Unboxing the iPhone 4 [photos]

Handset offers fresh design, new features

Apple's iPhone 4 has begun arriving at the doorsteps of many eager customers. MacNN has obtained one of the new handsets, which we've unboxed ahead of our in-depth review. Holding the device confirms the quality construction that was already apparent in Apple's marketing photos.

The fresh design marks a significant transformation from the previous three generations, which all shared a common form. The housing, flat on the front and back, diverges from the rounded surface of the earlier iPhones without sacrificing a comfortable grip.

As promised, the new display sets a new standard among smartphone LCDs. The improvement is particularly noticeable with small text and detailed images such as satellite photographs in the Maps utility.

Our first impressions of the iPhone 4 are positive, but we will take a closer look at usability and iOS 4 in our full-length review. Our series of unboxing images is included below.
