Apple next generation smartphone is expected to include a front-facing video-chat camera, according to a recent Gizmondo report based on a prototype of the iPhone 4G found in a California bar.

Even as the iPhone continues to help drive Apple's substantial revenue growth, new features in the smartphone's upcoming version could allow the company to drill into entirely new business areas, including video social networking and conferencing. On April 19, tech blog Gizmodo posted an extensive breakdown of a device, reportedly found in a California bar, that it said was the next version of the iPhone. That breakdown described features such as a "front-facing video chat camera," a larger "back-camera" with flash, support for "Micro-SIM instead of standard SIM," a higher-resolution display, and "what looks to be a secondary mic for noise cancellation, at the top, next to the headphone jack."
