The hopes for a redesigned iPhone 5 has received another blow as the iPhone 4S makes an appearance in the latest beta release of iTunes 10.5, with the same design as the current iPhone 4 but with an improved antenna design.
It is Appleinsider that is reporting that references to iPhone 4S was found in the Info.plist file of the MobileDevices bundle in the iTunes beta release. The listings explain an iPhone 4S in black and white versions, looking pretty much identical to the CDMA iPhone 4 that was released earlier this year.
It is believed that this iPhone 4S will be a dual-mode iPhone, supporting both GSM and CDMA networks, and will feature the A5 processor, 8-megapixel camera, support HSPA+, dual graphics, and 512/1gb RAM.
While this is not conclusive evidence against a possible redesigned iPhone 5, as some speculate it could be another ‘smoke and mirror’ game by Apple, more and more evidence is working against a new redesigned iPhone 5 being introduced on Tuesday.
8GB iPhone 4 appears in Brasil
On another note, the much rumored iPhone 4 8GB has popped up in Brasil as photos of the device from what is said to be the Foxconn manufacturing plant in the country has appeared thanks to Gizmodo Brazil.
There are references to the SKU N90A on the quality control form, a reference that is widely believed to be for the new 8GB iPhone 4.
Apple traditionally delivers a 8GB version of the current model at a lower price point when releasing a new and upgraded iPhone model into the market, and this could be it.
