iPhone 4.0 Includes Video Calls

Forget multitasking and a larger, higher resolution screen. A European wireless operator has slipped the fact that the iPhone 4G, expected to hit the market this summer, will allow users to make video calls, which means that this upcoming smartphone will apparently have a front-facing camera along with its rumored 5 mega-pixel rear facing one.

The website of O2’s UK subsidiary naturally gives the prices iPhone users will pay for various services. Included on this list is the price for making video calls.

Of course, it’s quite possible this is a simple mixup by those responsible for putting data for a large number on phones on the website. On the other hand, this isn’t the first evidence that the next-generation iPhone will support video conferencing.

Developers looking around in the next version of the iPhone OS and the one of the iPad, 3.2, have found strings of code that will allow devices running it to make and receive video calls, as well as switch between a front-facing and rear-facing camera. The page has since been taken down.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.
