Waiting for iPhone 5? [ Latest Rumours ]
Are you too like many others, waiting eagerly for the release of iPhone 5? Despite the announcement made by the iPhone owner last year, there is still no sign of its release and many people by now have started loosing the excitement of getting the new version of iPhone to their hands.
Well, to boost your excitement once again let’s talk about the latest rumour on iPhone 5 according to which there is still a hope for iPhone 5 that may see its launch in the later part of the current year.
iPhone 5 Preview
It is rumoured that the reason for which the iPhone 5 release was hauled last year and the iPhone 4S was introduced in place that was because of its larger screen size and Steve Jobs didn’t want to create a two-tier iPhone ecosystem. It is still believed that the design of iPhone 5 will be completely different from the earlier versions.
iPhone 5 Features
Some key features that are likely to appear in iPhone5:
- A quad-core processor – A5 or A6.
We can expect Apple either to inherit the existing A5 processor or introduce the upgraded and powerful A6 quad-core processor in iPhone5. Besides, you can also find a revamped GPU profile and clock speeds in the new iPhone.
- Improved Battery life.
After the 4G LTE upgrade on the phone, the tech giant will need to incorporate a larger and improved battery with low-power processor optimizations as 4G LTE will consume more battery than its 3G counterpart.
- Launch of iOS 6
After introducing iOS 5.1 with the new iPad and the latest software update with all iOS device, Apple is likely to continue the trend by launching its next important software upgrade with iOS 6 along with the launch of iPhone 5.
iPhone to Support 4G/LTE Technology?
After the 4G technology introduced to the newly launched iPad, we can expect to see 4G mobile broadband and LTE technology to the next Apple device, iPhone 5.
According to many sources, the iPhone 5 is likely to feature a larger, 4-inch, curved-glass screen. This is because the manufacturer want to stretch its screen size to keep pace with the tablet PC market.
The new reports in March 2012, further suggested that a larger 4.6-inch retina display will be introduced in the iPhone 5.
Digital wallet – NFC for iPhone5
Speculations are high on the inclusion of NFC technology in the new iPhone making it usable in place of cash or debit/credit cards.
Well, it can be true keeping in mind that most of the top smartphones today have the Google’s digital wallet feature and a developer working on this app has already confirmed the news.
According to the sources, the new iPhone 5 is likely to come with a better camera feature. Apple fans who got disappointed with only a five megapixel camera on the new iPad will be happy to know that the company will be offering a 13 megapixel camera, with CMOS sensor, from Sony on the new iPhone. If the rumours are true, Apple could see a record jump in its iPhone sale in the following year.
Already included in the new iPad, the improved version of this feature is likely to be introduced in the new iPhone. This is exciting because the iPhone users will now be able to recognize and highlight multiple faces at a time whilst capturing photos.
We can expect the latest version of Siri to overcome its past language barrier issues etc. to deliver better performance and improved user experience with the launch of iOS 6.
The release date of iPhone5
Seeing the past track record of iPhone releases, we can conclude that the iPhone 5 version may land up in the market between middle to last part of this year.
According to the current rumour, chances of the next generation iPhone getting released in June, 2012 is quite high. Apple is just waiting for a big event to make the announcement.
iPhone 5 price
The price of iPhone 5 is expected to be more or less the same though a higher price tag may get influenced by the higher UK VAT rates. Unless the new iPhone brings some truly path breaking technology with it, it should cost you around £500 for a 16GB / 32GB model.
iPhone 5 release date is one of the most-debated topics in the Internet world today. It’s all about the next-gen iPhone, the gadgets fan are waiting for as it will be the next biggest launch by the Apple.
