Apple is coming in its whole new avatar called iPhone 5. There are many new rumours coming up concerning its look, its memory space, new functions and of course the price factor. Well, those who are having itching in the palm and can’t wait to hold new ‘appy baby’, have to be just satisfied right now with a sneak peak on its info from some reliable sources.
Well, the most important question is when we would get to see the first glimpse of the phone.
According to some people attending MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2011 in Spain, Apple is going to unveil iPhone 5 in the fourth week of June.
“Though I can’t reveal the exact date, Apple has recently fixed the date, one day in the last week of June,” said an industry expert, adding, “The follow-up model of iPhone 4 will be launched in five to six countries first, including the U.S. and South Korea.”
Now, how the fifth-generation iPhone would be a different form factor than those that are currently available – according to the Chinese Economic Daily News (via AppleInsider), with the exception of Qualcomm chipsets – which would replace the current Infineon chipsets in the iPhone 4.
We also expect the basics of the iPhone 5 specs to have improved memory storage, battery life and a faster processor and performance.
The Economic Daily News also reported that white iPhone 5 glass is being shipped, with a supplier called Wintek being the sole touch panel vendor for the white iPhone.
iPhone 5 will also feature a larger, 4-inch screen. Digitimes quotes the source as saying that Apple is expanding the screen size “to support the tablet PC market as the vendor only has a 9.7-inch iPad in the market.”
The iPhone 5 will also get a massive graphical boost as it moves to a dual-core GPU – this could herald true 1080p output from the new device.
There’s been some speculation that Apple might include Near Field Communication (NFC) technology in the iPhone 5G, turning it into a kind of credit/debit card.
The price of the iPhone 5 is likely to remain the same or perhaps even higher due to UK VAT rates.
I am sure that this information must have triggered up your excitement. So, guys save every ounce of it to welcome our much awaited Apple iPhone 5!
