With WWDC 2012 (Apple's premier yearly event) coming up (next week from the 11th through 15th), there's no shortage of rumors about what will come of it. Focusing on Developers and Apps? A new iPhone? Twelve variations of the iPad 6? If we're lucky, some of these rumors are attached to pictures. While they don't necessarily count as proof that the rumor is truth, it does at least stir the pot up a little bit.
And lucky is exactly what we are, since 9to5Mac has managed to acquire a few snapshots of what looks like the latest iPhone casing.
As seen above, there will be both black and white variations. The back casing itself seems metallic, which is new to the iPhone. Near the bottom, there's also a smaller connector port, in contrast to the larger one that Apple currently uses. The audio jack has been relocated to the bottom right, and there is now a small gap between the camera lens and the LED flash.
Along with these cases, 9to5Mac also has a few photos of the screens, backs, and frames. Be sure to check out the source link below for more snapshots.
What happens when you mix a phone with a whopping 41-megapixel camera? Either you get a giant piece of broken rubble (note: don't try to shove the two together to physically mix them), or you get the Nokia 808 PureView.
Running on the Symbian Belle operating system, Nokia's hyped-up imaging flagship phone was announced in late February, but has still yet to come out with an actual release date. On top of that, the phone was to be available in several countries but not the U.S.
Fortunately, it seems Nokia has found a workaround for this. Speaking to PC Mag, the Finnish phone manufacturer admitted that an unlocked version could be rolled out to the U.S. within a few months. The downside to this, however, is that customers will have to pay full price for the phone, with no subsidized pricing available.
Currently, the smartphone is priced for roughly $711 in the UK. One could argue that, if someone wanted a powerful camera, they should just check one. But there's nothing quite like holding a 41-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics technology, that can also connect to the internet and make phone calls, now is there?
