We’ve heard countless rumors on Apple’s next generation smartphone the iPhone 5. Now, a new report suggests that the fifth generation iPhone will be arriving in June of this year.
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.
It seems more rumors surrounding the Apple iPhone 5 are surfacing yet again. New reports suggest that the next generation iPhone will be much thinner compared to the iPhone 4 and its successor the iPhone 4S. Will it be as slim as the Motorola Razr? Unfortunately, no specifics were disclosed, but we’re hoping that it’ll be thinner or as thing compared to what the competition has to offer.
Furthermore, the iPhone 5 is said to pack a quad-core processor under the hood. Lastly, one unit is said to support both 3G and 4G networks, instead of two versions.
The report comes to us from Kathy Huberty, an analyst from Morgan Stanley, via BGR. According to BGR, “Huberty says Apple’s next-generation ‘iPhone 5′ will feature a new slimmer case. The iPhone 5 will also feature a new quad-mode chip from Qualcomm that could allow it to operate on all 3G and 4G LTE networks.”
Since this is a prediction, take this information with a pinch of salt. However, it does sound promising. An iPhone packing a quad-core processor, a slim profile, and support for both 3G and 4G networks will definitely make it more attractive to Apple enthusiasts. It might even cause other users to jump ship and convert to Apple.
Do you think these predictions are accurate? Give us your thoughts.
The Cupertino firm is on a quest to make everyone around the world eat, sleep, and breathe Apple products. In emerging markets, it is said to sell somewhere from 1.4 to 1.6 million units of the iPhone 3G S in the first quarter of 2012. According to sources within Apple’s supply line, production for this year’s fourth quarter may reach 2 million.
There have been two next generation iPhones that have been released after the iPhone 3G S. These are the iPhone 4 and the latest iPhone 4S, which was launched last October. However, the 3G S 8 GB version is Apple’s entry level handset, which is offered for free on budget plans with a contract.
Unlike previous versions, new units of the iPhone 3G S will ship running iOS 5. This means that users will not have to spend too much on the expensive iPhone 4S or spend a lot of time downloading the latest iteration of Apple’s mobile platform.
Are you one of the people interested in getting your hands on a brand new iOS 5-powered iPhone 3G S, or would you rather get your hands on the upcoming Windows Phone Mango-powered Nokia Lumia 710 or an Android handset such as the Samsung Galaxy Y? Give us your thoughts.
