Next iPhone's motherboard possibly spotted with a dash of extra wireless
A WeiPhone forums user posts a couple of photos of what is apparently claimed to be a motherboard/logicboard for the next-generation iPhone. If legitimate, the part appears to be a prototype unit because it is missing much of the typical labeling.
Unfortunately, the new iPhone’s processor does not appear to be pictured in these photos. In May, we reported that Apple is testing next-generation iPhone hardware with a new A5-2 processor. This reportedly is an A5-based CPU (like in the iPhone 4S) but with various tweaks.
The SIM card slot, the most-centered component on the motherboard, does appear slightly smaller in size compared to the 4/4S, according to iDeviceGuys, iPhone parts specialists that we spoke to. The connection points are also more closely connected. This may or may not point to the new device using the new Nano-SIM format.
