New Photo Confirms Partially Assembled iPhone 4S

Earlier today, we noted that a new leaked photo appearing to be a partially-assembled next-generation iPhone seemed to be showing an “iPhone 4S” design running on an A5 system-on-a-chip.

MacPost now shares a photo of the other side of the partial device, revealing that it is indeed an iPhone 4-like design. The new photo even shows the iPhone 4S turned on in its partially assembled state, requesting connection to iTunes for activation.



The new photo also clarifies the battery situation, revealing it to still be a 3.7 V, 5.3 Whr battery delivering 1430 mAh of charge, compared to the slightly lower-capacity 1420 mAh battery found in the iPhone 4. The 4.2 V figure spotted on the original photo posted earlier today was from the backside of the battery and appears to have been referring to the maximum charge voltage, as opposed to the 3.7 V nominal voltage under load.

Apple has also been rumored to be introducing a substantially redesigned iPhone 5 alongside this iPhone 4S, although there has been little concrete evidence of such a device showing up in parts leaks or supply chain channel checks. Third-party cases for the rumored iPhone 5 appear to show a substantially larger but thinner design than found in the iPhone 4.

Update: High resolution version of photo from Pandaxtech which appears to be the source for the images.

Kristen Wiig & Paul Rudd’s Awkward Blind Date

Even if you already caught “Bridesmaids” in theaters, you’ll want to check it out again at home. Why? Because unlike most comedies on DVD and Blu-ray that boast of hilarious special features, Bridesmaids actually delivers the goods.

EW has an exclusive clip from one of the behind-the-scenes features in which star Kristin Wiig, her writing partner Annie Mumolo, and producer Judd Apatow talking about the Bridesmaids writing process — including how quickly Wiig and Mumolo cranked out their first draft.

Rainn Wilson Shames TV World Over Steve Carell Emmy Snub

Despite crafting one of the funniest and most beloved characters in recent TV memory, Steve Carell entered Sunday night without ever having been honored with an Emmy Award for his now vacated role on “The Office” as Michael Scott. It was 0-for-5 in the Outstanding Actor In A Comedy Series for the actor, with one last chance at glory hanging in the balance.

Carell was the sentimental favorite amongst fans and critics, but in a bit of a surprise, it wasn’t meant to be; Jim Parsons, of “The Big Bang Theory,” surprised once again with his second straight win in the category. The result sparked a bit of outrage, with Carell’s “Office” co-star (and loyal TV friend) Rainn Wilson tweeting his displeasure.

“The world of TV should be ashamed of itself that Steve Carell never won an Emmy for Michael Gary Scott. Goodnight,” the actor wrote.

Before the show, Carell downplayed expectations, telling MTV, “[Winning] would be a culmination of all my hopes and dreams. It would be great, but I’m putting my expectations on the fairly low side and just trying to enjoy it and see my friends. I haven’t seen my friends from The Office in a while, so that’s going to be fun.”
