Report: Is this a real 64GB iPhone 4?

By Hayley Tsukayama

A Web site called MIC Gadget is claiming to have obtained a real prototype of a 64GB iPhone 4 from the Foxconn factory in China. The phone bears striking similarities to the leaked prototype that Gizmodo bought last year from someone who found the handset in a bar. On the other hand, it's also running iOS 4.1, not the latest version of Apple's mobile platform, which may mean it's an earlier prototype.

MacRumors has published an update to its site saying that based on the serial number for the phone, it's a pre-iPhone 4 prototype.

MIC Gadget, a Hong Kong-based site has no real history of reliable leaks, though their analysis here does seem to hold water that this is a real prototype from Apple. Still, the site's credibility is somewhat hurt by the fact that it maintains a white iPhone is for sale in China.

MIC Gadget says that, after examining the gadget, they believe it is not hacked or faked The site says that Apple may be planning a small upgrade of the iPhone 4 to include 64GB storage capacity. The current iPhone 4 has 16GB and 32GB models available; a 64GB would provide a serious storage (and probably price) increase. Apple's estimates say that 32GB of storage gets you about 7,000 songs or 40 hours of continuous video.

Check out the video from the site, and tell us what you think in the comments:
