The news comes to us via Commercial Times, a Chinese newspaper. The paper quoted analysts at Daiwa Securities, which suggests the highly anticipated iPhone is likely to make an appearance at Apple’s WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) in June.
If this report is to be believed, this would mean the Cupertino firm is reverting back to releasing next generation iPhones in June, unlike the iPhone 4S, which was released in October of 2011.
DigiTimes translated the report, which also claims that the iPhone 5 will sport a larger display compared to the 3.5 inch display on the iPhone 4S and its lookalike predecessor the iPhone 4.
According to the report, a glass-to-glass panel will be the display. This suggests that the upcoming iPhone will have a bigger touchscreen, but retain similar dimensions compared to its predecessors.
Unfortunately, this is all the report disclosed in terms of specs. According to other rumors, the iPhone 5 will sport the quad-core A6 chip, an NFC (Near Field Communications) chip, and 4G support. This would make the device the most powerful iOS device ever built, the fastest iOS device in terms of internet speeds, and a mobile wallet.
Do you think the iPhone 5 will come with these rumored features, or do you think the next generation iPhone will sport the same design? Give us your thoughts.
