Versions of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S which have had their cameras removed are being sold by a wireless carrier in Singapore.
The camera-less iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S are presumably being targeted at a specific niche in the country, namely military personnel who may be fond of Apple products but have been unable to bring an iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S into the country’s military camps, that is, until now.
It was released on October 14 and has since been introduced to other countries since then.
One of its main selling points was its new 8MP camera which has a 5-element lens group, just a 0.5-second lag in between shots, and 1080p capture.
The release of the camera-less iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S was announced by the country’s M1 wireless carrier last week.
According to reports, soldiers in the country have been banned from bringing devices capable of capturing images and video inside the country’s military camps since 2007 when a series of photos of training activities of soldiers were published online.
However, though the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S have had features taken away, they’re even more expensive than their normal counterparts.
