SmartPhone Medic has posted some pictures (below) of what they are claiming to be the frame of the rumored Verizon iPhone 4 or of the fifth generation iPhone. The difference between this purported frame and the current iPhone 4 frame is the top cut in the band is missing and a new cut is present towards the top-side of the phone. The controversial cut on the iPhone 4 is still present but they may be moving that function to the new band on the upper side to avoid people causing reception issues while holding their iPhone. Above is a video from another repair shop of a hands on of the frame and internal parts.
