iPhone 4G Tore to Pieces in Vietnam, Only Costs $4,000

May 12, 2010, By Alex Ion

A bunch guys from Vietnam got their hands on what’s supposed to be the new iPhone 4G, tore it to pieces and then put video with the whole job on the Internet. A bit different than Gizmodo’s new iPhone prototype, this one is clearly a pre-production version (if we’re to consider the XXX placeholders on the backside stamp) that doesn’t feature any OS, but more like a “bonfire” test routine.

Unlike the prototype Gizmodo had on their bench that cost $5,000 to buy, this Vietnamese iPhone 4G only cost the guys $4,000. And we really think this is an authentic prototype, as upon opening, the fourth-generation iPhone showcased an Apple branded processor, and a pair of screws (diff from the ones Gizmo had on theirs) that resemble with those on the iPhone 3G and 3GS.

Speaking of the processor (certainly looks like an A4 for us), there’s an “N90” black sticker on the back — which is exactly what the new chipset has been christened by Cupertino, at least internally.

Looks like the iPhone 4G has been pretty much detailed in the last few weeks, but I do have a question. Will Apple go after these guys, like they did with Gizmodo?

What do you folks think?
