New images and the first video of Apple’s next-generation iPhone in action have appeared online. Posted by Vgooo, the video shows a side-by-side comparison of the new iPhone booting up next to the iPhone 4S, while the video and photos spotlight previously fuzzy details of the device’s metal and glass enclosure. A protective metal rim is clearly shown surrounding the rear glass antenna windows, while a new, smaller “nano SIM” slot is found on the side, and the top surface is shown without a headphone port, all details that were assumed from earlier leak but rendered clearly in the latest images.

Working new iPhone leaks in photos next to iPhone 4S

The taller and thinner new iPhone can be seen booting just slightly quicker than the 4S, though the setup process is stopped early on by an iOS 6 registration error. A report from M.I.C. Gadget states that a tipster told Chinese tech site that the new iPhone was “discovered” when he visited his friend at a Foxconn factory. Video and photos are embedded below. [via M.I.C. Gadget]
