An iPhone 4 running a “test version” of iOS has been discovered by Vietnamese site tinhte.vn, and reveals a new Expose-like multitasking UI and a revamped Spotlight search function. Two videos published by the site demonstrate these new features, along with some pretty interesting hardware in the form a white, 64GB iPhone 4.

In this test version of iOS, double-tapping the home button displays your multitasking applications in a manner similar to that of Expose on your Mac. Instead of icons for the applications you have running – like you currently see in iOS 4 – you see a preview window for each application.

At the top of the multitasking interface seems to be the new home of the Spotlight search function.

With regards to hardware, the device looks just like a white iPhone 4, except for the “XXGB” stamp on the back –indicating this is a prototype device. A quick run through the settings app shows tabs for developer, carrier, and internal settings, while digging deeper reveals the device boasts 58.2GBs of storage capacity.

Though this could simply be the result of some pretty convincing hacks, tinhte.vn has a pretty good track record of spilling the beans on some of Apple’s unreleased products. The site previously published pictures of the iPhone 4 – as well as a camera touting iPod touch prototype – before Apple announced either product.

Another sign that indicates this is a genuine Apple prototype is the presence of a game called ‘Touch Fighter’, which Apple used to demonstrate the iPhone’s accelerometer at one of its keynotes.
