M.I.C. Gadget points to some apparent iPhone 4 prototypes on the chinese “grey market” with 64 GB storage capacities. The images could technically be easily faked but the “XX” on the back of the device’s do help represent the units as potential Apple prototypes.
This suspicious 64GB model has started selling in Sin Tak, the greatest grey market in Hong Kong, and the sellers claimed that these are engineered models and available in small quantity. Interestingly, the back of the phone states iPhone XXGB! That reminds us the leaked prototype last year, the one Gizmodo bought it. It also states the Model no. as XXXXX, and the FCC ID as BCG-XXXXXX. On the screen, you can see is indeed a 64GB capacity and the model is 995-6049LL. And the phone is not locked!
If real and not hacked, this 64 GB iPhone 4 most likely represents a storage capacity that Apple decided to abandon for their 4th generation iPhone rather than an upcoming model. On the other hand, Apple released an out of the ordinary 16 GB original iPhone in February 2008 after the initial June 2007 4 GB and 8GB iPhone launches.
