A group of images claiming to show a front panel of a next-generation iPhone have been published online. The new photos, published by MacPost, show a complete front panel with glass front, LCD screen and openings for the front-facing camera and a circular Home button. The part in question is again labeled “N94”—believed to be the codename for a next-generation, A5-powered handset—and carries a date of March 3, compared to June 7 for the white front plate posted last week. It also sports a new circular feature near the ambient light/proximity sensor holes, although its purpose is unclear.
