part of the next iPhone; this time it's the back cover.
The video, which was posted on YouTube by ETrade Supply, appears to confirm various rumored changes expected to be coming to next iPhone, which many have dubbed the iPhone 5.
The part shown in the video is apparently the back cover of the phone as well as the device's metallic antenna. It looks like a variation of the cover used for the iPhone 4 and 4S: It is no longer plain black or white but features what looks like brushed metal over the bulk of it.
ETrade Supply notes what it says are various changes to the phone in the video, including the fact that it is longer than previous iPhones and looks to fit a 4-inch screen diagonally. However, though the phone is not wider, it is thinner, which is a change that was not previously expected.
What may be the next iPhone also appears to have a new and much smaller dock connector along its bottom side. It also has redesigned speaker grills, and its headphone jack is located along the bottom.
The video also shows what looks like a microphone located between the phone's camera and flash, which had also previously been rumored. The phone's SIM card is a smaller size, which could mean the next iPhone will use a small SIM card.
Currently, most people believe that the next iPhone won't arrive until October, but some reports have said the phone is ahead of schedule. And with so many parts and rumours beginning to leak, you have to wonder if the next iPhone might not launch earlier than previously expected.
