The 2012 upgrade of iPhone – most likely to be called the iPhone 5 – is around the corner. As per rumors, Apple is to uncover the device at its Worldwide Developers Conference 2012 in June. As usual, the tech world has been creating buzz over the new iPhone for sometime.
The summary of most pf the iPhone 5 rumors is that the device will have a sweeping modification in design and features. It is high time Apple should change the very form factor, screen size and interface of the new iPhone. There are loads of fantastic rumors on the expected features of iPhone. And it’s no surprise, Apple hasn’t yet confirmed any of the rumors, though.
Bigger than iPhone 4S
The rumor is strong that iPhone 5 will have a big display. Well, Apple is largely anticipated to break its tradition of 3.5-inch small display and to sport a 4-inch plus on the new iPhone. Like all other Apple rumors, this one also has no base or confirmation from the company. But as far as the new trend in smartphone market is taken into account, Apple can’t withstand competition in market with an iPhone 5 that has a crammed 3.5-inch display. Indeed, iPhone’s key Android rival in market the Samsung Galaxy S’ third version has just come out with a 4.8-inch display.
Quad core processor
It is another prominent iPhone 5 rumor that the device will sport a quad core processor. You might have noticed that the recent handsets come with quad core processors. Including the just uncovered Galaxy S3, all the latest phones tout quad core processors. So it is high time Apple should design its next gen iPhone 5 with Apple’s own quad core compatible chipset, possibly the Apple A6. Apple slotted in a new A5X chipset inside its new iPad, which Apple claims will perform several times better than Nvidia’s quad core processor. So we can certainly expect for a more powerful quad core chip inside the iPhone 5.
Better screen resolution
The current iPhone 4S already sports a high resolution Retina Display. The new iPad has landed in stores with a Retina Display with a massive resolution of 2048 by 1536 pixels. Hence, we can definitely look for a more powerful Retina Display on the upcoming iPhone 5 also. Of course, Apple will have to face the challenge of keeping up the pixel density along with increasing the screen resolution.
4G LTE and NFC
Apple may have rolled out iPhone versions like iPhone 4 and 4S. But both of them ironically miss 4G LTE capability. Hopefully, the tech world looks for 4G LTE on the new iPhone. As well, it will further have Near Field Communication chips, thus iPhone can smartly compete with the new line of smartphones.
