Technology bloggers have posted photos of what may be the next version of the iPhone. If the gadget is real, Apple's next iPhone could have a longer battery life and be used for video chatting.

Analysts expect an updated iPhone this summer.

AOL blog Engadget posted photos of the device over the weekend. Gizmodo, a competing gadget blog, obtained the phone itself and published details Monday. Both blogs say the phone was found in a Silicon Valley bar.

Apple Inc. didn't respond to messages seeking comment.

The pictures show a device with a black face and a single button. The sides are squared, not curved like a current iPhone. The phone has a front-facing camera that could be used for video conferencing. Gizmodo found a bigger battery inside.
