iResQ, an iPhone/iPod repairing company, has published what appears to be parts for next generation’s iPhone. The iPhone 4G may be taller than what we’re all used to, judging from the pictures the different is slight and fortunately, not major.

The digitizer and LCD also have a different design than the iPhone 3G and 3GS model; they are factory glued like the one found on the iPhone EDGE/2G. The front panel is 1/4″ (6.35mm) longer than the iPhone 3GS.

Apple has not yet released the device so the end product may be completely different than what you are looking at right now.
