A new iMac model is expected to become official in the not too distant future, yet the Cupertino-based Apple is tight-lipped on it for the time being.
New rumors on the matter, however, provide users with the possibility to make an idea of what the upcoming product version might have to offer to them.
Apparently, the upcoming iMac will be much thinner than existing models, and will also arrive on shelves with a different shell design.
Unlike the current product versions, which sports a squared-off design, the next iMac
will pack a curved rear shell, similar to a water droplet, a recent article on MacRumors
In addition to these details, a photo of what appears to be internal components of the iMac has emerged online over at WeiPhone.com
There’s no telling on whether the photo is real or not, but the serial numbers on those components appear to be in line with what can be found in today’s iMac.
Other similarities are also there, such as the silver disc placed behind the main layer of components, which houses the Wi-Fi antenna and which is placed right beneath the plastic Apple logo on the back of the iMac.
The aforementioned photo, which can be seen attached to this article to the left, also shows the Bluetooth antenna of the upcoming machine, as well as the hard-drive and various fans.
The new device model is also said to arrive on shelves with the screen glued to the front glass, something that has been rumored before for this machine.
According to rumors, Apple is planning the release of the new model in a 21.5-inch form factor in the beginning, while aiming at bringing the updated 27-inch model to shelves at a later date.
Same reports suggest that Apple might price the new iMac models higher than current devices, yet specific info on their cost is not available for the time being.
