First Leaked Photos Of The Verizon iPhone?

Website Richy Rich has posted a series of blurry images of what they claim to be a N92 CDMA iPhone or as most people would call it, the Verizon iPhone. The device is running a testing operating system (the “inferno” we mentioned a few times in the past) and seems identical to the current iteration of the iPhone 4 in shape. The photos are not that much revealing, and they seem to come from the “usual” Vietnamese sources.

Just yesterday BGR reported that the Verizon iPhone hit the “AP” stage, which is the last step before mass production.

Today, I’m happy to report a follow up to that post with live shots of an “N92DVT” device, which was reported to be the CDMA version of the iPhone 4 back in August by John Gruber. To my knowledge, these shots originated from a repair shop in Vietnam, and according to the “DVT” (Design Verification Test) label, it is in final testing stages before production.

I was told that the side of the device does in fact have a micro-sim slot, like the current GSM-only variant; although the device is no longer in my sources possession, therefore I wasn’t able to obtain photos for proof. This coincides with Boy Genius’ aforementioned post, which enables us to speculate if this means it has global roaming capabilities, if it’s a one device for all unit, or both.
